2015 Ram 1500 Rebel begins production

2015 Ram 1500 Rebel begins production


seeing the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel at the Detroit Auto Show, we couldn't wait to
see it up close. It seems we won't have to wait all that long. FCA announced
this week that production of the new Ram truck has begun.

of the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel is underway at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in
Detroit and will be going on sale soon. Pictures of the truck on the production
line have been circulating the internet as workers begin the run. So we should
see them hitting dealerships within a month or so.

2015 Ram 1500 Rebel

The 2015 Ram
1500 Rebel is a performance variant of the Ram 1500 truck. It's a crew cab with
some unique exterior designs, a performance engine and other enhancements to
make it stand out from the crowd. While Ram say it isn't designed to take on
the F-150 Raptor, we think it is.

exterior is pretty nice. The new grille has certainly galvanized opinion, but
once you spend time with it you get to like it. We always prefer black to
chrome and this has plenty of black. The blacked out front lights and
contrasting lower sill all look great. More black adorns the bumpers, sills and
taillights too.

Under the
hood is a 3.6-litre Pentastar V6 that will deliver 305 hp and 269 lb-ft of
torque. Those who really want performance can select a 5.7-litre HEMI engine
that delivers 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. Both use an eight speed automatic
transmission to send power to the rear or all wheels.

Talking of
wheels, 17 inch alloys with 33 inch Toyo all-terrain tires are going to ensure
great curb appeal and an ability to go almost anywhere. They alone add a real
presence to the truck as well as a few inches ground clearance.

Inside, the
black theme continues with high quality upholstery and dashboard in shades of
black, gray and red accents. A likeness to those Toyo tires is inset into the
seats for extra flavour. A cast iron-like centre console also differentiates
the Rebel from other variants.

We expect
the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel will sell exceptionally well down south, especially in
the southern states. If the performance matches the looks, we expect to see a
few of them in Canada too as it looks too cool not to!

Keep an eye
out for the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel at Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 915 Walkers
Line, Burlington, ON  L7N 3V8. Trucks are
due to hit dealerships within a month or so.
