Dana Inc. will be supplying its 60 AdvanTEK solid rear axle with Spicer PerformaTraK electronic locking differential to the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX pickup truck.
The new Dana 60 utilizes a 3.55 gear ratio and specialized technology to deliver increased torque and carrying capacity over Dana’s traditional offerings. The axle comes equipped with the Spicer PerformaTraK electronic locking differential, which can transfer rear axle torque to one wheel, ensuring that the wheels do not slip. The new axles will be assembled at Dana’s facility in Dry Ridge, Kentucky.
“As the demand for vehicles with high-performance, off-road capability continues to increase, Dana is developing solutions that are designed to deliver maximum performance and durability in the toughest of conditions,” said Bob Pyle, president of Dana Light Vehicle Drive Systems. “The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is an extremely capable on-and-off-road vehicle and we are proud to have been selected to provide our Dana 60 AdvanTEK axles to support its power and strength.”
In addition to the axles, Dana supplies cylinder head gaskets for the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.
