What is it like on the inside?
The TRX’s interior is dominated by the excellent upright 12-inch screen front and centre, borrowed from the higher-spec versions of the cooking Rams. But there are many new details of note, too. The Performance Pages from the Dodge SRT cars, which allow you to set up the vehicle’s drivetrain and chassis modes, have found their way into the Ram’s system, as has the launch control button.
There’s a configurable head-up display for the first time on any Ram, Jeep-alike cameras everywhere so you can see the extremities of the beast at key moments. And there’s a good old centre-mounted gearlever instead of the rotary gear slector. Ram decided that a manual change was a key part of the TRX experience, so redesigned the whole centre console to make it work. And it does.
The seats are suitably big, comfy and supportive, with heat and cooling on top-spec models. There are three levels of interior spec available. Standard is TR, which gets the cloth and vinyl treatment, TR1 and TR2 get a leather and suede smothered interior based on the Ram 1500 Limited, with the TR2 models getting optional red stitching and carbon fibre bits.
The most important feature of them all though is just how well screwed together the whole thing feels. Even after a day of extreme testing on road and trail, there wasn’t a squeak, rattle or groan from any part of it. Nice.
