Mark your calenders, the 16th is when it all goes down. First off-road appearance.

Auburn Hills, MI -(Ammoland.com)- On May 16, the new 2015 Ram Rebel will make its first off-road-event appearance since its unveiling at the North American International Auto Show in January.

The Ram Truck brand is bringing Rebel — Ram’s new one-off-a-kind half-ton truck — to one of America’s top outdoor adventurer destinations: Overland Expo in Mormon Lake, Arizona.

The Overland Expo draws more than 6,000 explorers, adventurers, off-highway journeyers and their families from around the globe for three days of camping, workshops, classes and outdoor-product demonstrations. Demonstrations and skills challenges are also a part of the Mormon Lake activities.

“The Ram Rebel fulfills customer demand for an aggressively styled, factory-built off-road-style package,” said Bob Hegbloom, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand, FCA US. “Overland Expo has grown to be a must-attend event for adventurers who rely on their vehicles to get them off the beaten path. It’s a great fit for Ram Trucks.”

Ram will host a special Rebel press conference at Overland Expo at 11 a.m., Saturday, May 16. A customer clinic hosted by Ram product experts will follow at 1 p.m.

Good to see they're taking advantage of this event, which would bring into question what other events we can expect to see the Rebel at. Too bad at this stage it doesn't seem RAM has that part organized, a "tour" timeline would help.

Sounds like most auto sites are visiting. I know the fast lane truck and pickup trucks.com are going and I bet jalopnik and auto blog as well

I just came from the local dealership in Flagstaff and they brought 5 Rebels and one Powerwagon . I got to start up one of the rebels and they sound nice.

yes a nice truck, At the highest ride height it doesn't seem to really sit very high and I don't think you can put a lift on these trucks with the air suspension. also it looks to me like the ram cargo box takes up bed room, and the cover over the bed looks like it would be a pain to adjust for tall cargo. I still think its a very nice truck and if the price is right I will be excited to own one. But its not a 50 thousand dollar truck might as well buy a Power Wagon for the same amount.

Went looking on that dealerships website along with the social media platforms they're on, surprised they didn't post a single thing about this.

Disappointed.

Did you see a window sticker? Was it right at the $50K the dealers have quoted me and provided the documentation?

If I remember correctly the review embargo lifts at. 12:01 am on Tuesday. Then they can say what ever. So Tuesday morning should be a fun morning with lots of reading.

Yup, thankfully we're seeing a lot of that come online now, a lot of great feedback so far that will give potential owners going to test drive these some sort of stronger framework to make their own calls on it.

Haven't paid attention to a regular 1500 sound but the rebel was throaty without being obnoxious, sounded good
