2021 Ram 1500 TRX Easter Egg shows no mercy towards Ford Raptor


It seems that Ford and Ram are now locked into prehistoric name-games with their off-road pickups, but that is not the case. While 2021 1500 TRX T. Sounds like a play on the Rex, Ram decided on the name TRX because it was something that the automaker already had rights to – the name of the facility. However, it seems that the designers felt that there is some similarity between the name and the top predator if there is any evidence of a newly discovered Easter egg.

A video posted on the Catchmefoder Instagram account featured a unique Easter egg hidden under the hood of TRX – T. Rex’s image with a raptor spread between T. Rex’s sharp teeth. The torso of the animal is sold by dripping blood from under Rex’s chin. To find it, one has to not only open the hood, but also lift the plastic engine shroud. It is located just opposite the engine bay. There is a good chance some owners may never get it.

The Easter egg is just a bullet in the Raptor’s bow, as Ram aims to give the Raptor some hearty competition as Ford has been alone in space for many years. T. The Rex Easter Egg is definitely fitting. Ram’s main attraction is the engine – a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 borrowed from the brand’s Hellcat model. It produces 702 horsepower (523 kW) and 650 pound-feet (881 newton-meter) of torque. This is significantly higher than the Raptor, which uses a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that produces 450-hp (335 kW) and 510 lb-ft (691 Nm) of torque.

We look forward to seeing the TRX and Raptor in a scene of off-road tests and comparisons. The TRX is far more powerful, but also more expensive, starting at $ 69,995. The 2020 Raptor is $ 16,000 cheaper. However, this is subject to change. In a report surfaced the same day, Ram revealed TRX that Ford would introduce the next-gen Raptor with two engines, and one of them would be the supercharged V8. If this happens, expect the price tag and performance of the Raptor to be much higher than TRX.
