Does The Raptor Have Enough To Take Out The Mighty Ram TRX?​

Not Quite Yet...​

On Friday, Ford Motor Company announced that it would be unveiling its all-new 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Wednesday. The debut of Ford’s newest performance off-roader will be particularly interesting considering that this will be the first production year that Ford will have direct competition with the recently launched 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.

Assuming Ford's V8 supercharged version may slightly outpower the TRX, how soon will Ram respond with a "redeye" TRX?

Ram and Dodge are more then capable to put a redeye or demon and most likely the hellephant in the trx but its a matter of making it street legal.

The Ram 1500 is already 48V capable. This opens a door to leading edge intake boost technology. They could install a 48V transfer case while they are at it. TRX stands for Thirsty Ram Xpress.

I just wish pick up trucks came back as single cab. And strip of all electronics like back in the day. And still make power. Now you need to mortgage your house company and leave your wife to buy a pick up. Lol.

There are two possible solutions.
1. Buy a Ram Classic. You might have to order one the way you want it, but otherwise out here in middle America some dealers still stock single cab pickups. Don't forget, Ram 2500 is available as a single cab pickup as well. It also has a powerful standard motor.

2. Move to Mexico. Ram has a broader selection of trucks in Mexico and Fiat sells some under their brand name as well.

you can get fleet of contractor versions... that are pretty much what is asked for just not on the new one. Rubber mats and all.

Hellcat has plenty left it her to compete.

Well the raptor has launched - how disappointing.

Only interesting thing is switch to coils (which we already knew). Impressive travel. 37" tire option (but with less travel).

No engine specs yet, no performance specs. Frame tweaks. Shock tweaks. New interior. Propower option. Exhaust settings to make it sound meaner (like Wrangler 392).

Looks bad IMO compared to TRX.

Raptor R maybe coming next year
