Ram Trucks Fills All 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition Orders Within Hours

August 24th, 2020 by

Ram Truck just announced that orders for the all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition were an absolute hit, with orders completely filled just three hours into going on sale. Ram only made 702 units of the TRX Launch Edition, commemorating the barrier-shattering 702-horsepower that the TRX model offers buyers. If this is any indication of how the pickup is going to be received once it rolls out across dealer lots, it’s safe to say Ram can expect the model to be successful. 

“The groundswell of demand for our all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition validates our efforts to bring the fastest, quickest, most powerful pickup truck to market. We said the ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition would go fast. And we meant that in more ways than one,” said Mike Koval JR., Head of Ram Brand.

Actual production of the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition is slated to begin during the fourth quarter of 2020. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA’s) Sterling Heights Assembly Plant will be the official site of assembly for the model.

Ram announced its plans to build a limited run of its TRX Launch Edition as soon as the pickup itself made its official debut. Designed as a way to commemorate the world’s most powerful pickup truck, the only catch being that U.S. buyers had to act quickly with only 702 units available. Visually distinguished thanks to its exterior Anvil Gray paint coat, the TRX Launch Edition also features a special red and brushed-aluminum center console badge along with other one-of-a-kind accents identifying it as special. The TRX Launch Edition package also includes a Head-up Display, beadlock-capable wheels, a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, bodyside graphics, carbon fiber interior trim, and a color accent package as well.

The all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX shows off as the apex predator of the truck world and pushes the Ram brand further than it’s ever been before. Enjoying its ride to the top as a brand, Ram is also enjoying being North America’s off-road truck leader. Ram’s light-duty Ram 1500 lineup sees quite the expansion with the addition of this latest extreme performance pickup truck. Designed down to its wires to significantly outperform other trucks on the market, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX handles all punishing conditions with the same extreme durability. Powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI V8 engine, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has a top speed of 118 mph and a whopping 702 horsepower. 

Such figures make the Ram 1500 TRX the quickest, fastest and most powerful mass-produced half-ton pickup in the world. Prospective buyers will also benefit from integrated fender flares that add a total of 8 inches in body width, along with 18-inch wheels clad in specially-designed 35-inch Wrangler Territory All-Terrain tires from Goodyear. Buyers can also enjoy the perks of driving a pickup with an all-new custom suspension that’s made of the highest quality components and its tuning is geared toward high-speed desert runs. The combination, along with the aforementioned tires, produces an even more capable truck — whether that pickup is on the streets or in the desert.
