The responsibilities of a pickup truck have changed in the modern era. Trucks of today find themselves toting kids to school as often as they haul bales of hay around the farm. Yet, many modern pickup truck designers seem to have forgotten this. The offerings that roll off their factory floors are high-horsepower brutes that cannot hope to find a place in the polite company of a downtown street. However, there are some notable exceptions, mostly from RAM truck assembly plants. And there is no better example of this trend than the RAM 1500 TRX, the 2021 MotorTrend Truck of the Year.

With the 2021 1500 TRX, RAM has produced a beast which outclasses the competition both on and off the road. The TRX produces 705 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque and can drive off-road at speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour. It also boasts a maximum towing capacity of 8,100 pounds. Yet a comfortable ride quality and opulent interior give the TRX a luxury vehicle feel lacking in other off-road machines. As the optimal mix of style and performance, the TRX is well-deserving of its MotorTrend Truck of the Year honor.

Unmatched Off-road Performance

When MotorTrend automotive magazine declared the 1500 TRX its Truck of the Year, the writers mentioned factors such as its innovative construction and impressive performance on surfaces such as mud, snow and sand. The vehicle's high-strength steel frame can even tolerate airborne jumps, and a complicated system of one-way intake valves keeps dust out of the engine.

The TRX is a top performer in other environments, as well. The truck's 11.8-inch ground clearance complements its 32-inch fording capabilities. Specially-designed 35-inch tires, paired with 18-inch wheels, help the TRX handle whatever lies beneath.

Unparalleled Interior Refinement

Based on numbers alone, the TRX is an exciting truck. Yet in this day and age, it takes far more than sheer numbers to be a Truck of the Year. The most impressive facet of the 1500 TRX is the way the truck pairs its off-road capabilities with a smooth on-road demeanor and a comfortable, even opulent, interior. This dimension brought the original RAM 1500 the Truck of the Year award in 2019, and it made the RAM Heavy Duty the 2020 Truck of the Year. Now, in 2021, the TRX continues to raise the bar.

Despite being an off-road machine, the 2021 RAM 1500 TRX offers responsive steering and superb handling. Eight drive modes allow the vehicle to give the best ride quality for the conditions underneath. An abundance of available add-ons, including leather seating and advanced safety technology, allow drivers to really spruce up their ride.

The command center of the 1500 TRX is a twelve-inch touchscreen which can display multiple menus at the same time. Satellite radio and navigation are included, as well as Apple and Android compatibility. The truck also provides physical buttons and knobs as a redundant interface.

2021 RAM 1500 TRX - The Truck for Every Occasion

The 2021 RAM 1500 TRX is an outstanding choice in the world of pickup trucks. While the 1500 TRX is developed for the wildest of adventure, Spartanburg drivers do not have to sacrifice performance for practicality. After all, modern pickups are far more than specialized work vehicles. RAM kept this fact in mind when designing the truck, and the result is a stunning endorsement of the brand.
