Each year, the editors of FOUR WHEELER, an off-road enthusiast publication, present the “Pickup Truck of the Year” award to the best performing truck. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX recently earned this title after beating its competitors in a grueling competition.
FOUR WHEELER judges tested new or greatly revised trucks on over 1,000 miles of pavement, dirt, sand, snow, mud, gravel, and rocks. Trucks needed to climb uphill on loose dirt, cross water, and drive at night during the testing. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX blew the competition away, thanks to its impressive durability and capabilities.
This truck features the Supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V8, which delivers best-in-class 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. It’s the first Ram truck to have Launch Control with Launch Assist, improving the acceleration rate. Plus, it offers eight drive modes and 11.8 inches of ground clearance for off-roading adventures.
“The Ram 1500 TRX is a breathtaking truck that flat out impresses,” said FOUR WHEELER Editor Ken Brubaker. “From its bad-boy muscular stance to its stunning pin-you-to-your-seat power to its incredible suspension that easily tames the worst terrain, the TRX is the total package.”
