Car and Driver: Rebelling, Mopar Style: The Limited-Edition Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel


Recommended Posts



Mopar has introduced a limited-edition version of an existing Didgee or Chrysler vehicle on an annual basis since 2010—until now. After six years of modifying cars, though, the crew at Mopar is putting their unique touch on a truck: the Ram Rebel. And you’ll be able to buy one.


Officially known as the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel, the truck will be limited to 500 units and be offered in one of two colors, those being black or a two-tone red with black combo. In order to distinguish itself from the run-of-the-mill Ram Rebel, the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel adds a matte-black graphic to the truck’s aluminum hood, bigger flares on its wheel arches, and a blue and black stripe that starts at the front fenders and makes its way across the tailgate. An all-black front bumper and black wheels replace the silver-trim on the regular Rebel. Inside, stainless steel door guards and a serialized glovebox badge are the only noticeable changes.




Unfortunately, the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel still lacks the performance to properly compete with the forthcoming Ford F-150 Raptor, as there have been no changes made to the truck’s 5.7-liter V-8 engine, which continues to produce 395 horsepower. Along with the big V-8, the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel also includes optional Rebel features like four-wheel drive, front skid plates to safeguard vital components, side steps, a spray-in bedliner, and a tonneau cover.


All told, the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel costs $52,460, or $2750 more than a similarly-equipped Rebel—not a huge amount of extra cost for the various baubles. If the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel’s looks and limited production appeals to your tastes, then look for the truck to make its way to select Ram dealerships in the U.S. and Canada this summer.
