Can a vehicle embody both life and death simultaneously? Ram Trucks Australia seems to think so with the release of the 1500 TRX Final Edition. This model, though replaced by the 1500 RHO, still carries the torch, offering limited copies to Australian enthusiasts.

Ram Trucks Australia offers only 130 units of the Ram 1500 TRX Final Edition, each adorned with exclusive exterior colors like Night Edge Blue, Harvest Sunrise, and Delmonico Red.

Featuring bead-lock capable wheels, a 6.2L badge on the hood, a TRX logo embroidered on the seatbacks, and other unique touches, this Final Edition bids farewell with style.

Under the hood, it houses the same 6.2L supercharged V8 Hellcat engine, propelling it to 100 kph (62 mph) in just four and a half seconds. But here’s the kicker: the price. Prepare yourself, as it’s a hefty AU$249,950 per unit, translating to $162,780 at the current exchange rate. Quite a leap from its US counterpart’s starting price of AU$183,640.

While the 1500 TRX may fade away, its legacy lives on in the new 1500 RHO. This challenger to the Ford F-150 Raptor boasts a 3.0L twin-turbo straight-six engine, delivering 540 hp and a sprint to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds, rivaling its predecessor’s speed. With a starting price of $69,995 plus destination charge, it offers enthusiasts a more accessible entry into the Ram Trucks world.
