MULTI-FLEX TAILGATE WILL ADD EXTRA UTILITY
Apart from opening as a conventional tailgate, it can work as a standing desk or can be folded down to create a step in the bed as well. While it isn’t the barn-door style gate Ram has, it still essentially is a two-tailgate setup. It can be activated at a push of a button on the tailgate itself – one for each gate – or the key fob. It also has a primary gate and inner gate load stops.
It can withstand up to 375 pounds, same as the MultiPro tailgate.
It gets even better when combined with the Durabed that features better cargo space, LED lighting, a 120-volt outlet, and 12 fixed tie-downs.
The gauntlet has been thrown in the direction of the mighty Raptor
The arrival of the 2021 RAM TRX was more than just the debut of an incredible pickup truck; it was also a gauntlet being thrown in the direction of the current king of all trucks, the Ford F-150 Raptor.
There’s no secret that the RAM TRX’s purpose on this earth is to take down the mighty Raptor. Well, as far as motivations go, RAM included a rather hilarious easter egg on the TRX to remind its current and prospective owners exactly what it’s all about. Pop open the hood of the truck, lift up the airbox cover, and you’ll see it, plain as day.
Underneath the cover is an engraving of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, only it’s not just a T-Rex (or TRX, if you’re Fiat-Chrysler) that you’ll see; it’s a T-Rex that has, of all things, a raptor in its mouth. The subtlety, or lack thereof, shouldn’t be lost on anyone who owns a RAM TRX moving forward.
The F-150 hybrid humbled the Ram 1500 hybrid in a big way
Ford made us wait for the hybrid truck for a long time. It was in news earlier this year for offering a pathetic range, but Ford somehow managed to kill the news. When the company unveiled the 2021 F-150, the hybrid was showcased, and it showed a lot of potential. Although the truck is still some time away, we have finally gotten to see how it performs in the real world.
A video was uploaded on YouTube by “F150gen14” that shows the 2021 F-150 Hybrid take on the Ram 1500 Hemi E-torque in a towing drag race. If this video is a testament to the truck’s performance, then the hybrid mill will make for a large chunk of 2021 F-150 sales.
