Inside the Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition

October 14th, 2021 by

The Ram 1500 TRX made quite the splash in the pickup world when it debuted for the 2021 model year as the first real contender to take on the Ford F-150 off-road. Highly-lauded publication MotorTrend was so smitten with the truck that they deemed it worthy as the winner of its Truck of the Year competition. While the off-road suspension and wide fender flares may pack quite a punch, nothing is as thrilling as the 702-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V8 engine under the hood. 

Right from the start, Ram knew demand would be high, thus the pickup debuted 702 units of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition to drum up interest prior to a full-blown launch. These days, as the new model year (2022) looms right on the horizon, Ram is offering limited quantities of special edition trims once again. With only 875 pickups slated for production, Ram Truck introduced the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition at the State Fair of Texas. 

Just like the Launch Edition of the Ram 1500 TRX had a unique exterior color, the Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition comes in a one-of-a-kind Ignition Orange exterior, complete with special graphics. Ram added standard 18-inch black wheels with a machined face to add some more character to the pickup. All 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition pickups come standard with the TRX Level 2 Equipment Group Package along with many other features, including a spray-in bedliner, a deployable bed-step, an LED third brake light, adjustable cargo tie-down hooks, pedestrian emergency braking, a head-up display system, and a dual-pane panoramic sunroof. 

On the inside, this TRX Ignition Edition shines and showcases its own identity thanks to Copperhead Orange stitching, an orange center console badge, various copper-colored carbon fiber accents, and embroidered TRX seat logos. Buyers will also enjoy orange tweeters and Ram’s head logos on the all-weather slush mats. As an added bonus, the driver’s screen has a fun Ignition Orange TRX graphic. The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition has a starting MSRP of $93,280 (plus destination fee) and is slated to go on sale later this year (2021).

Three Things to Love About the Ram 1500 TRX 

Off-roading Chops – More than loaded when it comes to off-road features, the Ram 1500 TRX includes a reinforced frame, forged aluminum front control arms, four-wheel drive, Wrangler Territory All-Terrain tires, Bilstein adaptive shocks, and underbody skid plates. 

Hellcat Power – It bears repeating that there’s an 875-horsepower behemoth resting beneath the hood of the Ram 1500 TRX. This massive truck only has 15 horsepower less than a Dodge Challenger Hellcat muscle car!

Luxurious Cabin – Taking the redesigned Ram 1500 cabin to new heights, the Ram 1500 TRX interior features unmatched style, quality, and overall comfort. Buyers will find customized touches throughout, including a flat-bottom steering wheel, aluminum paddle shifters, and available suede and premium leather upholstery.
