When the Ram TRX was unveiled, it did a good job of drawing newfound levels of excitement and curiosity to the Ram brand. The idea of a 702 horsepower trailbusting Ram 1500 seemed like a wild insane fantasy dreamed up in the pages of a Spawn comic book. But Ram engineers delivered the goods.
Of course, the question is, what does the engine sound like in a truck that’s already prompting Ford to allegedly explore putting the GT500’s engine into its next generation Raptor model? A new video that has emerged set out to answer this question, and your ears will indeed be pleased with the answer.
Posted originally via Instagram by user hydrotrx (and referred to us by a friend of the office,) the video all but confirms that the TRX will have the bark to match the wild levels of performance generated by the supercharged Hellcat V-8 lurking under the hood. While the video only features a cold start and a subsequent idle, it’s certainly much more authoritative than any F-150 Raptor we’ve heard recently, and it should cause plenty of banter with your neighbors when you go out to start your truck every morning.
As a bonus, this is the first time that we have seen a TRX in the wild that is adorned with this particular blue hue (with other pictures featuring either grey or red.) We like the way it meshes with the black lettering on the tailgate, and it makes a unique styling statement.
As for the TRX itself, deliveries of the standard model to dealers are slated to take place by the end of the year. If your looking for a limited edition TRX Launch Edition? You’re out of luck, with Ram selling out all 702 examples in less than 3 hours. That should give you plenty of time to save up your hard-earned dollars, and also slip a few packs of ear plugs into your neighbors mailboxes.
