It seems like diesel engines are everywhere these days as several companies have embraced the engine as a way to save fuel efficiency, while also providing more power and upping the torque. If there is one truck on the market that combines both luxury and capability with the diesel engine, it would be the RAM 1500 Rebel.
Rugged and Luxurious
It only takes a quick stroll around the Rebel to see how it differs from anything else on the market. While the inspired front fenders are still here, plastic replaces the chrome on the grille, bumpers, logos, and step bars. All the plastic adds more muscle to the hood. There is a lockable Ram Box storage in the bedsides as well as bed lighting to make work so much easier. Also included is a slick and innovative tailgate that can split 60/40 so that it swings open dutch style or flip-down usually. The interior of the Rebel is an eclectic blend of luxury and ruggedness. When people speak about the Rebel, they are sure to mention the tablet-style touchscreen as not only does it look beautiful, but there is also easy to command audio, climate, phone, and navigation buttons. Other convenience features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, and a 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot. You are also sure to enjoy the heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. Are you looking for an abundance of safety features? The RAM Rebel has you covered with adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and rear cross-path detection.
A Powerful Diesel Engine
The thing that separates the RAM Rebel above the competition is its diesel engine. It’s a powerful 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 that comes with 260 horsepower and a jaw-dropping 480 lb-ft of torque. The engine allows the massive RAM to rip down the highway smoothly with the turbo spinning over the hill with the four-wheel-drive locked in or going around town while barely idling. Further making its case is the fuel economy as the diesel engine gets up to 29 mpg on the highway and, as Keffer Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram explains, gives the massive truck the fuel efficacy of a mid-size SUV! The capability goes beyond the engine as the air suspension raises to all four corners, which increases the off-road ride height while lowering it while you’re on the highway to improve fuel economy. Skid plates protect the fuel tank, transfer case, and front suspension. Even more impressive is the hauling and payload capability, as the massive truck has a payload of 2,040 pounds with a towing capacity of 12,560 lbs.
There is a reason that customers keep coming back to RAM year after year. The Ram Rebel 1500 is one of the best trucks on the market thanks to its incredible mix of luxurious features and power options. Less you think that RAM sacrifices power for safety, the Rebel comes with several safety features that are sure to put a smile on anyone’s face. But the hero here is the diesel engine as the 480 lb-ft of torque and 29 mpg fuel capacity is a game-changer. Now is a great time to buy a RAM, and with these options, there is no reason to buy anything else.
