One more truck, 2016 Dodge Ram Rebel. Ram has introduced an off-road prepared variant of the 1500 pickup called Rebel at the Detroit Motor Show. Considering that 2005, the (previously Dodge) Ram 2500 Power Wagon has actually offered off-road lovers something to salivate over. Now, Ram is offering the Power Wagon a new sibling.
Design – Interior and Exterior
The Rebel’s most distinctive styling element needs to be its extreme new grain-finish grille, which gets rid of Ram’s historical crosshair theme for an interlocking design that deliberately won’t be for everyone. There are lighting changes, too, with black-bucket headlamps including LED accents and also matching LED foglights. A non-functional twin-snorkel sporting activity hood, tonneau cover with stamped logo design, blacked-out taillamps as well as distinct badges are various other version telltales.
Flares swiped from the 2500 Power Wagon keep the wider rubber placed on Rebel-exclusive 17-inch wheels well– as well as legally– tucked in. Out back, twin exhausts put up into the bumper as well as out of damage’s means, but you could be also hectic looking at the billboard-sized RAM tailgate lettering to see.
Ram officials assure us the Rebel’s suspension has actually been rectified to deal with the greater trip height as well as much better off-road capability (mostly via the addition of Bilstein monotube shocks, a softer back anti-roll bar and also remodelled bounce bumpers). Steering and also stability control calibrations have actually additionally been altered.
Interior modifications are fairly thorough. Radar Red seatbacks as well as sides are encountered by vinyl surface areas showing an one-of-a-kind printed tread-pattern design (copying the previously mentioned Toyo rubber), along with the foreseeable appearance of comparison stitching and badging. Matching red anodized dash trim, distinct gauge encounters and also sturdy all-weather flooring mats with removable carpetings are among the various other Rebel-spec touches.
There’s a revised center console with boosted cupholders and an angled prop for tablet computers as well as mobile phones, a layout we anticipate will spread to various other Ram 1500s in short order.
