Mopar says that the F-150 is the “most powerful pickup truck in the world.” If you want to make it look better, you could add some bold graphics and high-contrast interior stitching.
- This is the message that the Ram 1500 TRX Gold Shot concept sends as a display for Mopar accessories at this year’s SEMA show.
- If the new looks aren’t enough, you can enjoy the two motorcycles that match each other in the bed.
- At SEMA, you can never have too much. This Ram 1500 TRX Gold Shot idea is a good example.
Mopar started with a 702-hp Ram 1500 TRX, which it called “the apex predator of the production-truck world” and “the quickest, fastest, and most powerful pickup truck in the world.” Then it got side-to-side TRX graphics in Satin Bitter Yellow and Satin Black, custom Vintage Bronze 18-by-9.5-inch Black Rhino Chamber wheels, and 37-inch BFGoodrich tires.
As is fitting for a Mopar car, the TRX Gold Shot concept is a truck-sized display for official parts. In the back, it has a retractable bed step and two black Mopar exhaust tips that are each 5 inches long. The RamBar accessory bar has two bright 14-inch LED concept lights from TYRI that can shine up to 4300 lumens on the stage. The bottom is protected by custom metal skid plates with laser-etched Mopar lettering in the front and back, and the side sills are protected by Mopar rock rails. The approach angle goes up by 2.3 degrees, to 32.5 degrees, because of the front skid plate.
The seats and materials of the cabin are not stock pieces from the Ram 1500 TRX production mode, but the console and dashboard are. The ensemble, which is black with yellow decorations and needlework in shades of yellow like Alaska Gold and Gold Spinneybeck, is stunning without being garish. The sports seats used perforated Alcantara leather and Capri leather.
The bed holds a pair of matching gold and black motorcycles to show off the Gold Shot’s adventurous spirit, and the interior has a vinyl floor from the Ram 1500 Tradesman to make it easier to clean.
Mopar is bringing 10 other concepts or modified vehicles, in addition to the TRX Gold Shot. This year, the Jeep CJ Surge and eight other custom Jeep vehicles, as well as the Ram 1500 Backcountry X concept, are all making their debuts at SEMA. From November 1 to 4, SEMA takes place at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
