A vehicle getting a new colour option isn’t exactly huge news but with the Ford F-150 Raptor getting all the recent coverage I wanted to even the score a little for Ram. Even if this is a tenuous link to another conversation about the excellent 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel!

The new colour is a good one though even if the name isn’t, Delmonico Red. It is a burgundy colour that comes with a black trimmed Rebel that does look the business. It will be available alongside the current colours as a no-cost option. The other colours are Bright Silver Metallic, Bright White, Brilliant Black, Flame Red, Granite Crystal Metallic and Mojave Sand and each is pretty good for a stock colour.

2017 Ram 1500 Rebel
The Ram 1500 is one of the best-selling trucks in North America. There are several good reasons for that. It looks fantastic, the engines are solid and reliable, the cabin is very comfortable and the truck can haul and tow with the best of them. Add the off road chops of the Rebel and you have a vehicle that really can go anywhere and do anything.

The Ram 1500 may be one of the longest-running truck designs out there but that is for a very good reason. It works. People still love the masculine design with the interesting front end, unapologetic grille arrangement, bulbous hood and long wheelbase.

The cabin has always been a highlight for me. Even in base trim, the interior of the 1500 has been great. Spacious, comfortable, airy and well appointed. Step up a couple of trim levels and you begin seeing luxury sedan comfort with great visibility and a very commanding driving position.

Under the hood of the 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel is a 5.7-litre Hemi V8 engine that produces 396 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. There is also the option of a 3.0-litre diesel V6 that produces 240 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Both use an eight speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear or all wheels.

Off road tires, adaptable air suspension, off road axle, skid plates and tough chassis combine to create a capable drive over any kind of terrain. The suspension reacts quickly and insulates the cabin from most bumps, whether rolling over potholes or tackling the rough stuff. This creates a very composed ride which instils confidence. You either find yourself pushing a little harder just because you can or sitting back and taking it easy, because it can.

The 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel is an excellent truck and one that I would own if I could. If you feel the same way, visit Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 915 Walkers Line, Burlington, ON  L7N 3V8 to see it in action!
