The Ram 1500 TRX is, already, an assault on the senses. No other production truck has over 700 horsepower through a supercharged V8, like it does. So much output gives this 3+ ton truck the velocity of a Dodge Challenger Scat Pack, accelerating from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds. It can also tow 1.5 times its bodyweight. And has an interior larger than some AirBnB listings. It’s a truck. It’s a muscle car. It’s an apartment. All in one. Sensory. Assault.

So, what does one do with a truck this bonkers and crazy? Make it even crazier. From a visual standpoint, anyway. At least, for now. Say hello to the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition, and it’s here just in time to siege the local pumpkin patch.

Ram TRX Ignition Edition Price

The 2022 Ram 1500 TRX Ignition Edition MSRP starts at $91,585 USD, plus another $1,695 destination and will be on sale by the fourth quarter of 2021. That’s over $21,000 more than the base Ram TRX, in case you were wondering. But it’s right in line with what Ram was asking for the TRX Launch Edition, which was limited to just 702 units and sold out in 3 hours.

We wouldn’t bet against people turning away from sticker shock, even as the truck looks so electrifying.

Muscle Cars & Trucks was founded by Manoli Katakis - an automotive media veteran that has been covering the latest car news since 2009. His journalism has uncovered dozens of major product changes, updates, plans, and cancellations long before automakers were ready to make things official.

Some highlights over the years of his reporting include the uncovering of the Zora trademark before anybody else reported on the coming of a mid-engine Corvette, as well as the dead-accurate reporting of the coming of the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2, two years before it hit the market, and even before the debut of the concept vehicle. This type of reporting has immediately continued here, with reports of the original seventh-generation Camaro plans being shelved, as well as what's in store for the Chevrolet Silverado.

Some of his work can be found on massive automotive media outlets, such as Motor1. He also has been a guest on the 910AM Radio Station with Detroit News auto critic Henry Payne, as well as the enthusiast-oriented Camaro Show podcast.

Over the years, Manoli has interviewed various automotive industry titans, leaders, and people that make things happen otherwise. These include figureheads such as GM CEO Mary Barra, GM President Mark Reuss, automotive aftermarket icon Ken Lingenfelter, Dodge firebrand Tim Kuniskis, along with various chief engineers of vehicles such as the Ford F-150 & Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro & Corvette, and many more.

At MC&T, Manoli is taking his journalism expertise, deeply planted sources, driving abilities, and automotive industry knowledge to new levels, covering more vehicles and brands than ever before. This is the place where you will continue to read groundbreaking stories about American performance vehicles, pickup trucks, and sport utility vehicles.

Fun facts: he also once beat Corvette Racing driver Tommy Milner in an autocross with a Chevrolet Bolt EV. The biggest vehicle he’s ever driven is a John Deere mining truck. Besides a go-kart, the smallest vehicle he’s driven has been a Hyundai i10. He’s also spent time in the cockpit of various American performance vehicle icons, including the fifth-generation Chevrolet Camaro Z/28, Dodge Challenger Demon, and Ford Mustang GT350R. He has reviewed dozens of trucks, SUVs, and performance vehicles over the years.

One of his favorite new vehicles on the market today happens to be the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 Bison. He is also a card carrying member of the Sports Car Club of America, and regularly participates in Detroit Region autocross events.
