Ram Trucks might be readying a big reveal for its upcoming EV, but that doesn’t mean that the Stellantis truck branch has forgotten about its high-octane halo product. That’s the Ram 1500 TRX, for those that don’t know. All 702 supercharged horses of it. And every model year since its launch in 2020, the Ram TRX has seen a collectable special edition join its lineup. First it was the Launch Edition, then the Ignition Edition, then Sandblast Edition – each with their own unique color. And just before we ring in the new year, we bear witness to the 2023 Ram TRX Havoc Edition.

Exclusively in Baja Yellow, the Ram 1500 TRX Havoc Edition seems to take inspiration from the TRX Gold Shot Mopar Accessories Concept that was at the 2022 SEMA Show. The limited-edition trim level takes the TRX Level 2 Equipment Group, adds the Baja Yellow exterior and graphics, 18-inch all black beadlock-capable wheels, dual pane panoramic sunroof, spray-in bedliner, cargo tie-downs, bed step and an LED cab-mounted brake light. The interior features what Ram is calling Prowler Yellow accent stitching, an embroidered “TRX” seat back logo, unique carbon fiber accents, a leather and carbon fiber flat–bottom steering wheel, unique center console badge, Head-up Display and a driver’s screen that integrates the Ram TRX in Baja Yellow as a nice detail. Safety features include adaptive cruise control, Lane Keep Assist and pedestrian emergency braking.

Mechanically, the 2023 Ram TRX Havoc Edition remains unchanged, highlighted by the supercharged Hemi V8 engine, otherwise known as the Hellcat. As for the price, the 2023 Ram 1500 TRX Havoc Edition carries an MSRP of $104,550, plus $1,895 destination. It’s very much Ford F-150 Raptor R money, and it’s very much meant to compete with exactly that.

The new Ram TRX Havoc Edition will go on sale early in the first quarter of 2023.

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. Here is where you’ll also read insights and quotes from various automotive subject matter experts on the latest relevant products, as well as some of the latest official news from their manufacturers.

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.
