The first Ram 1500 TRX 6×6, dubbed the Warlord and built by Apocalypse Manufacturing, was auctioned during Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale. However, this was not your typical Apocalypse Warlord as the Florida-based company took things a step further and cranked the supercharged Hemi V8 to 797 horsepower – as much as a Charger Hellcat Redeye.
Before the auction took place on January 29th between 6 PM and 8 PM MST, it seemed like the Warlord was going to set a mighty price as offers of $300,000 had already been made. However, the truck was running at no reserve, and it seems the winning bid was marginally lower than $300,000, but not by much. By the conclusion of the sale, the lucky owner of the first of its kind Apocalypse Warlord paid $275,000 for the absolute beast of a truck.
Apocalypse Warlord 6×6 Ram TRX: Details
The Apocalypse 6×6 Warlord stands at 264″ long and 94″ high and wide; the super-truck features the company’s custom, patented, tandem axle technology that evenly distributes the 797 ponies to each of the three axles at all times. In addition, the machine features six massive 37-inch mud-terrain tires wrapped around 20-inch bronze-colored SJF wheels designed by Apocalypse manufacturing. After spending $275,000 on the truck, we doubt that the owner intends to take it off-roading. But with full-time six-wheel drive, the vehicle can undoubtedly tackle almost any obstacle. There is also a seventh spare tire that sits in the pickup’s bed, should any of the other tires decide it’s time to go.
Other features of the Barrett-Jackson edition Apocalypse Walord include four high output KC LED spotlights, a LINE-X coated 9′ pickup bed, Dana 60 rear axle with lockers. Four off-road traction modes as well as custom off-road creation mode capabilities, and a custom suspension system that includes six active and electric Bilstein shocks. The Warlord can tow 12,000 lbs., which is facilitated by a heavy-duty tandem axle. We certainly hope that the truck won’t just sit in someone’s garage as a trophy with all the capability it has to offer.
