Mopar to Offer a Limited Edition Ram Rebel for 2016 | Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram


Using its once-a-year upgrade on a Ram truck for the first time, Mopar is giving the 2016 Ram Rebel a total overhaul, and it is awesome.


Fiat Chrysler’s parts and accessories company has been upgrading one car model a year since 2010, creating Mopar edition Challengers, Chargers, and even a Mopar Edition Dodge Dart. Official named the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel, the truck features the addition of a number upgrades to the already award-winning edition of the 2016 Ram 1500.


Offered in either black or a two-tone red and black combination, the new truck adds a matte-black graphic to the hood, larger flares to the wheel arches and the iconic blue/black Mopar stripe that works it way around the exterior of the body. On the inside, the only changes that are noticeably different from the original are stainless steel door guards and serialized glove box badge.


Starting at a cool $52,460, the Mopar ’16 Rebel also offers additional features for that are more focused on performance but has included optional features from the standard Rebel, including front skid plates and a spray-in bed liner.



To the dismay of many Rebel enthusiasts, Mopar is only creating 500 units of their newest masterpiece. However, you may be able to take solace knowing that a similarly upgraded Rebel will cost you about $2,750 less than the Mopar edition if you can handle the lack of a few quirks specifically unique to the very limited edition version.


The Mopar ’16 Ram comes at a good time for Fiat Chrysler as they look to up the visibility of the Ram Rebel to compete with the Ford Raptor. Look for the Mopar ’16 Rebel to hit the market this summer and cross your fingers that you get to be one of the lucky few to get behind the wheel.

3 Ways To Summerize Your Vehicle



It is summer, which means it is time to get out on the roads for warm weather adventures. Whether it is a weekend getaway or multi-week road trip, your car will undoubtedly be the most important thing your take on your journey, and it is important to make sure that your vehicle is prepared for the demands of the summer heat.

At Ancira Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, we want everyone to have a safe summer exploring our town, our state or our nation, so we have made a list of 3 easy ways to get your car ready for summer. Check out our list below then get out on the road!

Keep Your Car Cool: Important during the entire year, your car’s cooling system is put to the test during the summer, combating the heat that your car produces as well as the rising air temperatures. Keeping your vehicle properly cooled helps with fuel efficiency, prevents corrosion as well as keeping your engine from being permanently damaged.

Keep Yourself Cool: While not necessary for the car to run, a well-maintained air conditioning system will keep you sane when the temperature reaches triple digits. When in sunlight with the windows rolled up, the interior temperature of the car can rise as much as 40 degrees above the outside temp, creating an unbearable and potentially deadly environment. Cooling your car to a reasonable temperature with a properly working system is already taxing on the A/C, and a system that is just getting by will inevitably fail. Beat the heat and keep cool with a properly working air conditioning system.


Check Your Brakes: You may hope that your trip does not take many stops to get to your destination; working breaks are critical for your safety as well as the safety of others when on the road. During the summer, hot weather can increase the temperature of your brake system, increasing the speed of brake wear. Worn brake pads can spell trouble, so be sure to have them checked before embarking on a big trip.

If your car needs some maintenance before hitting the open road, stop by and let us help. With a fantastic service department, we would be happy to make sure your car is up to par before you go. Call us at (888) 992-3393 or fill out our online form to schedule an appointment.
