Ram has come up with a response to the Ford F-150 Raptor and it is the Ram Rebel 1500 but is not certainly competition for obscenely lifted, hardcore mega tired rigs that you find scanning the sand dunes and mostly flaunting at SEMA show dais.
The Ram Rebel in spite of the most obvious nameplate is not actually rebellious but generously cooperative. The Ram 1500 is ornamented with all the off-road trappings and has the same towing capabilities of regular 1500 with a comfortable cabin. What sets it apart and spur the buyers to go get it is the factory provided off-roading pieces that an itchy buyer would hunt for from outside sources normally.
The exterior upgrades include the gigantic brand name “RAM” on the grille which is blacked out and also on the tailgate. A power coated steel brush guars is located below the grille, and there is a snorkel twin aluminum hood above it. Wheel-flare design is lifted from Power Wagon, and the wheels are 17-inch aluminum covered with 285/70 Toyo Open Country A/T tires 33-inch tall.
The front engine layout four-wheel-drive Ram Rebel 1500 is a four-door truck with seating for five passengers. It is estimated to be about $45,000 if you want to buy. The engine with the displacement of 5.7 Liter Hemi V-8 is capable of generating 395 horses and 410 lb-ft of thrust and is driven by an 8-speed auto transmission with manual shifting model. The Ram can run the 0-60mph in 7.3 seconds and the quarter mile in 15.7 seconds. The truck can be driven at a maximum speed of 110mph, and the EPA-rated fuel economy figures read 15/21mpg for city and highway driving.
Well, when we drove it on a road filled with mud and muck the Rebel kept slipping and sliding but never went out of control, any takers?
