The Ram TRX packs an off-road punch with a 6.2-liter, 702-horsepower (523-kilowatt) Hellcat V8 engine and aggressive high-flying suspension. This is a great truck for running through the desert at high speed, so why not give it a special desert themed model? Guys, take a look at the 2022 Ram TRX Sandblast Edition.
For starters, yes it really is a look pack. You won’t find any engine, powertrain or suspension changes, but you will find a new exterior color called Mojave Sand on the outside. The light brown color is paired with a set of 18-inch black alloy wheels that are exclusive to the package. Exterior graphics are also package specific, and of course The truck wears the Sandblast Edition branding. A not-to-be-missed plaque nailed to the center console, reads the truck’s VIN, engine information, horsepower, boost pressure, and the American Flag.

You’ll find carbon fiber accents inside, TRX branding on the headrests, and other features available at the TRX Level 2 Equipment Group. A two-panel panoramic roof sits atop the truck, and at the rear, you get a spray bed lining with cargo straps, a bed ladder, and an LED third brake light.

The Ram is certainly no stranger to special edition pickup trucks, and usually, there’s a simple teaser campaign that leads to new announcements. Technically it did happen this time, but it wasn’t handled by Ram. Pro rally driver Ken Block is a tease, and according to Ram, he’s also a TRX owner. Maybe the F-150 Raptor pickup was bitten by the former Ford driver, but it’s unclear if this collaboration marks the start of the Block-Ram partnership or just a one-off.
However, people who wish to print the TRX Sandblast Edition will have to pay a minimum of $100,080. That’s the base price, including the insignificant $1,795 Ram destination fee. For those with the cash, the special truck goes on sale this summer.
