2021 Ram 1500 TRX
Under the hood of the Ram 1500 TRX, is the legendary 6.2 L Supercharged HEMI V8 engine with best-in-class 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque for a 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds. It's complemented by 8-speed automatic transmission and features a robust cast-iron engine block with a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearings, engineered to withstand 1,595 psi. Class-Exclusive Bilstein Black Hawk e Shocks will continuously adjust to change terrain with supernatural speeds and even recognize when the TRX has left the ground to adjust damping while airborne. When you are on the ground, you've got an incredible 11.8-inches of clearance and a high-performance air induction system that filters four times as much water, dirt, and debris than the previous class leader while consuming up to 30,000 L of air per minute.
The Ram 1500 TRX comes with a suite of customizable performance and off-road pages that are designed to help tailor vehicle performance to your driving needs and are integrated within the 12-inch touchscreen. These features include Launch Control which regulates engine RPM and monitors wheel slip feedback for the fastest possible acceleration rate, a customizable dashboard to monitor horsepower readings, steering angle measurements, personal records, and more, Dyno/Engine which allows you to measure your peak horsepower, torque, and boost pressure with an integrated dynamometer, and Vehicle Dynamics to dial in the optimal steering angle, lock your axles, and modulate your transfer case gearing.
The Ford F-150 Raptor
The Ford F-150 Raptor is powered by a high-output 3.5 L V6 EcoBoost engine with 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. It is paired with an electronic 10-speed transmission complete with Tow/Haul mode and Auto Start/Stop engine technology. Class-Exclusive high-output, off-road FOX live valve monotube shocks featuring internal bypass technology deliver superior control and maximize your off-road experience.

The Raptor's Terrain Management System comes with seven preset modes for different terrain and driving conditions including Normal, Sport, Slippery, Tow/Haul, Deep Snow/Sand, Baja, and Rock Crawl. No matter how bumpy the road gets, you'll stay comfortable in the 10-way power-adjustable driver and front passenger seats with lumbar support.
