Four Wheeler Magazine Names 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel Pickup Truck of the Year
Due to its unparalleled off-road capabilities, the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel has earned the title of Pickup Truck of the Year from the off-road experts at Four Wheeler Magazine. After enduring a 1,000-mile, five-day race, which took the formidable truck through various road obstacles such as technical trails and city traffic, the Ram 1500 Rebel earned winning accolades from the magazine’s seven-judge panel.
“The entire 2019 Ram lineup is impressive, but what the company was able to do when confronted with the task of developing a competitive off-road package leaves little to be desired,” said Sean Holman, Group Content Director for Four Wheeler. “Starting with a stiff chassis, skid plates, electrically-activated rear locker, 33-inch Goodyear Duratrac tires, tow hooks and a stellar implementation of Bilstein shocks means that the Rebel is a willing and ready trail companion right out of the box. Add to that the Ram’s benchmark interior, supple ride and incredible technology and the Rebel is an everyday driver that isn’t afraid to go adventuring on the weekends.”
After impressing the judges with its design, comfort and performance, the Ram 1500 Rebel is earning well-deserved recognition.
“The Ram Rebel is the rugged extreme of the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 lineup, and this award from Four Wheeler magazine recognizes Rebel’s combination of capability, design and durability,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, FCA. “We worked hard to deliver something unique with the Rebel, and it’s a proud feeling when a leading off-road enthusiast publication stands behind it as their Pickup Truck of the Year.”
The 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel sports a weight decrease of 225 pounds over previous models without sacrificing its incredible capability — 2,300 pounds of payload and 12,750 pounds of towing when properly equipped. Its infotainment system features a split-screen-capable 12-inch touch screen, the largest in the pickup segment.
