If you have a $100,000 to spend on a pickup, here's one to put on your list. The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition. It's based on the TRX with the well-appointed Level 2 Equipment Group. In the looks department, it stands out from the Ram 1500 lineup with a unique Mojave paint and graphics package along with exclusive 18-inch all-black beadlock capable wheels - all straight from the factory. Ram doesn't stop there - equipping the Sandblast Edition with a dual pane panoramic sunroof, spray-in bedliner, cargo tie-downs, bed step and an LED cab-mounted brake light.
“Our customers want to stand out from the crowd and the new Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition allows them to do just that, while offering the segment’s best combination of performance, capability and technology,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand CEO – Stellantis. “We’re constantly expanding and exploring new ideas to meet the needs and fuel the imagination of our passionate customers, and this is the latest example of how Ram trucks deliver features that will continue to win over more and more buyers.”
The Sandblast Edition is powered of course by the TRX's 702-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged HEMI V-8 engine that delivers 650 pound-feet of torque.
Inside, you'll find Light Frost accent stitching, an embroidered “TRX” seat back logo, unique carbon fiber accents, a leather and carbon-fiber flat-bottom steering wheel. There's also a unique badge on the center console. Technology additions include a Head-up Display and a driver’s screen that features TRX in Mojave Sand. Safety features include adaptive cruise control, Lane Keep Assist and pedestrian emergency braking.
The new Ram 1500 TRX Sandblast Edition starts from $98,285, plus $1,795 destination, pushing it to just north of $100,000. Models go on sale this summer.
