Ram 1500 Rebel Havoc Edition gets a coat of Baja Yellow
Around two years ago, Ram introduced the HEMI-powered 1500 Rebel to the Philippines. Aside from its imposing exterior and a high-tech yet rugged cabin, it also has special storage compartments on the bed called Rambox which is useful for storing items or can be used during tailgate parties.
It's available in a wide array of two-tone colors which include Hydro Blue Pearl, Flame Red, Bright White, Billet Silver Metallic, and Granite Crystal Metallic. But what if you prefer the full-size pickup truck in a bright shade of yellow?
Across the Pacific, Ram has just launched the 2023 1500 Rebel Havoc Edition, and it's painted in a special yellow hue. Available in extremely limited numbers, the Havoc Edition is finished in a unique Baja Yellow exterior finish that makes it stand out from the rest and is complemented by an off-road-focused cabin.
“Ram 1500 Rebel Havoc buyers will enjoy the newest addition to our light-duty lineup, which offers a distinctive combination of unique exterior appointments only seen on a Ram truck,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand CEO – Stellantis. “Ram 1500 continues to be the no-compromise benchmark for durability, technology, efficiency, performance, and convenience with features never before offered in a pickup.”
Beyond the yellow coat of paint, the brightly-colored pickup also comes with black accents. These can be seen on the bed's bumpers, side mirror caps, 18-inch alloy wheels, badges, and the Rebel graphics. While it may not be much, the appearance pack does give the Havoc Edition a discerning look over the regular 1500 Rebel.
With the Rebel Level 2 package fitted as standard, the Havoc Edition is equipped with the following amenities: a power-adjustable driver's seat, a 12-inch touchscreen with Ram's Uconnect system, satellite navigation, and Off-Road pages for monitoring various parameters when going off the beaten path. This allows drivers to check the ground clearance, and departure/approach angles. It also has Selec-Speed Control which serves as cruise control while going off-road.
Like the regular Rebel, the Havoc Edition is powered by a 5.7-liter HEMI V8. It makes 395 PS with 556 Nm of torque and is coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission with a 4WD system.
The 2023 Ram 1500 Rebel Havoc Edition will go on sale later this year around Q3. Since it will only be available in limited quantities, those who plan to get one here better let Ram Philippines know of their interest so they can get a unit before all examples are spoken for.
