What began as a trim package for the Ram 1500 has spawned a special edition. The Rebel Black will be unleashed next week at the North American Auto Show in Detroit. We spent a week with a Rebel back in July, and one of the most polarizing features was the two-tone exterior. Our coworkers either loved it or found the two-tone exterior was over the top. Fiat-Chrysler must have been listening, because Rebel Black is exactly what it implies. The brush guards, wheels and fender flares are blacked out along with the interior. Although this package can be had on any standard Rebel color, the murdered out motif is most appealing.
Only available in short wheelbase 4WD with a crew cab, Rebel Black is offered with three engine choices. The interior is accented by black chrome and anodized trim and black leather from our friends at Katzkin seats. The differences are mostly cosmetic, because Rebel packs some serious hardware. From the 33″ Toyo all terrain tires to adjustable air suspension, it offers the best of both worlds in a daily driver and off road performance. The only option we would add would be the Hellcat 707 hp V8, but the transfer case would probably detonate. As soon as we can get our hands on a Ram Rebel Black expect to see a full review here on Autofluence.
