-

HOW do you top the apex predator of the truck world? By introducin­g the 2021 Ram TRX 1500 Launch Edition. Along with the world debut of the all-new ’21 Ram 1500 TRX super truck, the Ram brand announced plans to build a limited run of TRX Launch Edition models. U.S. buyers will have to act quickly. Only 702 units will be sold as a commemorat­ion of the TRX’S segment-topping 702 horsepower.

“The Ram team is as excited about the all-new

’21 Ram 1500 TRX as our customers are,” said Mike Koval Jr., head of Ram Brand, FCA - North America. “Many of those customers have been asking for something special, even above the TRX’S already loaded features.”

The TRX Launch Edition is visually distinguis­hed by its Anvil Gray paint, which will be exclusive to the edition. Inside, each of the TRX Launch Edition trucks gets a special red and brushed-aluminum center console badge identifyin­g it as a special, limited-edition TRX model.

The Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition package is coupled with the TRX Level 2 Equipment Group, adding carbon fiber interior trim, color accent package, Head-up display, bead lock-capable wheels, 19-speaker Harman

Kardon premium sound system, dual-pane panoramic sunroof and bodyside graphics.

Production of the ’21 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition starts in early fourth-quarter 2020. The ’21 Ram 1500 TRX is built at FCA’S Sterling Heights, Michigan, assembly plant.

The ’21 Ram 1500 TRX is powered by the 702-horsepower supercharg­ed 6.2-liter HEMI V-8 engine, delivering a top speed of

118 mph. New integrated fender flares add 8 inches of body width, making room for new 18-inch wheels that are wrapped in 35-inch Wrangler Territory All-terrain tires from Goodyear. This combinatio­n, paired with an all-new custom suspension and tuning geared toward high-speed desert runs, produces even more capability on the street or in the desert.
