The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is FOUR WHEELER’s “2021 Pickup of the Year”

February 5th, 2021 by

FOUR WHEELER magazine deemed the all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX its “2021 Pickup of the Year,” adding yet another accolade for the pickup that’s slowly making its way to dealer lots. The distinction is awarded by the editors of the opinion-leading, off-roading enthusiast publication every year. 

“We’re incredibly proud to earn this award from the respected experts at FOUR WHEELER and feel validated that we continue to build the best trucks available. Our new Ram 1500 TRX sets the benchmark for extreme performance pickup trucks and clearly telegraphs the Ram Truck brand’s leadership in the segment,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram Brand Chief Executive Officer — Stellantis. 

FOUR WHEELER’s editors and judges conducted numerous tests over the course of a week that spanned more than 1,000 miles of various terrain, including gravel, pavement, sand, dirt, ricks, snow, and mud. Additionally, FOUR WHEELER also added a loose-dirt hill climb and water crossings to the slew of tests as well. Night driving was also part of the testing phase as the judges sought to gauge each vehicle’s lighting equipment. The judging panels included staff from numerous 4×4 media brands, including FOUR WHEELER, JP MAGAZINE, and 4-WHEEL & OFF-ROAD. 

“The Ram 1500 TRX is a breathtaking truck that flat out impresses. From its bad-boy muscular stance to its stunning pin-you-to-your-seat power to its incredible suspension that easily tames the worst terrain, the TRX is the total package,” said FOUR WHEELER Editor Ken Brubaker. FOUR WHEELER’s “Pickup Truck of the Year” award is currently in its 32nd consecutive year and remains an invitation-only competition. It is specifically open to all-new or significantly overhauled pickup trucks for the upcoming model year.

The all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX also made the headlines in late 2020 as it was deemed MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year, the third consecutive time Ram Trucks took home top honors. Initially, Ram won Truck of the Year in 2019 for its revamped Ram 1500, for its improved Ram Heavy Duty lineup in 2020, and now in 2021 for the explosively-awesome Ram 1500 TRX. As pickups begin crossing the finish line at the assembly plant, Ram is currently in the process of delivering its 702 units of the (sold out) 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition. The Launch Edition pickup from Ram comes with an exclusive Anvil Gray paint job, a special red interior cabin, and is complete with a brushed aluminum center console badge indicating its a Launch Edition model.
