    TFL has had truck access already it would seems and the PR push is already on. They have a placeholder for 4pm on Youtube.

    “OMG! 2021 Ram 1500 TRX-HP, 0-60 MPH! Top Speed AND MORE”

    Nothing in that statement is what off-road trucks are about. 0-60? Doesn’t matter really. Faster, the same its all good. Plenty of fast trucks out there and they aren’t exactly uncommon. Top speed? Well since the Raps are limited, not a hard win there. The AND MORE I’m sure leads to something, but generally speaking I would say based upon that the off-road component may be lacking a bit. That encompasses the chassis and how the truck feels. Of they had lead with off-road stuff.

    We shall see soon.

    Final prediction.
    2 Engines. Hellcat at 750 HP. 5.7 at 450.
    0-60 3.8-4.0 with Hellcat
    Top speed 165
    Payload of 2000lbs
    Towing 10000lbs
    25 percent longer suspension travel with independent rear.
    37 inch tires standard. Optional beadlock.
    Live valve equivalent shocks.

    It will, on paper run circles around the Raptor. Still, not interested at all. Maybe that changes but I doubt it.

    See how close I am.

    I hope this finally pushes Ford back to a V8 option for the Raptor.

    Yep. And only 4.5 0-60.

    Truck is a heavy pig. Bet its 6k plus. Also, starts at 69. Thats poverty trim. They swung, and the G2 Raptor is still either slightly ahead or even at this point.

    That thing is sick. I love the raptor, but I'll definitely consider one of these in a few years. I wonder if they'll hold their value like the Raptor or if they'll depreciate like crazy like Ram's do. Certainly took almost every design cue from the Raptor though.

    That thing is overpriced AF and ugly to boot.

    How can you make a Raptor ugly? Ford: "Watch this." Grabs a 2015 F150 and turns it into a Raptor. RAM: "HOLD MY BEER."

    No offense to you flat sided Gen 2 guys. At least you got properly shaped wheel well openings.

    It will be interesting to see what the TRX will be capable of with only a tune.
