This is difficult to imagine, but the 2024 Ram TRX Final Edition marks the end of the line for the beloved 6.2L supercharged Hellcat V8 supertruck. This is an official announcement by Ram Trucks. Here is all the information we have so far.
We followed this remarkable truck its entire way. TFLtruck was the very first Ram TRX customer in the world. Yep, we were fortunate enough to purchase the very first 2021 Ram TRX on December 31, 2020. While we paid the full sticker price, Ram and our local dealership (Johnson Auto Plaza) helped arrange for us to get the first TRX in Michigan (near the factory where it’s built).
Ram TRX (2021 – 2024)
The new supercharged 6.2L V8 Ram TRX was originally teased as the Ram Rebel TRX Concept truck in 2016 at the State Fair of Texas. Roman and I were there to bring you all the latest pickup truck news. Back in 2016, the concept was based on the Ram 1500 DS generation of the truck and promised 575 horsepower.
The production truck arrived as a 2021 model with a 702 horsepower Hellcat V8 that also produces 650 lb-ft of torque. This engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. While the concept truck had King shocks, the production TRX rides on Bilstein Blackhawk e2 shocks.
Now, TRX announces that the production of the 2024 Ram TRX will finish at the end of 2023. Yes, after just a few months – the Ram TRX will be no more. Ram is marking the occasion by producing 4,000 Final Edition trucks. The special Final Edition trucks will have unique badging with a serial number and all the options you can get. The starting price for the 2024 Ram TRX Final Edition is $119,620.
Here are some images of the 2024 Ram TRX Final Edition. It will be available in eight exterior colors, including three new and unique ones: Delmonico Red, Night Edge Blue, and Harvest Sunrise.
Ram Trucks CEO, Tim Kuniskis, says “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.“
What does this mean? It may mean that the Ram TRX will return at a later date for a new generation, but it will be powered by something other than the big 6.2L SC V8.
Here are some of our closing thoughts after owning the 2021 Ram TRX for a year and half and over 13,000 miles.
