Ram 1500 TRX Easter Egg Shows Raptor In The Jaws Of A T-Rex

It’s no secret that the Ram 1500 TRX wants the Ford F-150 Raptor to go extinct, but the company has made that abundantly clear with an Easter egg.

In a video posted to Instagram and noticed by Car & Driver, someone removes the airbox cover on the TRX and reveals a massive Easter egg which recalls the ending of Jurassic Park. As you can see, it shows a dying Velociraptor in the jaws of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

It’s a hilarious addition which pokes fun at Ford, but it’s not the only one. Even before the Ram 1500 TRX was unveiled, another Easter egg surfaced showing the center console has an image of a T-Rex chasing a Raptor and preparing to eat it.

The jokes, of course, are a reference to the F-150 Raptor which has a twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 engine with 450 hp (336 kW / 456 PS) and 510 lb-ft (691 Nm) of torque. That’s in comparison to the TRX’s supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that develops 702 hp (523 kW / 712 PS) and 650 lb-ft (880 Nm) of torque.

Thanks to the massive output, the Ram can rocket from 0-60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds and run the quarter mile in 12.9 seconds at 108 mph (174 km/h). The full-size truck can also hit a top speed of 118 mph (190 km/h).

However, Ford isn’t going to sit idly by and let Ram have all the fun. Rumors have suggested the next-generation F-150 Raptor will be equipped with a detuned version of the supercharged 5.2-liter V8 that powers the Shelby Mustang GT500. It’s expected to develop at least 725 hp (541 kW / 735 PS), which would best even the TRX.
