2024 will be the last year for the current supercharged V8-powered Ram 1500 TRX, although the company hinted at it’s eventual return
We have updated this story with live images of the RAM TRX Final Edition from its world debut at the Detroit Auto Show. See more from the event here.
The Ram 1500 TRX turned the truck segment on its head when it was introduced in 2020, but it’s being consigned to the history books as production is coming to an end this year. However, it’s not going quietly into the night as the company has introduced a new Final Edition.
Designed to offer customers one last chance to “own a piece of automotive history,” the 2024 Ram 1500 TRX Final Edition will be available in eight exterior colors including three unique ones called Delmonico Red, Night Edge Blue, and Harvest Sunrise. They’re joined by bead-lock capable wheels with a Satin Titanium finish.

Moving inside, customers will find a special splash screen, Patina contrast stitching, and seats with “TRX” logos on the back rests. They’re joined by 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.”
Other highlights include matte carbon fiber trim, a 19-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system, a digital rearview mirror, and a head-up display. Buyers will also find a host of driver assistance systems including adaptive cruise control as well as blind-spot and cross-path detection.
Like the standard model, the Final Edition has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 pumping out 702 hp (523 kW / 712 PS) and 650 lb-ft (880 Nm) of torque. That power is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission. It enables the truck to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds, hit a top speed of 118 mph (190 km/h), and run the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds at 108 mph (174 km/h).
The truck will be available in the fourth quarter and pricing starts at $117,625 before a $1,995 destination fee. That’s not cheap and the model won’t be particularly rare as Ram will build up to 4,000 units.
The Ram 1500 TRX Seems Primed For A Return
While the high-performance truck is going away, it likely won’t be gone for long as the company specified “production of [the] current-generation Ram 1500 TRX” is coming to an end.
Ram CEO Tim Kuniskis also noted, “This current chapter in Ram’s high-performance trucks is coming to a close, but it’s not the end of TRX’s story. While we’ll have more news to come at a later date, we’re proud to offer our loyal performance enthusiasts the very special TRX 6.2L Supercharged V8 – Final Edition.”
