Shortly after Ram began giving the keys to the 1500 TRX to journalists in the United States, The Fast Lane Truck got behind the wheel and immediately set about comparing it to the F-150 Raptor. In particular, they wanted to see how the two fare in a straight line.
Sure, the F-150 Raptor and Ram 1500 TRX go over 60 mph, but there’s no doubt that performance is one of the selling points of these two trucks.
Also note: Could the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX be the ultimate all-round machine?
First the numbers. The outgoing F-150 Raptor is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with two turbochargers that produces 450 hp and is combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission. For comparison: the TRX’s 6.2-liter V8 supercharger has an output of 702 hp and is coupled with an eight-speed automatic.
To make the comparison as even as possible, the examiners did not use the TRX’s launch control system. First up was the F-150, which recorded the best 0-60 mph of 7.02 seconds and 7.74 seconds in its two runs. Then it was the turn of the Ram 1500 TRX. On its first run it took only 5.17 seconds to get to 60 mph and on the second it took 5.66 seconds to get to the same mark.
FCA claims the TRX can reach 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, but that’s with the launch control system activated; In addition, times in the 5-second range without an activated system are very respectable.
