2021 Ram TRX vs Ford Raptor

The performance truck segment offers some stiff competition, and for a few years now, the Ford Raptor has dominated, but with the release of the 2021 Ram TRX, that position has been threatened. Both these pickup trucks feature forced induction under the hood to create immense amounts of power. In addition, both trucks feature full-time four-wheel drive with 2-speed transfer cases and an electronic rear locking differential for sticky situations. Let's put these two in a side-by-side comparison and see how they stack up.

2021 Ram TRX Power & Handling

The Ram TRX boasts best-in-class horsepower and torque with an outstanding supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 that generates 702 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque. The twin-screw supercharger provides almost instantaneous torque, has a maximum speed of 14,600 rpm, and can regulate boost pressure up to an astounding 11.0 psi. The high-performance air induction system filters four times as much dirt and debris as the Ford Raptor while consuming up to 32.9 liters of air per minute. A robust cast-iron block restrains a forged-steel crankshaft with induction-hardened bearings. All are engineered to withstand firing pressures of 1,595 psi-the equivalent of 20,000 pounds of force. In addition, TRX is the first Ram truck to be equipped with Launch Control with Launch Assist, which regulates engine RPM and monitors wheel slip feedback to achieve the fastest possible acceleration rate.

2021 Ford Raptor Power & Handling

The Raptor comes equipped with a third-generation twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine delivering torque low in the rev range right where it counts. It features a state-of-the-art turbo and a 10.5:1 compression ratio delivering 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. It also features new high-power fans built onto the cooling system to ensure intense off-roading sessions never end too early. In addition, the five-link rear suspension features extra-long trailing arms to maintain better axle position on rough terrain, a Panhard rod, and 24-inch coil springs with more sophisticated engine management software mean the truck can send more torque to the rear wheels for starts off the line, faster acceleration, and better throttle responsiveness while simultaneously delivering comfort stability handling control and reaction.

2021 Ram TRX Features & Design

The 2021 TRX offers premium materials, uncommon refinement, and the latest technologies. With TRX-exclusive badges on the center console cover and glove box, there's no doubt you and your passengers will always remember the name. Ram gave the TRX a distinctive center-mounted gear shifter with a manual shifting mode. The first performance-focused steering wheel on a Ram Truck boasts integrated aluminum shift paddles, a flat-bottom shape, and available carbon fiber and Alcantara suede accents. With Ram's Performance Pages, you have access to a suite of customizable performance and off-road pages integrated within the digital cluster and a massive 12-inch touchscreen. The all-new HUD serves as your virtual cockpit, projecting an array of customizable information on the windshield.

2021 Ford Raptor Features & Design

The Raptor offers buyers many of the same standard features on the F-150, such as the fold-out center console that doubles as a sort of mini desk, and the fully customizable 12-inch digital gauge cluster comes as standard. However, the Raptor's seats are different, with bolstered sides. The lone option for the base Raptor is a metal-ish film finish for the appliqués, door spears, and upper glove box door. The Raptor offers power door locks with Flip Key and Integrated Key Transmitter Keyless Entry, Including Auto-Lock. There are a set of six auxiliary switches on the overhead console, along with four USB charging ports, Sync 4, a 360-degree view camera, and available over-the-air updates to keep software and maps as up-to-date as possible.
