From the United States with fury: the model is now also available in Italy Ram TRX 1500, mammoth pick-up that stands out for its price, size and performance. The brand of the Stellantis group is specialized in the sector and in particular the TRX 1500 presents a card that would make electric enthusiasts lose their senses: it is fitted with a 6.2-liter Hemi V8 with a 711 horsepower volumetric compressor and 881 Nm of torque. That is the same engine found on the Dodge Charger and Challenger.
USA, Ram 1500 TRX è “Truck of the Year 2021”
The model, which features an eight-speed automatic transmission and obvious four-wheel drive, will be available to order from the Omsauto dealer, in detail from 14 July in the Padua and Grosseto offices. Forbidden to the faint of heart: prices start at 97,850 euros, excluding taxes and duties.
The TRX 1500 RAM differs from the ‘base’ version in several respects. Externally, the bodywork and the tracks are wider (20.3 and 15.2 cm respectively); the height is 5 centimeters higher due to the 35 inch Goodyear Territory tires. There is a hood with larger air intakes to let the Hemi engine described above breathe; there is also an exhaust system with twin glossy black tailpipes. In general, the look is a true animal of the dirt road, with the muscles in plain sight that betray indifference towards the ban on diesel and petrol engines proposed for 2035.
The performances are remarkable: 4.5 seconds to go from zero to 100 kilometers per hour, maximum speed limited to 190 per hour. There are 9 driving modes available, depending on the set-up in terms of gearbox, suspension and engine you want to get, from highway driving to steep climbs with rocks. For this reason, it features Bilstein active shock absorbers and oversized brakes.
