“The half-ton off-road segment is a competitive arena with a number of players and the 2019 Ram Rebel was up to the challenge,” said Mike Herzing, president of TxMPA. “Although well-mannered for on-road, the Rebel also offers great capability, encourages spirited off-road driving and is a great-looking pickup that thrilled the Texas Motor Press Association jurors.”
The 4×4-equipped is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 24V VVT eTorque Engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission that delivers a maximum towing capacity of 11,470 pounds. When properly equipped, the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel has a payload maximum capacity of 1,710 pounds. The cabin features a standard Uconnect 3 with 5-inch display, and an 8.4-inch display is available. The available 12-inch Uconnect 4C touch screen allows drivers to customize content and view information in a split-view format.
“The Ram 1500 Rebel is a tough off-road truck, yet it offers class-leading technology and a great, no-compromise ride,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “As America’s most awarded pickup, buyers know they’re getting the best truck on the market, and one that’s ready to take roads less traveled.”
