Cadillac Escalade V vs RAM TRX // Drag and Roll Race Comparison!
Sometimes, as automotive performance enthusiasts, it can sometimes feel like we get put in a corner when automakers are deciding what to produce. After all, with the cancellation of many of the top billing nameplates in the performance community, one might question the future of the performance community altogether.
However, there are certain recent models out there lurking around that bring us back to reality, reminding us that performance is still something that automakers are willing to invest in, even with some rides that are only going to cater to a niche following.
For example, performance truck at enthusiasts can be incredibly happy knowing that multiple brands have been paying attention to their needs. Just a couple of years ago, the market would be introduced to the Ram TRX, a 702 hp pick up truck that makes the most of Dodge’s Hellcat architecture.
In the General Motors camp, while their offering of a performance SUV might not be as in-your-face as a TRX, they have taken to the performance luxury category to offer up the likes of the Cadillac Escalade-V. It might be a heavyweight but the truck offers up 682 horsepower to really get the party started and be able to haul the family and pick up groceries all at the same time.
This time, the crew ever a Hennessey Performance takes the liberty of putting both of these heavyweights on the same stretch of blacktop. Going head to head, for your viewing pleasure, we watch as some of the most powerful trucks on the market these days take shots at one another to see who might reign supreme. Of course, with the horsepower advantage in the camp of the TRX, it might look better initially but somehow the Escalade-V shaves off over 200 lbs compared to its opponent so you never know what might happen!
