Ram 1500 TRX Interior Design

The Ram 1500 contains an interior that is respectful of the exterior, with parts that offer functionality and an excellent aesthetic appeal. It includes premium materials, precise refinement, and cutting edge technology. The flat-bottomed steering wheel with integrated aluminum paddle shifters makes a bold statement while meeting most customers' needs. The interior has parts made of carbon fiber and seats that have suede on the bolsters and a colour accent behind the suede.

Ram 1500 Exterior Design

The exterior of the Ram 1500 features a grille with LED lighting and a performance hood. The performance includes launch control, which regulates engine RPM and monitors wheel slip feedback. The Dashboard monitors instantaneous horsepower reading, personal records, and steering angle measurements. The Dyno/engine measures the peak horsepower, torque and boosts pressure. The vehicle dynamics are useful when off-road to lock the rear axle, dial optimal steering angle and modulate the transfer case gearing.

The fenders and box-outers widen up to eight inches, convenient for a wide track. For optimal cooling and aerodynamics, the Ram has air-flow features that are strategically placed through heat extractors, functional scoops, vents, and air curtains.


The Ram 1500 comes with innovative technology and smart features to enhance the driving experience. The Harman Kardon premium sound system has 19 speakers paired with a 10-inch subwoofer to offer a 360-degree audio experience. It also comes with Uconnect smartphone integration that features an 8.4-inch or 12-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

The noise dampening technology gives you an exceptionally quiet cabin when driving thanks to the acoustic safety glass in the windshield, and active noise cancellation intelligently in the cabin. Automatic power side steps deploy when you unlock the truck, open the door, or park. This improves the aerodynamics and gives the truck a seamless appearance.


The Ram 1500 is engineered to outperform and tackle any challenge. It can tow up to 12,750 lb and a maximum payload of up to 2,300lb in terms of towing capacity. You also get more power with the eTorque mild hybrid system. It consists of a 48-volt battery pack and boosts low-speed acceleration by adding torque ideal for towing trailers.

The Ram 1500 has remarkable fuel efficiency due to features such as the wind-cheating hood, active air dam, and active air grille shutters. Additionally, the 3.6L Pentastar V6 engine has a revised thermal management system, variable valve timing with dual independent cam phasing, and the advanced eTorque mild hybrid system.


Safety features in the Ram 1500 include a blind-spot detection system, adaptive cruise control, a forward-collision warning system, and a 360-degree surround view system.
