These are the Best Off-roading Pickups From Ram Trucks
Off-roading can be quite an adventure, but avid enthusiasts know a truck with all the right features is the answer to traversing challenging terrain. The following Ram trucks have been deemed by experts to have proper off-road equipment and other features that make traveling off the beaten path safer, smarter, and most importantly: more fun!
2021 Ram 2500 Power Wagon
Long considered the granddaddy of off-road pickups thanks to its roots that stretch all the way to World War II, the Ram 2500 Power Wagon means business. Today’s Power Wagon pickup is a bonafide workhorse — based on the original Ram 2500, the Power Wagon trim is the ideal pickup that can handle work and play without any issues. Ram’s current off-road toolbox far surpasses its competitors’ thanks to cutting-edge technology. Automotive experts especially highlight the Power Wagon’s ingenious suspension that includes a disconnecting anti-roll bar, a Warn winch with a synthetic line, and a 360-degree camera system for optimal visibility while on the trail. Standard with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8, the Ram 2500 Power Wagon is best-suited for creeping along trails as opposed to high-speed desert driving.
2021 Ram 1500 TRX
Enthusiasts waited a long time for the arrival of this beast, but the 2021 MotorTrend Truck of the Year pulls no punches. Tired of losing ground to Ford in the extreme off-road segment, Ram came through with a high-speed off-roader that definitely changed the off-road game. Thanks to the full-time four-wheel-drive system, and the hefty supercharged V8 Hellcat engine, acceleration for the Ram 1500 TRX is no problem. The TRX also offers a beefed-up frame and a long-travel suspension that’s paired with all-new Bilstein E2 dampers and hefty tires that are 35-inches tall. It was designed to be the king of the desert and Ram spared no expense when it came to the design. Additionally, the fact that the TRX has a water fording depth of 32 inches certainly proves that this pickup has plenty of other possibilities in store — including becoming the ultimate mud running pickup.
2021 Ram 1500 Rebel
Experts recognize the Ram 1500 Rebel as the more sensible sibling to the TRX. Although there’s no Hellcat engine under the hood with its 702 horsepower, the Ram 1500 Rebel is an excellent performer both on and off the beaten path. Bilstein dampers, a one-inch suspension lift, available adjustable air suspension, and massive front skid plate set the Ram 1500 Rebel apart from other light-duty 4×4 pickups. The Ram 1500 Rebel also offers buyers an electronic locking rear differential and 33-inch tires, while a 5.7-liter HEMI V8 engine or a light-duty diesel engine are both optional upgrades to the standard V6. Offering the best of both worlds, the Ram 1500 Rebel isn’t so specialized that it’s forced to compromise on everyday riding and handling. As far as daily drivers go, the Ram 1500 Rebel is the easiest to live with from this list.
