The Ram TRX threw down the gauntlet more than a year ago on a quest to become the top-dog off-road super-truck in the land. Now, we have the new 3rd-generation Ford F-150 Raptor. Especially this latest Raptor that is riding on 37-inch tires from the factory. Does the newest Raptor take back the crown? Let’s see how these two compare at 0-60 mph, towing acceleration, exhaust sound level, off-road performance in the snow, and how they compare on utility and technology. This is the big game match-up we have been waiting for.
Ford F-150 Raptor vs Ram TRX
Indeed, the Ram is packing a powerful 6.2L supercharged V8 engine with 702 horsepower. The Ram has a wide-body stance, long-travel suspension, and 35-inch off-road tires. The Ford Raptor invented this factory off-road truck formula more than a decade ago. The latest F-150 Raptor uses a high-output 3.5L twin-turbo V6 and redesigned exhaust system with valves that can vary the sound.
Just by looking at the picture above, you can tell that Raptor 37 has a better approach angle. In fact, this Ford pickup truck has a class-leading 13.1 inches of ground clearance. The larger tires help with this, but these tires may also slow it down.
