High-powered off-roaders are big business these days, and Stellantis is particularly interested in the segment with offerings like the Ram TRX and Jeep Wrangler 392. The Fast Lane Truck is taking this pair, and the natural thing to do is hang out with them.
The animators spend the first part of the video going back and forth on the attributes of the vehicle. Most notably, the Wrangler 392 has a power opening roof. The TRX has an active suspension system and rides on 35-inch tires.
The TRX is equipped with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 developing 702 horsepower (524 kilometers) and 650 pound-feet (881 Newton-meters) that goes through an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Wrangler 392 is equipped with a naturally aspirated 6.4-liter V8 developing 470 hp (351 kW) and 470 lb-ft (637 Nm) which also goes through an eight-speed automatic transmission.
In the first race, the TRX seems to be starting a bit early. It doesn’t matter, however, as the pickup is much faster than the Jeep, and the Wrangler can’t do anything to keep up.
For the second run, the TRX pilot waits for Wrangler 392 to launch before starting. The result is a much closer race. The Ram always wins, but only by a nose.
Despite being the loser in these races, the Wrangler 392 is still blazingly fast. The Fast Lane truck registers at high altitudes, and the naturally aspirated engine still pushes the SUV to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in 5.48 seconds. At sea level, it can hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and cover the quarter mile in 13 seconds, according to the company.
Official specs say the TRX also hits 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and covers the 12.9 second quarter mile. However, it looks a lot faster in this video. The high altitude could give the supercharged V8 an edge in these races.
