Performance Starts With the Engine

The Ram 1500 has five distinct engines available across its different trim levels, with each one offering the driver something a little different.

3.0L EcoDiesel V6

260 horsepower, 480 lb-ft of torque

3.6L Pentastar® V6 with eTorque

305 horsepower, 269 lb-ft of torque

5.7L HEMI® V8

395 horsepower, 410 lb-ft of torque

5.7L HEMI® V8 with eTorque

395 horsepower, 410 lb-ft of torque

6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 engine

702 horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque

No matter which engine you choose for your Ram 1500, you’re going to be getting a powerful machine. But when it comes to the 6.2L Supercharged HEMI® V8 engine, you’re going to be getting THE most powerful factory-installed engine ever in a half-ton truck.

This bad boy (the standard engine in the Ram 1500 TRX) hits 0 to 60 MPH in just 4.5 seconds, and is engineered to withstand 1,595 psi—or the equivalent of nearly 20,000 pounds of force. When you drive the TRX, you will truly feel as powerful as a ram. In fact, you might just feel more powerful.

Supercharged Towing

Towing is one of the most important factors when it comes to getting a truck. So, rest assured, the Ram 1500 is an incredibly capable towing machine. When properly equipped, this truck can tow up to 12,500 pounds and carry a maximum payload of up to 2,300 pounds. To put that in perspective, you’ll be able to tow all but the largest camping trailers!

RAM 1500 TRX Off-Roading Power

Take It Off the Road

Yes, with the Ram 1500 you are no longer bound to the pavement. You can take it far and wide, across many a surface. How? Well, look to the Ram 1500 Rebel for answers. With aggressive all-terrain tires, a factory lift of one inch for increased ride height, and an electronic locking rear axle, this trim level will take you to places you could never imagine.

With the TRX, you’ll be a complete monster on the trails. With eight available drive modes, you’ll be able to conquer all sorts of terrain. While in Rock Mode, Selec-Speed® Control holds a set velocity, allowing for a controlled descent down those rocky slopes. In Mud/Sand Mode, its unique torque distribution will improve your traction and mitigate wheel slip.

What does all this mean? Dominance on all terrain.
