The 2024 Ram 1500 TRX Final Edition marks the end of the road for one of the most powerful trucks ever produced and sold in America. It will be discontinued by the end of this year.


The automotive industry’s transition towards electrification is happening at a more rapid pace than we realize, systematically relegating all our favorite gas-guzzlers to history books. The latest to fall prey to the ever-tightening emission norms is the Ram 1500 TRX, which is soon going to go extinct like the prehistoric monster it was named after. Ram has announced that the production of the 702-hp off-road pickup truck is going to end before we enter 2024. As a final goodbye, the American manufacturer has introduced a new Final Edition which is designed to offer patrons one last chance to “own a piece of automotive history.”


The 2024 Ram 1500 TRX Final Edition will be available in eight exterior colors, which include a trio of bespoke hues called Delmonico Red, Night Edge Blue, and Harvest Sunrise. In addition to that, buyers will get the option to get their Final Edition fitted with Satin Titanium bead-lock capable wheels along with a matching 6.2-liter hood badge and bed decal. Inside the cabin, the commemorative version comes with a special splash screen, Patina contrast stitching, and seats with embroidered “TRX” logos on the backrests. Furthermore, the future owners will also find Triaxle-suede door panel inserts, a Satin Titanium TRX badge on the passenger side, and an “ultra-premium center console badge showcasing the build number.”

Similar to the standard Ram 1500 TRX, the Final Edition is powered by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 capable of churning out 702 hp and 650 lb.-ft of torque, making it one of the world’s most powerful pickup trucks. The fire-breathing truck can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, complete the quarter mile sprint 12.9 seconds at 108 mph, and hit a top speed of 118 mph. The Hemi V8 is coupled with a TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission that transfers power to all four wheels. Ram plans to build 4000 examples of the Final Edition which has a starting price of $117,625, excluding the $1,995 destination fee. While we are truly sad that the Ram 1500 TRX is going extinct, the company’s CEO has hinted that the story of the TRX is far from over.
