AutoGuide Reviews the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel
 
http://autoguide.com.vsassets.com/bl...-5-679x453.jpg

AutoGuide has taken the time to review the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel. Overall they give it pretty good grades, though they do point out that the fuel economy is nothing special. They try it out in both the city and the country making for a complete review.

Not just another poser truck, the Ram Rebel promises big things with its over the top looks and it delivers. If you’re looking for a new toy that you can play with on weekends in the country and get noticed all week in the city, the Ram Rebel may be just the truck for you.

On the other hand, Toyota’s TRD Pro models and the Ford Raptor both feel a little more capable than the Rebel does, especially if this were a desert off-roading situation. But, the Rebel manages to retain its on-road manners surprisingly well, definitely better than both Toyota’s TRD Pro Tundra and Ford’s Raptor, allowing it to be the better truck in a best-of-both worlds situation.
... expected, but that's something which has me wondering if anyone here who once considered the Rebel ended up going with the TRD Pro Tundra or Raptor.

From experience, the Tundra's technology is way behind any of it's competitors, and the interior is lackluster. The only positive feature I see for the Tundra is torque. Those things can pull anything. Well, that and resale value. A large part of my family was pushing me toward the Tundra, and I passed.

IMO, I actually think the Tundra is TOO big of a truck...yeah I said it. It's a pain in the rear to park! Hope I don't lose my man card on that one.

If you compare the features on the Tundra TRD Pro with the Rebel, you'll see you get more for your $$ with the Rebel.

I did not comment on the Raptor because it's WAY more expensive, I don't have any experience with one, and they're not currently in production.....The 2017 should be competitively priced, but who the heck wants a V6 Off Road truck?!?!

I think it's personal preference as The Tundra is a bit too large for me in length and the Raptor is lacking passenger doors while maintaining a higher price point.

That's what I noticed with the Tundra, and knowing Toyota's history with off-road vehicles im quite surprised they haven't done anything significant with their trucks. The only next step i know they're going to take is going diesel.

I hate that they went to fuel economy. You dont think a guy out in the dirty stuff know that when he spins it up his gas mileage is worse? You don;t think a guy buying the rebel knows it doesn't have the fuel economy of a subcompact...

Agreed. And I know this, I'm still in the break-in period and I'm averaging 4 miles/gallon better than my Hemi Durango got so I'm stoked!

^-- What he said i Didnt buy the truck for fuel mileage, although on average it has gotten close to 6-7MPG better than my Wrangler on 35's lol

That's the way it should be with these, but I know there are some guys that wish RAM would have thown a diesel in these.




TheGreatRam 08-19-2015 09:18 AM

Unfortunately for those guys, it seems like the auto industry is moving towards fuel efficiency. Is Ram going to come out with a diesel truck anytime soon?
