The 2021 Ram TRX vs Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport
To describe the new 2021 Ram TRX, one reaches for words like: rugged, off-roader, super-fast, and super-truck. While the Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport takes part in the TRX’s need for speed, make no mistake that these are in fact super-trucks. Since Shelby has laid their hands on this gorgeous blue F-150, they have left the owner with a massive supercharger and a whopping 770 horsepower from a 5.0 L V8.
The Ram TRX is no slouch for power either. It comes with a supercharged hellcat motor that slaps down 708 horsepower from its 6.2 L V8 and permanent four wheel drive. However it carries a significant amount more weight than the Super Snake Sport. To possibly make up for this, the TRX has launch control at its command – unlike its Shelby competitor. Will that make enough of a difference to overcome the weight and power advantage that the Super Snake Sport has over the Ram TRX? Watch and find out!
A Track Test? In the TRX?
The guys like to keep things fun and interesting. As an little extra surprise in this video, Thomas takes the Ram TRX around the Throttle House Test Track for a totally legitimate and fair hot lap. The race marshals saw no need to investigate and Thomas definitely followed the route exactly. In an off-road super-truck no less. Definitely.
