Last Call Ram TRX signals 2024 as Hellcat’s final bow

It will apparently not be the final TRX, as Tim Kuniskis, head of Dodge and Ram, said or wrote, “This current chapter in Ram’s high-performance trucks is coming to a close, but it’s not the end of TRX’s story. While we’ll have more news to come at a later date, we’re proud to offer our loyal performance enthusiasts the very special TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8 – Final Edition.”

The TRX has a 702 horsepower engine with a top speed of 118 mph, 0-60 of 4.5 seconds, and quarter mile of 12.9 seconds at 108 mph. The Final Edition will be available in Delmonico Red, Night Edge Blue, Harvest Sunrise, and five other colors that are returning from 2023. We have included pictures of non-TRX models from 2023 in Delmonico Red and Harvest Sunrise below for reference. Today’s press release didn’t list the other five colors, but we know that the 2023 TRX (non-special edition) was offered in six exterior colors – Diamond Black monotone and five two-tone colors that have Diamond Black trim with either Hydro Blue, Flame Red, Bright White, Billet Silver or Granite Crystal upper portions. With a new blue, we are guessing that Hydro Blue will be replaced by Night Edge Blue, but we don’t know for certain.

Most sources now agree that the next full refresh of the Ram 1500 will start with the 2025 model year, when the Ram 1500 REV battery-electric pickup debuts. The twin-turbo Hurricane Six is widely believed to be the “modal” engine for this truck, coming in two power levels, one ahead of the 5.7 Hemi and the other ahead of the 6.4 Hemi; many think Ram will follow GM’s use of a four-cylinder as well, using a 4xe-style hybrid system. The Pentastar V6 may well continue as base power with the new 2025 Rams.
