When it comes to conquering off-road terrains, the Ram 1500 TRX is undeniably an absolute beast. With its upgraded suspension, powerful V8 engine, and cutting-edge electronic features, it stands as one of the most capable machines for off-roading enthusiasts. However, another side to this powerhouse has piqued the curiosity of automotive enthusiasts—the Ram 1500 TRX’s performance on the highway.
AutoTopNL, a renowned YouTube channel based in Europe, is known for pushing the limits of performance vehicles on the famous Autobahn. They decided to test the top speed of the Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition, a beast that not only looks mean but also packs a punch under the hood with its supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® HELLCAT V8 engine, producing a jaw-dropping 702 horsepower and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.
The video begins with AutoTopNL showcasing Guerrilla exhaust pipes, allowing viewers to hear the beastly roar in different modes. The distinctive sound of the TRX echoes through the roads, indicating its unbridled power. As the truck sets off on an intercity drive, the driver demonstrates a few accelerations from a standstill, but the wet road conditions make it challenging for the TRX to achieve its factory-stated 0-60 mph time of 4.5 seconds.
The video’s main focus is to uncover the Ram 1500 TRX’s top speed. As the truck enters the unrestricted sections of the Autobahn, it’s time to see what this beast can truly achieve. The electronically governed maximum velocity of the TRX is revealed to be 118 mph (190 km/h). Weighing around 6,440 lbs. (2,920 kg), the TRX is one of the heaviest vehicles available on the market today. Despite its weight, the TRX manages to impressively reach its top speed, demonstrating its capabilities even on the Autobahn.
