New Limited-Edition ’16 Mopar Ram Rebel
Adding to their already expanded lineup for the 2016 model-year, Ram has teamed up with Mopar’s Custom Shop to create the limited-edition Mopar ‘16 Ram Rebel. Unlike the bright yellow hues seen on the two other special-edition Ram trucks that were introduced this year, the Limited-edition Yellow Stinger Ram 1500 Sport and the Yellow Rose of Texas Ram, the Mopar Ram Rebel is available with a duotone or monotone finish.
It’s not uncommon for a car manufacturer to outsource or work with other outside parties when designing a new vehicle, but this is the first limited-edition Ram truck that uses performance parts and accessories designed by Mopar. They have been termed “upgrades” for this limited edition series, where the aim is more than customization — it’s also to make a muscle truck.
Only 500 of the ‘16 Mopar Ram Rebels will be produced, so if you’re a collector of trucks or an enthusiast for the next hot piece on the market, you may want to get ready to pounce. Mopar has worked with other manufacturers in the past, such as Dodge on various Charger and Challenger models, but as mentioned, this is the first addition of a truck to the Mopar lineup, and it definitely enhances Ram’s already iconic style. The truck will be available in Flame Red/Brilliant Black two-tone or Brilliant Black monotone.
A dual bezel sport performance hood made of aluminum contains the factory featured 5.7L HEMI engine, and has been embellished with a matte-black hood graphic. Off-road wheels come standard with Mopar model and bulge out to add to the aesthetics of this muscle truck. Seventeen-inch and satin black, they work nicely with the billet silver bumper skid plate. Additionally, a blue-and-black Mopar graphic stripe accents both sides and the tailgate.
If the current Mopar additions aren’t enough for you, you can take personalization to the next level with optional parts and accessories available at Aventura Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram’s Mopar parts department. These special parts include cold air intake and cat-back exhaust system free up the flow of the HEMI V-8 engine and give it a more aggressive sound, furthering the muscle truck theme.
Like all Mopar limited-edition vehicles, the 2016 Mopar Ram Rebel comes with a custom owner’s kit, including Mopar ‘16 merchandise, a brochure, and a unique metal birth certificate. Dealerships across the U.S. and Canada will receive the ‘16 Mopar Rebel this summer. The MSRP starts at $52,460.
