The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel will feature a limited production of just 500 vehicles (100 for the Canadian market).

The Ram Truck and Mopar brands has announced the introduction of the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel, the most recent limited-edition vehicle created using a unique selection of performance parts and accessories from the service, parts and customer-care brand of FCA US LLC.

The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel will feature a limited production of just 500 vehicles (100 for the Canadian market), upgraded with Mopar Custom Shop options. Additional parts and accessories are available at the dealership for even further customization.

“We are excited to team up with our friends at the Ram Truck brand to offer the first limited-edition Mopar vehicle for full-size truck enthusiasts,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA – Global. “The already formidable Ram 1500 Rebel is a perfect canvas for unique Mopar accessories and performance parts developed to reinforce the rugged personality of the Rebel.”

The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel marks the first limited-edition Mopar-modified vehicle designed for the truck segment. It follows the Mopar ’10 Dodge Challenger, Mopar ’11 Charger, Mopar ’12 Chrysler 300, Mopar ’13 Dart, Mopar ’14 Challenger and Mopar ’15 Charger R/T as another example of how customers can have Mopar flair and performance even before taking the keys.

The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel starts with the Ram 1500 4x4 Rebel Crew Cab, built at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Warren, Michigan. Two colour options will be available: Flame Red/Brilliant Black two-tone or Brilliant Black monotone.

“The new Ram Rebel has been a solid addition to the Ram lineup, providing customers with a truck that can deliver the added capability that their active lifestyles demand,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand, FCA – Global. “The Mopar '16 content illustrates how customers can easily personalize a Ram truck with factory backed accessories."

A Mopar Custom Shop package created for the Mopar ’16 enhances the already unique exterior design cues of the Rebel. The package includes an aluminum, dual bezel sport performance hood embellished with a matte-black hood graphic. Off-road wheel flares bulge out to add both style and substance. A special Mopar blue-and-black graphic stripe accents both sides of the Mopar ’16, as well as the tailgate.

The package also features a skid plate to guard the power steering box and substitutes a black front bumper skid plate for the standard billet silver colour. Seventeen-inch satin black wheels tie-in with the blacked-out front for added continuity and visual appeal. Rounding out Custom Shop content is a serialized Mopar ’16 glove box badge and a set of stainless-steel door sill guards, with the front sill guards embossed with the Ram logo.

Factory features include a 5.7-litre HEMI engine paired with an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, transfer case and front suspension skid plates, black tubular side steps, spray-on bedliner and a tri-fold tonneau cover emblazoned with the Ram logo.

Optional parts and accessories are available at the dealership for those who want to take personalization of the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel to the next level. In the performance arena, a cold air intake and cat-back exhaust system free up the flow of the HEMI V-8 engine while adding an aggressive sound.

The limited-edition vehicle will be available in both the U.S. and Canada, with a Canadian Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at $62,760. Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel will arrive at select dealerships in the summer.
