World Debut: 2015 Dodge Ram Rebel on Everyman Driver, Dave Erickson

Dodge Ram Rebel on Everyman Driver, Dave EricksonRam is giving the Power Wagon a new sibling. Unveiled at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel brings more attitude to the brand’s half-ton truck.

The Rebel gets an aggressive styling makeover, dominated by a blacked-out grille that eschews the brand’s traditional crosshair for something that looks more like a branding iron. The tougher front fascia also features a new, black powder-coated front bumper, ‘twin-snorkel’ hood, and blacked-out headlights. Other styling upgrades include black fender flares that shield 17-inch alloy wheels shod in Toyo Open Country A/T tires, a tailgate with “RAM” stamped into it, and a new black powder-coated rear bumper.

In comparison to the styling changes, mechanical upgrades are fairly limited. Ram beefed up the stock air suspension with specially-tuned Bilstein shocks, and raised the ride height 1.0 inch—a Ford F-150 Raptor rival it ain’t.

There are two engine options. The Pentastar V-6 produces 305 horsepower and 269 pound-feet of torque, while the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 produces 395 hp and 410 lb-ft. Both come with eight-speed automatics. Four-wheel drive is mandatory with the Pentastar, while the Hemi is offered with either four-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive.
