Mopar has never chosen a pickup truck to turn into their annual special edition vehicle until now. This year they have decided to add their own touch to the 2016 Ram Rebel.
Known as the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel, this accessory package will set you back $53,655 which includes a $1,195 destination charge. That’s a bit under $10,000 more than the Rebel’s MSRP but, for that price buyers will be getting a bevy of accessories including an aluminum dual bezel hood with matte-black graphic, wheel flares, 17-inch satin-black wheels, interior aluminum accents and badging, side steps, spray-in bedliner, trifold tonneau cover with a Ram logo, front skid plates, 17-inch satin-black wheels, and special Mopar graphics along the truck sides. Not too bad considering that a similarly equipped Rebel only costs around $2750 less than the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel.
Under the new hood is the standard 5.7-liter V-8 engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Although the package does not come with performance upgrades, special edition buyers can opt for additional dealer-installed features like a cold air intake or a cat-back exhaust system.
Upon delivery, Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel owners will receive a Ram-branded tool bag and a special metal certificate that details the truck’s specs and manufacturing date.
Available in either Brilliant Black or a two-tone Flame Red/Brilliant Black, only 500 units of the limited edition Rebel will be sold. So far, all of their previous limited edition vehicles have sold out so we can expect to see these flying off the lots.
