This is the first of several videos I’ll be doing about what I expect will be – in hindsight – the high water mark of American horsepower and audacity. The Ram TRX in all its bright blue supercharged glory!

Nice truck, and I look forward to the full review.
It improves slightly, but not nearly enough in my opinion, on my major complaint about modern pickups: that the body is jacked up beyond all relevance to increased ground clearance. Every inch of ground clearance means a 2″ increase in tire diameter, which oddly results in at least a 4″ increase in body height.
Since I first learned to drive in my grandfather’s 1964 Dodge Dart 2-door (slant six and typewriter transmission), I’ve been a Mopar fan.
The current FCA/whoever coalition are doing a great job of maintaining the muscle heritage in defiance of the anti-car anti-HP diktat. For that, I salute them.

Could this be why no production EV pickups exist yet, despite pickups being the best selling and most profitable of vehicles for years now?
A thousand extra pounds of batteries wreak havoc on wheels, tires, brakes and suspension. But in a low-slung car, the center of mass remains close to the ground.
Not so in a jacked pickup, where a half-ton of batteries over a foot off the ground could well make the beast as tippy as a 1998 Ford Explorer with a tire blowout, not to mention intruding on limited bed space.
Rivian is promising deliveries of its $75,000 R1T e-pickup by June 2021. So we’ll soon see whether that date’s real, and whether hard cornering leaves the sucker wheels-up in a ditch.
why cant we have nice big engines that roar anymore?
That thing is bad ass! Lucky you for getting to enjoy it for a few days.
