A new TRX is coming to town, and it’s more exclusive than ever before. The Ram 1500 TRX has always been a rare truck because of its price and Hellcat engine. Now, its newest edition is in extremely short supply. The new 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition is limited to only 875 units in America.
The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition will only be experienced by a lucky few consumers
The Ram 1500 TRX and Ford F-150 Raptor are a new breed of truck. American companies Ford and Ram have competed to produce the toughest, fastest truck possible for the last few years. The Ram 1500 has over 250 more horses than the Ford F-150 Raptor. The Raptor R’s Predator V8 powertrain is the only truck powertrain fast enough to compete.
Ram 1500 TRX models sell out quickly despite their hefty price tags. The new Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition is one of the most expensive TRX models ever produced. In even more shocking news, less than 1,000 of the special edition TRXs will walk the Earth in America.
According to Road Show by CNET, only 875 lucky buyers will get the chance to own the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition in the United States. The TRX Ignition Edition starts at a whopping $93,280. The real question is, what makes this TRX so darn expensive?

The Hellcat-powered truck has always been pricey, but the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition could cost consumers almost 100 grand. Ram 1500 TRX models usually start at around $70,325. So what gives? Why is the Ignition Edition tacking on over $23,000 to a truck that was already expensive?
The new Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition is for the select few lucky buyers that can afford to splurge on a $93,000 truck. In exchange for one of the heftiest price tags in the truck vehicle class, Ram has thrown in some goodies for TRX Ignition Edition owners to enjoy.
The Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition features its trim-exclusive bright orange color. Its interior includes orange contrast stitching. It uses black 18-inch wheels. The Ignition Edition includes a spray-in bedliner, panoramic sunroof, bed step, cargo tie-downs, and an LED brake light that is mounted on the cab.
The interior features copper carbon fiber accents, an orange center console badge, and a seat back logo that displays “TRX”. Even the steering wheel includes orange stitching. It also features a Head-up display and driver screen that proudly displays “TRX” in…you guessed it, orange.
Is the Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition worth buying?
Any Hellcat-powered truck is worth buying if you can afford it. The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition is unique in the sense that it takes the already-refined TRX and attempts to add even more class and styling to it. Do you need an all-orange TRX? Probably not.
The Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition is reserved for the select few 875 consumers that want a TRX trim that’s even more over-the-top than usual. Apparently, even TRXs can benefit from a little sprucing up.
