Would you Rebel 12 times at a Rodeo with a Mojave Power Wagon?
Just kidding, not really a question, but those are the three new editions coming from RAM Trucks. The Rebel 12, Rodeo Edition and the Mojave Power Wagon.
Information on these trucks was released in September 2018, the same month that is a record month for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. “Our Ram and Jeep brands propelled both our retail and total sales to their highest levels in 18 years,” said Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales. Perhaps part of those results is that RAM Trucks is listening to what customers want, and these three editions just might attest to that. What do you think?
RAM Rebel 12
The all-new 2019 RAM 1500 redesign includes the Rebel. The RAM Rebel is the 1500 (half-ton) off-road spec pickup truck. Part of the new design for the truck included the interior of which one of the biggest (literally) features is the 12″ infotainment screen. This was initially not available on the Rebel model. However, after hearing people comment on how they wish the Rebel had the 12″ screen, RAM Trucks listened and made it happen. Hello, Rebel 12.
“Customers have been asking for additional high-end features on Rebel and now we’re delivering with benchmark technology and materials wrapped in off-road capability,” says Jim Morrison, Head of RAM Brand
The Rebel 12 is a special edition truck that will feature the latest UConnect technology on the 12″ color screen. The touchscreen is reconfigurable and even has a split screen mode. You can check out navigation maps and radio info all at the same time. Sirius XM with 360L is also available. A leather-trimmed interior and a 19 speaker Harmon Kardon speaker system will also be added to the Rebel 12 edition. Rebel trucks already come with a locking rear diff, factory lift, Bilstein shocks, skid plates and 33″ tires. Built in Michigan, the Rebel 12 will be arriving at dealerships during the last quarter of 2018.
Based on the Laramie Longhorn truck, the Rodeo edition includes more trailering features and some Southwestern luxury. Available in the heavy-duty line-up, (2500 and 3500) the Rodeo edition also gets body colored bumpers and side steps. For towing the truck will come with a 5th wheel/gooseneck prep package and the center high mount stop lamp with bed camera. Being able to see the inside of the bed on camera makes it a lot easier to back up and align the trailer.
Rodeo Editions will be available in Walnut Brown, Brilliant Chrystal Black, Bright White, Pearl White, Granite Crystal Metallic and Delmonico Red. Duallys will get 17″ polished aluminum wheels, whilst the single rear wheel trucks get 20″ aluminum wheels. The 20″ wheels will have the option of painted pockets or not. A suede headliner and “LONGHORN” badging across the tailgate adds to the luxury.
Mojave Power Wagon
The RAM Power Wagon is a heavy duty off-road pickup truck that comes standard with features such as skid plates, sway bar disconnect, and a winch. It also stands out from other trucks having not just a rear locking differential, but also a front locking differential. One of the most popular colors, on the half-ton off-road (Rebel) truck, will be available on the Power Wagon. Mojave Sand is a color that has never previously been offered on any of the heavy-duty trucks from RAM. This will be a limited edition truck only available through the final quarter of 2018. Mojave Sand packages will be an extra $795 and limited to 1500 trucks made.
