Making a highly anticipated debut in North America, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has a menacing presence on and off the road. This all-new pickup truck has a racing-style design for best-in-class performance on highways. Having a class-leading ground clearance and up to nine driving modes, the 1500 TRX is ready to take on any rough landscape. The 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 prioritizes luxury and utility over off-road performance.

Power

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX extracts up to 702 total horsepower from a 6.2-L engine black with cast-iron composition. Supported by twin screws, a supercharger supplements this V-8 powertrain that burns gasoline in hemispherical combustion chambers. Having a 14,600-RPM redline rating, the exclusive HEMI powertrain dishes out 650 pound-feet of net torque. Boosted by the class-exclusive Launch Control technology, this racing-inspired pickup truck goes from 0 to 60 MPH in only 4.5 seconds. Delivering up to 420 hp and 460 lb-ft, a naturally aspirated 6.2-L engine is the most powerful option under the hood of the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500. Wearing the General Motors EcoTec3 badge, this V-8 engine doesn’t challenge the supercharged HEMI engine at all. However, this GMC pickup truck offers the 3.0-L Duramax engine that produces 460 lb-ft. This diesel-burning, turbocharged propulsion system is still significantly weaker than the high-output HEMI engine. The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX at Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat Fort Walton Beach has a maximum towing rating of just over 8,000 pounds.

Off-Road Handling

The rear suspension system has up to 14 inches of vertical travel, and the front suspension has up to 13 inches of vertical range. Clearing the ground by slightly more than 8 inches, the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 is at a higher risk of getting stuck on rugged trails. You could take the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX online test drive with up to eight nine driving modes. For example, the Baja Mode allows this pickup truck to conquer steep sand dunes. Creating a 50-50 torque split, the Rock Mode optimizes low-speed crawling on rocky surfaces. The Mud/Sand Mode creates a 45/55 torque ratio for reliable traction on muddy and sandy surfaces. Extreme winter weather won’t hinder this all-new Ram pickup truck, which can simply run on the Snow Mode. Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat Fort Walton Beach will demonstrate how to apply the Sport Mode, Custom Mode and Valet Mode during an online test drive in this tough pickup truck. The 2021 Sierra 1500’s Traction Select System offers a maximum of six driving modes. In fact, the Snow Mode is only available for trims that roll on a rear-wheel drive.

Design

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX at Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram Fiat Fort Walton Beach comes with an air-intake scoop on the hood. This racing-inspired accessory optimizes the consumption of air during combustion.
