What is in store for 2022, for the new seductive and incredibly sexy powerful beast that is the RAM 1500 TRX? A brand new edition, the TRX Ignition! But beware, for this newest edition, only 100 trucks will be arriving in Canada, out of the 895 that have been produced. It will definitely stand out from the crowd with, amongst other things, an exclusive, flashy and truly magnificent body color –Ignition Orange-, copper carbon fibber accents found throughout the interior, orange topstitches, the orange TRX logo embroidered on the seats, Head-up display and emergency braking. This outstanding version is sold at a base price of $ 125,075.

Obviously, in order to be able handle all of this added power, the TRX has gone through a few changes. Here they are:

  • Bilstein Black Hawk high-performance shock absorbers;
  • Electronic shift-on-the-fly full-time transfer case;
  • E-Locker electronic locking rear differential;
  • Air intake under the hood;
  • Protection plates.

Contrary to most of its competitors, this truck –even with its imposing size- will give you a spectacular 0-100 km/hr time of as little as 4.5 seconds. Spectacular indeed! Other than these impressive numbers, the TRX interior is just as remarkable with its unique details, such as:

  • A heated flat-bottom leather and suede upholstered steering wheel;
  • Performance pages giving you information such as: timers, G-force, gauges, etc.;
  • Ambient lighting.

Amongst other special features, the 2022 RAM 1500 TRX can easily drive through water (as long as it is no deeper than 32 inches), can tow up to 594 kg (1,310 pounds), offers 8 driving modes (Auto, Sport, Tow, Snow, Custom, Mud/Sand, Rock and Baja).

Also, since the TRX is quite skilled when it comes to off-road driving, the manufacturer had to make a few changes: compared to the rest of the 1500 clan, the TRX is 8 inches wider, 2 inches taller and the angles have been adjusted.

In a few words, the 2022 RAM 1500 TRX not only has unique aptitudes and qualities, it also has a stunning physique, with its imposing grille, black rocker panels and air intake under the hood, high-end bi-LED automatic Smartbeams with black trims.
