The last of the Hellcat trucks.
If trucks are the workhorses of the automotive world and muscle cars are the thoroughbreds, then imagine a mythical creature that combines both—majestic yet muscular, elegant yet rugged. Welcome to the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX, a vehicle as astonishing as a centaur in Greek mythology, blending the best attributes of a pick-up and a muscle car. This beast, however, is approaching its twilight; 2024 marks the "Last Call" for this HEMI Supercharged V8 marvel.
Learn how a classic car attacked a man here.
Often lauded as the “apex predator of the truck world,” the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX doesn’t merely talk the talk; it stomps the stomps. Nestled under its robust hood is a 6.2L Supercharged HEMI V8, a fire-breathing dragon that unleashes 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. With a max speed of 118 mph and an ability to catapult from 0-60 mph in a jaw-dropping 4.5 seconds, this isn't just a truck; it's a legend on four wheels.
But like all great tales, this one too has an ending. The Ram 1500 TRX is preparing to take its final bow, following in the tracks of its HEMI kin like the Dodge Challenger and Charger, each of which have also heralded their "Last Call" models. "This is not the end of TRX's story," assures Ram brand CEO Tim Kuniskis. But it's indeed a poignant pause, a curtain close on a chapter that has redefined off-road performance trucks.
So What’s the Grand Finale Like?
As one would expect from a vehicle of such stature, the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX—Final Edition intends to go out with an unmistakable roar rather than a whimper. It will don eight exterior colors, including three fresh entrants—Delmonico Red, Night Edge Blue, and Harvest Sunrise—to the palette, offering an even broader canvas for personalization. But that's not all; the truck comes pre-loaded with an expansive list of factory-included tech, graphics, performance parts, and exterior accessories.
Slide into the interior, and you're enveloped in luxury that rivals the creature comforts of premium sedans. The seats are embroidered with a “TRX” logo and intricate Patina stitching graces the dashboard. Plus, let's not forget the exclusive Final Edition cluster splash screen and the Satin Titanium-finished passenger-side TRX dashboard badge. Even the steering wheel and instrument panel are adorned with 4×4 weave matte carbon fiber.
Safety-wise, this truck is as protective as it is powerful. You're cocooned in a web of advanced features like adaptive cruise control, Lane Keep Assistant, pedestrian emergency braking, and ParkSense front and rear park assist.
The Price Tag & Availability
The 2024 Ram 1500 TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8—Final Edition doesn't come cheap; it carries a starting MSRP of $117,625, plus a $1,995 destination charge. But then again, legends are priceless. The vehicle will be available in the fourth quarter of 2023, marking a bittersweet end to a monumental era.
So here's your last chance to own a piece of history, a relic that embodies the daring spirit of both muscle cars and rugged trucks. As the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX takes its final bow, one can't help but feel a twinge of nostalgia mixed with excitement—much like the closing chapter of an epic saga that leaves you eagerly awaiting the next installment.
