The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor offers about available 1.3 inches more ground clearance than the rival TRX thanks to a set of optional 37-in tires. The Raptor also offers better approach, departure, and breakover angles measuring in at 33.1 degrees, 24.9 degrees, and 24.4 degrees, respectively. The Raptor also holds the advantage in suspension travel, boasting 14 inches of front axle travel and 15 inches of rear axle travel.
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has the advantage of power on its side. Borrowed from Dodge’s Hellcat® muscle cars, the supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI® V8 engine rewards the Ram TRX with 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. The half-ton Hellcat® also has a top speed of 118 mph and surges to 60 mph from a dead stop in just 4.5 seconds. Inside, the TRX’s cabin uses the same refined materials, sound insulation, and available technology you would expect from any other truck wearing the Ram logo.
