2021 Ram 1500 TRX vs. Ford F-150 Raptor
Pickup trucks seem to have a bit of an attitude. Perhaps it’s because they’re purpose-built vehicles, capable of transporting people and engineered to haul cargo, tow trailers, and traverse mountains. So, no matter their size, “cute” is rarely, if ever, an appropriate descriptor.
This vehicular persona isn’t meant to offend. Trucks just happen to be there, minding their own business, and ready to get to work. Generally speaking, anyway. Because, on occasion, you’ll come across a pickup with so much attitude, it doesn’t know what to do with it. There is nothing else to be but bold.
We’re talking performance pickups, specifically the old standby Ford F-150 Raptor and the all-new Ram 1500 TRX. These born-in-Michigan power wheels don’t merely jump sand dunes, though that certainly is fun. No, these trucks can completely alter the landscape. And in case you weren’t sure which four-wheeler beast is best suited for conquering the toughest off-road trail, according to Ram, it’s the 1500 TRX.
Warning shots have been fired courtesy of two easy-to-spot Easter eggs in the Ram 1500 TRX— both of which display a Tyrannosaurus rex overwhelming a velociraptor. Subtle? Of course not. Full-size pickups are hardly known for being coy or, in this case, playing fair.
