Last drinks called for the 6.2L supercharged RAM TRX

By Evan Spence 5 Min Read

Final Edition RAM TRX announced, with just 130 examples of the high-performance ute available for the Australian market.

What’s the story?

At the end of 2023, overseas production of the current generation RAM TRX wrapped up. When I say this generation, I’m naturally referring to the RAM TRX with a fire-breathing 6.2L supercharged HEMI V8 engine. This engine produces 523kW and 882Nm, which is kind of nuts. In fact, RAM tells us this motor is capable of pushing this full-size truck to 100km/h in just 4.5 seconds. Savage!

Not only is the TRX fast, but it’s also really capable off-road; kind of like a real-life Hot Wheels creation. In the best possible way – well, except for the price tag of $249,950. Anyway, RAM has decided to create a new generation TRX. Which means the 6.2L HEMI is in the bin. A 3.0-litre twin-turbo engine (that makes less power yet is claimed to be more efficient) will take pride of place between the chassis rails. The Final Edition RAM TRX is your last chance to own a proper monster. With tightening emission laws making it harder and harder for manufacturers to make such exciting vehicles.
