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.
