The Ram is going Raptor hunting!
Ram 1500 and 2500 are imported to the only authorised car factory located in Melbourne, where they remanufactured both of these vehicles to right-hand drive meeting Australian new car standards. The Ram has been the market leader for large trucks in Australia and its no surprise why.
The RAM was and still is a success in the Australian car market with almost no competition from any other brand. What To Ridethinks that if Ford gets its F-150 beast to Australia with General Motors bringing in the Chevrolet Silverado, then RAM sales may get affected. However, RAM is ahead of the game by revealing their new RAM 1500 TRX.
The New RAM 1500 TRX has high off-road capabilities where all the power is distributed across the four wheels via an eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission. The V8 game is strong where the RAM TRX is concerned using the Hemi V8 and will possess a 6.2 L Supercharged engine producing a whopping 520kW whilst its American competitor, the Ford Raptor F-150, only has a 3.5 L V6 turbocharged engine with a 335kW of power.
This new Ute is not only a beast off-roader daring to tackle any terrain and challenges faced, but it can also race a sports car galloping from 0-100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds. The new RAM TRX is well equipped to sprint across the desert with its new dual-path air induction system keeping the RAM TRX cool. This upgrade will make it the ideal choice to travel across the Australian Outback or the Middle Eastern Sahara, especially with its new filter system which filters out all the dust and sand.
For a Ute or large truck to be labeled as a great off-roader, the assessment shouldn’t only be based on power and the Four Wheel Drive System, but also how much this new large truck can resist and protect the body and frame from standard off-road abuse. This great off-roader is thankfully well protected when it comes to this aspect.
The Ram 1500 TRX is indeed a highly capable Ute with a ground clearance of 300mm. It’s ideal for new car buyers who are planning to try off-roading, towing, or moving stuff. The towing capacity for the new RAM TRX is 3,675kg with a 594kg Payload.
The latest car news the RAM 1500 TRX has the technology to tackle any challenges with its high-tech off-road system. The driver can choose from three different off-road modes. Rock, Mud/Sand, and Baja. These different modes adjust the transmission gear change, the All-Wheel Drive System, suspension, and the throttle reaction.
The new RAM 1500 TRX interior will give you the feel of a luxury car with a 12-inch infotainment touchscreen with the latest technology, together with Sat-Nav, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
It’s no wonder RAM is a market leader as these beasts are well desired for a reason. They are beautifully bulky and can conquer all-terrain whilst simultaneously being incredibly fun to drive! They’re definitely a renowned favorite.
