While have discussed the overall details of RAM’s all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX performance off-roader, we figured we would dig deeper into where owners are going to spend most of their time, inside. The Ram TRX shows off many of the Ram 1500’s all-new technology updates for the 2021 model year, pushing the Ram 1500 as the most technologically advanced pickup ever.
With the most spacious interior in the segment offers an all-new look using authentic premium materials, colors, and textures. Get behind the wheel of the TRX, you will be welcomed with hand-wrapped leather instrument panels for unexpected luxury throughout the cabin. The TRX features three interior options, includes premium cloth and vinyl, a premium wrapped leather and suede, or a premium wrapped leather and suede with available red and carbon fiber accents.
New flat-bottom steering offers enhanced hand grips wrapped in leather with optional suede and carbon-fiber accents. As we stated in previous posts, new aluminum paddle shifters stretch above and below the steering wheel spokes.
A completely reimagined center console with maximum storage includes a new performance-oriented floor shifter, as well as a wireless charging dock, and five USBs including both Type A and C ports. A custom specifications plate, which we saw earlier thanks to our friends TFLTruck.com, sits on the console lid lists which engine is under the hood, the type of supercharger Ram TRX uses, boost output, horsepower and the vehicle-specific Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).
The new 2021 Ram TRX is loaded with an array of innovative features combined with the award-winning fourth-generation Uconnect system that offers convenience and connected services, keeping Ram truck customers engaged and informed all while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road or desert path ahead.
The 2021 Ram TRX interior’s high-tech centerpiece, the 12-inch Uconnect 4C with Navigation fully configurable touchscreen, is standard and allows for even more customization. Other features include SiriusXM with 360L, Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora, and personal device integration.
The touchscreen can house one application, such as the navigation map, across the entire 12-inch screen or can be divided in half, operating two different applications at once. A multifunction switch bank and the optional Trailer Reverse Steer Control sit below the touchscreen, giving physical control of specific features. Redundant HVAC controls are located on both sides of the display.
An audiophile-quality audio system is offered to immerse passengers in the ultimate sound experience, including a class-exclusive 900-watt premium Harman Kardon audio system with 19 speakers and a 10-inch subwoofer – the finest and most powerful audio system available in a pickup.
Ram TRX uses a 7-inch thin-film transistor (TFT) cluster that is exclusive to the model and features a lit TRX badge, unique TRX colors, and graphics with reconfigurable gauges. The same graphics appear on the 12-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen, too. This is the first time that Drive Modes and Off-road Performance Pages are displayed on the 12-inch Uconnect 4C screen.
Performance Pages give drivers the tools necessary to become familiar with their vehicle’s performance. The app provides access to real-time vehicle performance information, including timers (such as 0-60 mph elapsed time), g-force, gauges, and engine performance. This data can be downloaded to a USB stick, allowing for easy sharing of your driving performance. Owners can also download data to the web. The introduction of the Ram TRX marks the first time Performance Pages is available on an FCA vehicle equipped with the 12-inch Uconnect 4C with Navigation touchscreen.
Off-Road Pages show ride height, the transfer case’s position, the pitch and roll of the vehicle, and accessory gauges. The app is accessible through the 7-inch TFT cluster or 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen. The introduction of the Ram TRX marks the first time Off-Road Pages is available on an FCA vehicle equipped with the 12-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen.
As part of the available 360-degree Surround View Camera system, a forward-facing off-road camera allows obstructions ahead on the trail to be easily seen. The front camera sits under the crossbar that dissects TRX’s grille and can be accessed through the available Off-Road Pages.
An all-new available digital rearview mirror option replaces the traditional rearview mirror with a 9.2-inch-wide LCD monitor. The digital rearview mirror displays video in real-time from a rear-facing camera and can be turned off to revert back to a traditional reflective mirror.
