Ram will auction off the first of its 702-hp Hellcat-powered 1500 TRX off-road pickup trucks off the line, which wears VIN #001. The sale will take place at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction in Arizona on Friday, March 26. All proceeds will benefit the United Way for Southeastern Michigan. If you're interested in bidding on the VIN #001 1500 TRX, bids can be placed online or via phone at Barrett-Jackson's website.
This first TRX is an Anvil Gray Launch Edition. Only 702 TRX Launch Edition pickups will be produced, an appropriate number given how many ponies the supercharged V-8 makes, and the automaker says they're all sold out. The Launch Edition is finished in an exclusive Anvil Gray, and inside each one has a unique red and aluminum center console badge denoting its exclusivity. VIN #001 features added accessories from Mopar such as a RamBar (not pictured), rock rails, and a bed-mounted spare tire carrier, plus the TRX's Level 2 equipment package with features including carbon-fiber interior trim, a Harman/Kardon sound system, and beadlock-capable wheels.
Stellantis's Hellcat supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 is is under the hood, and in the 1500 TRX it produces 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. In our testing, it hurtled the 6866-pound TRX to 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and a 12.3-second quarter-mile at 110 mph, making it the quickest pickup truck we've ever tested. The beast is even quicker to 60 mph than the Toyota Supra, and it's currently the most powerful production pickup on sale. That is, until the 700-plus-hp Ford F-150 Raptor R comes out in February and makes the battle for off-road pickup supremacy a lot more interesting.
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX VIN #001 Launch Edition will be on display at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale from March 20 to 27. The winner of the auction will also receive an authentication kit that includes a book on TRX's development, exclusive photos and video, a speed-form model, and a Ram truck cover.
