702 Horsepower In The Johnson Valley Part Of The Mojave Desert...

Earlier this week, Ram Trucks introduced its newest special edition of its awesome 2022 Ram 1500 TRX: the Sandblast Edition. The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition, is a follow-up to the successful TRX Ignition Orange Edition and uses a similar formula by blending a unique exterior color, interior appointments, and content.

So what sets the TRX Sandblast Edition apart from the rest of the TRX models? It starts with a unique Mojave Sand (PTA) exterior color and graphics. It also includes a dual-pane panoramic sunroof, unique carbon-fiber accents, Light Frost accent stitching, an embroidered “TRX” seat back logo, spray-in bedliner, and a set of all-black 18-inch Beadlock capable wheels.

But what many people didn’t know is that co-founder of DC Shoes and professional rally racer extraordinaire, Ken Block was tapped by Ram to put the Sandblast Edition through its paces. Upon hearing this, Block took the newest TRX to Johnson Valley, California (home of “King of the Hammers“) to see just how tough the TRX is off-road.

Ken paces the new TRX Sandblast Edition through whoops, donuts, jumps dune slides, and even a little Gymkhana antics. His 15-minute video gives us the best look at the Sandblast Edition yet and shows us just how good the Mojave Sand exterior looks against the Mojave Desert. 

The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition will have a U.S. Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $98,285 (not including $1,795 for destination). The newest special edition model will go on sale this summer.
