Ram 1500 TRX vs Ford F-150 Raptor

Have you been looking around for a performance pickup truck that can give you that power and capability that you're so desperately looking for? Well, then you've come to the right place. At Campbell Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we want to make your search for your next truck as easy as possible. That's why we're comparing the Ram 1500 TRX and the Ford F-150 Raptor. The TRX is brand new to the automotive world, coming in to make sure that everyone knows just why Ram is continually named the best truck on the market. You'll find a powerful engine, and all of the features you need to handle off-roading abilities and performance needs. Meanwhile, the Raptor comes with a significantly weaker engine, and a few outdated technologies that might make you think twice. Keep reading down below to learn more!

2021 Ram 1500 TRX Power & Handling

The very first thing we want to do is show off everything that Ram has put into this amazing model. That's why we're starting with the most essential part, the engine that is underneath the hood. Here you will find a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine, that can output up to 650 pound-feet of torque and around 702 horsepower. These are huge numbers, and if you're familiar with the Dodge lineup, then the engine will look familiar. Paired up with this engine is an eight-speed automatic transmission, and four-wheel drive. This means that you will never have any issues when it comes to off-roading or poor driving conditions. You can't go wrong with the TRX.

2020 Ford F-150 Raptor Power & Handling

On the other side of things, with the Ford Raptor, there is also one standard engine. However, this engine is a significantly weaker 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost, which can only generate 510 pound-feet of torque and around 450 horsepower. These are pretty low numbers after you just spent time seeing how much was offered with the TRX. Paired with this engine is a ten-speed automatic transmission, along with standard four-wheel drive. The Raptor is off to a slow start.

2021 Ram 1500 TRX Features & Design

Now that you've seen what the TRX has to offer when it comes to an engine, it's time to focus on the standard and available features that you can get. You'll find features like a Dana 60 solid rear axle, Launch Control, an electronic locking differential, 35-inch all-terrain tires, Bilstein adaptive dampers with remote reservoirs, five underbody skid plates, a 2-inch suspension lift, and upgraded brakes. A few available features include a head-up display, RamBox cargo storage, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, reverse steering control, and a digital rearview mirror.

2020 Ford F-150 Raptor Features & Design

The Raptor has its own list of standard and available features for you to look at. Some of the standard features include integrated marker lights, BoxLink, an LED tailgate, daytime running lights, hood air extractors, running boards, front and rear tow hooks, and skid plates. A few of the available features include heated side mirrors, LED security approach lamps, auto-dimming side mirrors, windshield wiper de-icer, and a rear power sliding glass window with privacy tint.

Conclusion:

As you can tell by now, the Ram 1500 TRX absolutely steals the show. Not only does this beast come with all of the features you need, but you'll also be getting a standard engine that destroys what the Raptor offers. We hope you'll stop by our dealership and check out the impressive TRX inventory that we have available for you to choose from.
