Launch Control is standard with the 2021 Ram TRX. Launch Control manages tire slip while launching the vehicle to give the driver consistent straight-line acceleration. Wheel speed sensors watch for driveline-damaging wheel hop at launch and, in milliseconds, provide inputs to the powertrain control module to modify the engine torque to regain full grip.
The Ram TRX is also equipped with Jump Detection, which uses wheel speed and ride height sensors and accelerometers at each corner to identify when the vehicle is airborne and acts to prevent driveline-damaging power spikes. Acting in milliseconds, Jump Detection modifies engine speed and torque, gear selection, transfer case torque split, damping rates and other powertrain and suspension components through the landing to deliver optimum performance.
The 2021 RAM TRX offers 8 driving modes that give it a Jekyll and Hyde complex. With 8 drive modes plus valet, the TRX adapts at your command with performance-tuned drive modes for on- and off-road excursions. Five on-road modes include Auto, Sport, Tow, Snow and Custom while the three dynamic off-road modes include Mud/Sand, Rock and Baja. The Ram TRX also features a Custom mode that allows the driver to personalize the vehicle’s performance with a selectable driving experience, offering a multitude of vehicle system combinations. There’s also a Valet Mode that significantly reduces performance functions.
