RAM 1500 TRX and ‘RAMS’ the movie

I’ve been a fan of the RAM range of vehicles for many years and hearing that the new RAM 1500 TRX was about to arrive in Australia, I went online to find out more about it.

I knew it had the big 6.2-litre supercharged Hellcat V8 motor, making it the most powerful production pick-up truck anywhere. It can get from 0-100km/h in 4.5 seconds and has the angry price of well above Aus$200,000 delivered. It comes with a factory-backed warranty as it’s converted to a right-hand drive by Walkinshaw Automotive Group, but it was some of the other features that I was interested in, so I went online to find some reviews.

This video review from Sam Charlworth at carsales.com.au gives a great insight into what makes the RAM1500 TRX a very special pickup.

To be honest, as impressive as the RAM 1500 TRX is, considering its price, recommended 12,000 km services and expected annual fuel bill, I reckon the RAM 1500 Laramie with some extra money spent on suspension upgrade and wheels etc would be better value for money.

Getting away from cars for a moment, whilst I was online looking into the RAM 1500 TRX, I stumbled over a great Australian movie that was released in 2020 titled ‘RAMS’.

It stars Sam Neill, Michael Caton, Miranda Richardson, and Asher Keddie, is directed by Jeremy Sims, and has nothing to do with cars other than a couple of old Hilux utes!

Shot in Western Australia, it’s based around two estranged brothers who raise separate flocks of sheep from their family’s prized bloodline, but unfortunately, one of the brothers’ prized rams is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, so to contain an outbreak, authorities order all the sheep in the area to be destroyed.

It’s a feel-good comedy-drama that follows the challenges of the brothers who ultimately must (begrudgingly) work together to save their flock and, in the process, their small community.

It’s well worth a look on Netflix but to entice you, here’s the ‘RAMS ‘trailer
