The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition is here, and it wants to hide in desert terrain!

Even though it’s just a new color, the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition looks completely different than other TRXs. It looks almost like a military version of the truck, which is a popular truck. Usually, Stellantis/FCA is ahead f the curve on Ram’s color pallet, but they missed the trend of earthen tones like sand – which other automakers are using. The Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition is meant to address that issue, and to answer the request of many owners.

“Our customers want to stand out from the crowd and the new Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition allows them to do just that, while offering the segment’s best combination of performance, capability and technology. We’re constantly expanding and exploring new ideas to meet the needs and fuel the imagination of our passionate customers and this is the latest example of how Ram trucks deliver features that will continue to win over more and more buyers.” 

Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand CEO – Stellantis.

Try not spitting out your coffee when you read this next part: the Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition’s MSRP starts at $98,285, plus $1,795 destination. Yep, about $100,000.00 – before unscrupulous dealership markups. I read through the whole Stellantis press release and found that it’s more than just a color, the Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition enhances the TRX Level 2 Equipment Group.
