The brand-new Ford F-150 Raptor R promises to check all of the boxes in this comparison of the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R versus the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX created by The Brandon Ford Team.
Ford F-150 Raptor R Vs. Ram 1500 TRX
The Ram 1500 TRX added yet another contender to the performance pickup class — and Fords performance team answered in spades with the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R — the performance-focused variant of the 2022 Ford F-150 Raptor.
The RAM 1500 TRX makes more power than Fords Raptor R, pumping out 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque from its supercharged 6.2-liter V8. Fords Raptor R gets up to speed as easily as the Rams 1500 TRX, despite packing about 100 more pounds.
The Raptor R offers 700 horsepower and 640 pound-feet of torque, whereas 2023s Ram 1500 TRX gives you 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. If you are looking for massive off-roading truck aggressiveness, and are looking at these two amazing models, the Ford Raptor R is the better performer over the Ram TRX.
Heres our head-to-head comparison of how the Ram 1500 TRX and Ford Raptor R compare. The Ram 1500 TRXs reign as the most powerful pickup on the off-road has been brief thanks to the arrival of Fords all-new F-150 Raptor R. Due on sale this fall, Raptor R leapfrogs the existing Raptor by offering a supercharged V8 with nearly identical horsepower as TRX, while also throwing in some additional goodies of its own. \
The Ram TRX has been the defacto factory choice for anyone wanting a supercharged V8 desert truck, though for the last year, we knew that Ford was going to be making their own entry into the fray.
The 2023 F-150 Raptor R has finally been revealed, packing the most powerful V8 ever offered in a Ford pickup. Instead of using the 3.5-liter V6 with dual turbos, the new Raptor R with the V8 gets the supercharged V8.
Hooked up to a quick-shifting 10-speed automatic, the aluminum-bodied, 700-hp Raptor R should be capable of pulling zero-to-60-mph runs in the upper 3 seconds, probably a tenth or two quicker than a Ram 1500 TRX, and roughly one-and-a-half seconds quicker on the gas than the V6-powered Raptor.
Add the lighter platform to the equation, and the Ford F-150 Raptor R should be capable of achieving zero-to-60-mph runs in less than 4.0 seconds, down from the 4.5-second times of the Ram 1500 TRX. The 2023 F-150 Raptor R handles checks, too, riding on bigger tires, although Ford has done little different to the Raptors suspension than it did to the V6 model.
The 2023 F-150 Raptor R has one cross-town competitor, the Ram TRX – the pickup that debuted in 2020, displacing the Raptor as the high-performance, all-terrain Raptor.
