Drag racing: old Toyota Tacoma vs. modern Ram TRX

Drag racing: old Toyota Tacoma vs. modern Ram TRX

January 24, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

The Fast Lane Truck team, from the YouTube channel of the same name, decided to find out if the old Toyota Tacoma pickup, which has currently covered a little more than 1 million km, can overcome the powerful 2020 Ram TRX pickup.

Is there a truck on the planet that can outrun the mighty Ram TRX in a straight line? This is the question that the guys from the YouTube channel The Fast Lane Truck decided to answer – they are preparing a new series on their channel, the task of which is to find a pickup truck that can still beat the high-performance TRX, and so far this goal has not been achieved.

Two Toyota Tacomas were chosen as competitors for the first series of this series, with one of them being the all-new 2021 TRD Pro.

With 278 horsepower from a 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Japanese pickup has absolutely no chance of beating the powerful Ram. After all, under the hood of the latter is a 702-horsepower Hellcat V8 engine.

Another example of Toyota Tacoma is an old car produced in 1997, which has already covered 1,046,073 km by now. This old Toyota can be called a beautiful “time capsule”, as its 3.4-liter V6 has a TRD supercharger located at the top. Both Toyota put all the power to the wheels through a flawless manual transmission.

Even with this supercharger, the vintage Tacoma beats the modern 2021 Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro quite easily. Yes, its low headroom with one cab makes it significantly lighter than the Ram truck, but still, the Japanese pickup has no chance against the 702-horsepower Ram TRX.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that Hennessey announced a 1200-horsepower version of the Ram TRX 6×6 pickup. Tuning studio Hennessey has released an image of its new project – a six-wheeled version of the high-performance Ram TRX. The car, which will receive the designation Mammoth 6×6, will boast even more impressive off-road capabilities, as well as a 1200-horsepower engine.
