The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX pickup is the fastest, most powerful, and agile truck currently manufactured in the world. The first 2021 Ram 1500 with the VIN 001 rolled off the assembly line with an immense 702 horsepower and ended up being auctioned at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale in Arizona. Ram only produced 702 units of the limited 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Editions, and all sold out in under three hours. So, what would the first Ram cost among those? While there are plenty of new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX pickups available today, there can only be one official owner of the first one ever made. 

Breaking Down the Rarity of the First-Ever Ram 1500 TRX Rebel

All 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Launch Edition trims come with all of the innovative technology available and perks of a top-level truck. Let’s take a look at what enthusiasts were willing to pay to become part of Ram’s long history.        

“When Ram 1500 TRX VIN 001 rolled off the assembly line, it instantly became an incredibly exciting one-of-a-kind collectible truck, and that was reflected by the winning bid. More importantly, we’re thrilled that the first Ram 1500 TRX raised significant funds that will go directly to the United Way for Southeast Michigan’s 2-1-1 helpline to provide services to veterans and their families. Ram continues to honor all those who serve or have served in the United States armed forces with distinction through our ‘Built to Serve’ editions. For Ram truck owners, whether military or civilian, ‘Built to Serve’ is a maxim that they can be proud to stand behind. This auction is another way we can honor our veterans by supporting them when they come home.” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram Brand Chief Executive Officer – Stellantis

First-Ever TRX Sold For An Amazing Cause

 Ram is more than an automaker; the pickup maker donates to different charities from disaster relief to blood drives and continues to provide a helping hand as often as it can. The honor of owning a Ram with the VIN reading “001” is quite impressive, but the price may be the same as a house in more than half the country. The Barrett Jackson Auction company sold the first 2021 Ram TRX Launch edition for a charity in collaboration with Ram and Mopar. The total price totaled a mega $410,000, and all of the proceeds will go to the United Way of Southeastern Michigan’s 2-1-1 helpline. The charity keeps its focus on helping veterans who have served our country, providing various tasks and outreach programs for both veterans and families.
