The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is the hottest truck in North America right now, packing 702 horsepower, 650 lb-ft of torque and the ability to use that power in just about any setting. The key issue with the Hellcat-powered pickup is that they are fairly expensive and more importantly, they are hard to find without a big dealer markup. Due to the ongoing global microchip shortage, the company is behind on production and trucks are in short order, so some dealerships are taking advantage of the big demand and small supply by jacking up the prices.
However, if Lady Luck smiles upon you, you could win a 2021 Ram 1500 TRX for just $10. CharityStars is currently holding a sweepstakes to win a TRX and entry packages begin at just $10. Of course, the more entries you buy, the better your chances of winning, but as you buy more, the entries cost less per piece, with 5,000 entries costing just $200. Best of all, even if you do not win, you are donating to a variety of good causes through CharityStars and Global Giving. Oh, and the winner of the Ram TRX will also get $10,000 to cover the taxes on the prize.
The Ram TRX
The odds are good that if you are interested in winning a Ram 1500 TRX, you know all about the world’s most powerful production truck, but just in case you do not, here is a quick rundown.
The Ram TRX is powered by the supercharged 6.2-liter Hemi V8 that also motivates the Dodge Hellcat models and the Jeep Trackhawk. In the Ram, this beastly V8 provides 702 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque, with the power being channeled to all four wheels by means of an 8-speed automatic transmission and a heavy duty four-wheel-drive system. Helping to make the most of the power on any off-road setting is an adjustable, adaptive Bilstein suspension system and big, beefy off-road tires on beadlock-capable wheels.
In short, the Ram 1500 TRX is the most powerful and most off-road capable truck in the world, but the engineers didn’t stop there. This monstrous pickup has a unique hood, fenders, bedsides and grille, providing plenty of engine-cooling air flow and room for the big tires to move on rough terrain. This truck is bigger and wider than any other Ram 1500, so it is easy to spot these beasts on the street.
Finally, the TRX comes with an interior layout that would make some European luxury sedans jealous, including a stunning 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system running the award-winning UConnect software. This Ram is built for high performance, but the cabin is designed for daily driving comfort.
