Pickup trucks aren’t always about pulling and towing heavy loads, because the 1500 TRX shows you another side of such a powerful vehicle. The idea of ​​plunging into the same engine of the Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars is borderline insane, but there’s a market for this kind of pickup.

It might even involve taking part in a drag strip, and while it might seem out of place, it would certainly put off the minds of competing muscle cars. As we mentioned last year, the TRX has everything you would expect from such a truck: tough styling, fast acceleration and a loud exhaust note.

The Ford F-150 Raptor has been the reigning champion since it was introduced, but when the Ram TRX appeared, it shifted the goalposts.
