Get to Know the 2019 Ram Rebel
When Ram debuted their redesigned 1500 pickup truck for the 2019 model year, the brand gave prospective buyers everything they wanted and more. Now, buyers can choose to opt for a fully-modernized workhorse that’s as easy on the eyes inside as it is on the outside. The 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel is the perfect trim that encapsulates both fun and function in the 1500 lineup. There’s an available air suspension that makes for a cushioned ride, while the engine is more potent than ever before – and all without breaking the bank as this Ram Rebel features improved fuel economy figures. Another perk of the 2019 Ram Rebel is the noticeably enhanced towing capacity.
For the 2019 model year, the Ram Rebel offers buyers a more extensive range of features and powertrain configurations. Buyers can pick a cab size of their choice along with bed length; they can choose between the standard V6 engine or opt for a more powerful HEMI V8. Some of the more modern convenience and comfort features include the famed 12-inch touchscreen and the panoramic roof. Even though the Ram Rebel is specifically designed to own the terrain when going off-road, but the pickup isn’t so hardcore that it functions as a barely tamed beast in the city – the 2019 Ram Rebel offers the best of both worlds.
Here’s what the 2019 Ram Rebel has to offer:
A Rebel outfitted with rear-wheel-drive, combined with the HEMI V8 powertrain, and in the Quad Cab featuring the shorter of the two cargo beds has a maximum towing capacity up to 11,540 pounds. Buyers who don’t need all of this towing power can opt for the standard V6 engine under the hood and enjoy a towing capacity max up to 7,400 pounds.
The 2019 Ram Rebel offers buyers two different bed lengths to choose from – a 6-foot-4-inch cargo bed that’s paired with the Quad Cab and a larger and more passenger-friendly Crew Cab that features a 5-foot-7-inch bed. Additionally, Ram also offers the Bed Utility Group Package for $350 that includes four adjustable tie-down hooks, an LED lighting group, and a dampened tailgate to avoid loud noises or pinched fingers.
On the outside, the Ram Rebel is anything but inconspicuous as it sports a beefed-up and vented hood, along with a menacing front grille, black fender flares and a 1-inch lift in overall ride height. The Rebel also features its own 18-inch black alloy wheels, which subsequently come clad in chunky all-terrain tires.
Interior quality and design also took significant steps forward in the 2019 Ram Rebel. The standard cabin is clad in a mix of black cloth and red leather, while the dashboard is both modern and easy-to-use thanks to its controls. The optional iPad-inspired 12-inch infotainment touchscreen display is stunning, rivaling the kind of designs buyers usually find in high-end luxury cars, much less in off-road pickup trucks. A generous 8.4-inch touchscreen display is the standard otherwise.
Those who expect this Ram Rebel to ride with the same agility of a Sherman tank are in for quite the surprise as this pickup is one of the most polished out there, with riding and handling that could rival some of the best luxury SUVs. Coil-sprung suspension is standard on the Rebel, but buyers can also opt for the options and highly-rated air suspension. Since the Rebel is intended to be an off-road truck, it does offer a set of specially-tuned Bilstein shocks.
