Production of the all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has begun at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant (SHAP) in Sterling Heights, Mich. The first vehicle – VIN No. 001 – is a Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition with exclusive Anvil exterior paint that will be auctioned for charity.
“We’re ecstatic to announce the start of production of the award-winning, all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX,” said Mike Koval Jr., Head of Ram Brand. “The Ram 1500 TRX bolsters the brand’s strong history of high-performance trucks while expanding Ram’s light-duty lineup with the segment’s best combination of performance, capability, luxury, and technology.
FCA invested nearly $1.5 billion to retool SHAP to build the next-generation Ram 1500 and to support the future growth of the Ram brand. The all-new truck officially launched in March 2018. More than 7,200 employees currently build the award-winning truck.
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is powered by a 6.2L supercharged HEMI V-8 engine that delivers top output for extended driving sessions without degradation in performance. The 1/2-ton pickup truck is rated at 702 horsepower, 650 lb.-ft. of torque, and delivers 0-60 miles per hour (mph) in 4.5 seconds.
Commemorating America's most powerful truck at 702 horsepower, the 2021 1500 TRX Launch Edition is limited to 702 units, which sold out in less than three hours.
The Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition is visually distinguished by its exclusive Anvil Gray paint, and inside, each truck features a special red and brushed-aluminum center console badge identifying it as a limited-edition Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition model. The Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition package is coupled with the TRX Level 2 Equipment Group, adding carbon fiber interior trim, color accent package, head-up display, beadlock-capable wheels, 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium sound system, dual-pane panoramic sunroof, Advanced Safety Group, and hood and bodyside graphics.
