Designed bolt by bolt to significantly outperform every other truck, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has been tested to handle the most punishing conditions with extreme durability. Using the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V8 engine, the Ram 1500 TRX has become the quickest, fastest, and most powerful mass-produced half-ton pickup truck in the world is rated at 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque, delivering new levels of performance with a 0 to 60 mph of 4.5 seconds, a quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds @ 108 mph, and a top speed of 118 mph.
While the Ram 1500 TRX checks all of the boxes in the off-road performance truck category, performance street truck enthusiasts have been wondering if Ram will ever answer their wishes with a high-performance Ram 1500 offering for them. While trucks like the Ram SRT-10, Ford F-150 SVT Lightning, and Silverado SS were the craze in the mid-2000s, it seems that Detroit’s Big-3 have abandoned the segment that was so competitive. But what might a modern-day Ram performance street truck look like?
Our friend and digital designer wb.artist20, thinks he has the answer for Ram and its fan base. Using the Ram SRT-10 Regular Cab as his inspiration, this modern take on the V10-powered muscle truck blends in Ram 1500 TRX design cues to create an incredible-looking design statement.
Unlike any fifth-generation Ram 1500 before, wb.artist20 shows us what a Regular Cab configuration might look like if it was to reach production. The wide-bodied fender flares and grille from the TRX are present. A Dodge Charger Widebody lower front fascia gives the front of the truck a more aggressive tone and blends well with the TRX front grille.
While an SRT-10 version seems like a bit of a stretch in today’s world, we would love to see something (if not a Quad Cab or Crew Cab) like this make it into production. It may be out of the current cards for the Ram brand, but they have pulled out surprised before.
