Here's a little more info on the new TRX engine, intake system, and frame upgrades.

Also worth mentioning Ram installed a regular gear shift over the knob, a trailer steering system and launch control. The most powerful, quickest truck on the market.

Must be a blast to drive, but at 1300# payload, not much of a tow vehicle.

Also the truck has full time 4 wheel drive. Not sure I care for that but it's probably because of the power.

Here's a video of the Ram TRX vs the Ford Raptor. Not a fan of the full time 4 wheel drive and the large plastic shroud that hides the Hemi engine otherwise it's a impressive truck for the gear heads that is advertised to pull a 4.5 sec 0-60.

Todays full time 4 wheel drive in not your grandfathers full time 4 wheel drive system. The system in our Ford Edge ST is pretty much transparent. Launching it is seamless for a 4500 pound SUV and only having a 2.7L V6 to turn 0-60 in 5.7 and 98/14.3 in the 1/4 mile is not bad. Oh yeah, it is a twin turbo with 335HP and 380 lb ft.

Car and Driver just drove it, 0-60 in 3.7, quarter mile in 12.3 @ 110 mph. That's one quick (but thirsty) truck.
