Who will be the winner when the Ram TRX takes part in the drag race with the 2022 Rivian R1T?
The Ram TRX has a 702 hp, Hemi-powered, supercharged V8 engine under the hood. But, as an EV pickup, the Rivian R1T has “nothing” under the hood! Yes, you have a large cargo space under the Rivian hood.
But wait, 4 Rivian motors are hidden under the skateboard chassis. Of course, they do have power. The R1T has 835 hp and over 900 Nm of torque.
The TRX’s Rm is around 6300 pounds for weight comparison, and the Rivian R1T’s is 7000 pounds. So, is the difference in weight very influential in drag racing? Apart from the drivers, of course!
The result was that the Rivian R1T beat the Ram TRX in the drag race. But is this fair enough because the R1T is a fully electric truck with over 800 hp and instant torque against more traditional trucks, in this case, the Ram TRX? What do you think?
