For 2016, Ram Trucks and Mopar have joined forces to create the limited edition Mopar Ram Rebel, featuring a number of cosmetic and performance modifications.
The Mopar Ram Rebel is the first-ever, limited quantity pickup in FCA’s (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) history to be modified by their in-house tuning company. The truck rides on 17-in satin black alloy wheels, features a black front bumper skid plate, another skid plate to protect the power steering unit, and a unique serialized badge.
The truck starts life as a Ram 1500 4×4 Rebel Crew Cab before the special cosmetic and performance enhancing components. The Mopar version can easily be differentiated from the “standard” models because the Mopar truck is only available in two color schemes: Flame Red/Brilliant Black two-tone or Brilliant Black monotone.
“The new Ram Rebel has been a solid addition to the Ram lineup, providing customers with a truck that can deliver the added capability that their active lifestyles demand,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand, FCA Global. “The Mopar ’16 content illustrates how customers can easily personalize a Ram truck with factory backed accessories.”
Exterior modifications include aluminum trim, fender flares, dual bezel sport performance hood with matte black hood graphics, and Mopar blue-and-black accents on the side and tailgate.
On top of the accessories offered by Mopar, customers can also choose from additional parts at the dealership to further personalize their trucks. Those interested in getting their hands on a Mopar tuned Ram Rebel will need to hurry as only 500 will be produced. It starts at $53,655 and will be available at select FCA dealerships this summer.
