Dodge / Ram
The first Mopar truck has just been launched, and there will be just five hundred of them.
The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel starts with the Ram 1500 4x4 Rebel Crew Cab, built at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant near Detroit. Buyers can get either flame red with black, or just plain black. Mopar and Ram created the new pickup by using Mopar Custom Shop options.
The Mopar ’16 includes an aluminum, dual-bezel hood with a matte-black hood graphic, off-road wheel flares, and a Mopar-blue-and-black graphic stripe on both sides and the tailgate. The normal billet-silver front bumper skid plate was swapped out for a black one, and 17” satin black wheels were added to tie in with the blacked-out front. Inside, buyers get a serialized Mopar ’16 glove box badge and stainless-steel door sill guards; the front guards are embossed with the Ram logo.
Functionally, an extra skid plate was added for the power steering box.
The Ram Rebels chosen by Mopar have the 5.7-liter HEMI® engine with an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, a 4x4 transfer case, front suspension skid plates, black tubular side steps, a spray-on bedliner, and a tri-fold Ram-logo tonneau cover.
As with previous Mopar vehicles, the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel has an owner’s kit with Mopar ’16 merchandise, a brochure, and a metal birth certificate that highlights truck specifications, date of manufacture, and the proprietary number. The kit is in a case, packaged in a Ram-branded tool bag.

The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel will be sold in both the U.S. and Canada, with a list price in the US starting at $52,460. Buyers can find numerous Mopar options for it at dealerships, including a cold air intake and cat-back exhaust system. It is due to show up in dealerships this summer.
Past Mopar cars were the ’10 Dodge Challenger, ’11 Charger, ’12 Chrysler 300, ’13 Dart, ’14 Challenger, and ’15 Charger R/T.
The suspension dimensions change based on the air suspension mode (there is also a Park mode).
