Ram 1500 TRX
If you’re looking for a truck with supercharged power and a luxurious interior, look no further. The Ram 1500 TRX has a supercharged 6.2L Hemi V8 engine, capable of up to 702 hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, making it the quickest, fastest, and the most powerful pickup truck in the world. This is thanks to the twin-screw supercharger, which gives the TRX near-instantaneous torque.
The TRX isn’t only powerful on the road. The 35 inch tires, reinforced steel frame Bilstein Block Hawk e2 system, electronic-locking rear differential, and 15 inch brakes work together to make the Ram TRX the perfect off-roading vehicle. It gets 11.8 inches of ground clearance, 13 inches of front suspension travel, and 14 inches of rear suspension travel – helping you to navigate any type of terrain. If you love going off-roading in the Kentucky countryside, the TRX is the truck for you.
The exterior of the TRX has an extra eight inches of exterior width from the normal Ram 1500 and 35 inch tires, giving it a powerful stance on the road. The hood scoop features LED amber identification lamps, a custom look that sets you apart on Lexington streets. The RAM badge on the grille is a multi-functional feature. Not only does it look menacing on the road, but it also helps to provide up to 32.9 liters of air to the engine every minute.
