Regrettably, the day that many anticipated has arrived. Stellantis has unveiled plans to phase out the iconic HEMI® engine lineup in favor of environmentally conscious twin-turbocharged inline-six engines. In this transition, the Ram brand has announced the bittersweet news that the era of the HEMI-powered Ram TRX is drawing to a close.
After the 2024 model year, the curtain will fall on the HEMI HELLCAT engine, marking the end of an era for the renowned Ram TRX. Since its remarkable debut in 2020, the TRX has stood as a pinnacle in the off-road and performance truck segments. Ram has unveiled plans to craft a limited “Final Edition” set to debut in the third quarter of this year to commemorate its departure.
Tim Kuniskis, Ram’s CEO, remarked, “The introduction of the Ram 1500 TRX marked a pivotal shift in the realm of off-road performance trucks, leaving an enduring legacy that will reverberate for years to come. While this chapter of Ram’s high-performance trucks is drawing to a close, it’s far from the end of the TRX story. While more details will follow in due course, we’re thrilled to provide our devoted performance enthusiasts with the exceptional TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8 – Final Edition.”
What sets the Final Edition apart? Adorned in a choice of 8 distinctive exterior hues, including three novel and exclusive shades (Delmonico Red, Night Edge Blue, and Harvest Sunrise), Ram intends to give the mighty supercharged TRX a fitting send-off with a touch of panache.
The forthcoming 2024 Ram 1500 TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8 – Final Edition will feature the following exclusive attributes:
- Satin Titanium Bead-Lock Capable Wheels
- Satin Titanium 6.2-liter Supercharged Hood Badge
- Satin Titanium “TRX” Bedside Decal

Under the hood, the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8 – Final Edition retains its formidable power, boasting 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque from the HELLCAT engine. This powerhouse propels the TRX to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds, reaching a top speed of 118 mph and conquering the quarter-mile sprint in 12.9 seconds at 108 mph.
While Kuniskis aptly stated that this isn’t the end for the TRX, those yearning for a HELLCAT-powered marvel should seize this opportunity, as sources close to 5thGenRams.com suggest that Ram will continue to offer the TRX in 2025, albeit equipped with the twin-turbocharged Hurricane6 inline-six engine.
The 2024 Ram 1500 TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8 – Final Edition bears a substantial price tag, starting at $117,625 in the U.S., with an additional $1,995 for destination charges. Canadian pricing remains pending, awaiting announcement.
