Mopar Custom Shop offers new Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel
Mopar ’16 follows successful line of limited-edition Mopar-modified vehicles, starting with Mopar ’10 Dodge Challenger June 16, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – The Ram Truck and Mopar brands announced today the introduction of the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel, the most recent limited-edition vehicle created using a unique selection of performance parts and accessories from the service, parts and customer-care brand of FCA US LLC.
The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel will feature a limited production of just 500 vehicles, upgraded with Mopar Custom Shop options. Additional parts and accessories are available at the dealership for even further customization.
The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel marks the first limited-edition Mopar-modified vehicle designed for the truck segment. It follows the Mopar ’10 Dodge Challenger, Mopar ’11 Charger, Mopar ’12 Chrysler 300, Mopar ’13 Dart, Mopar ’14 Challenger and Mopar ’15 Charger R/T as another example of how customers can have Mopar flair and performance even before taking the keys.
The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel starts with the Ram 1500 4×4 Rebel Crew Cab, built at the Warren Truck Assembly Plant in Warren, Michigan. Two color options will be available: Flame Red/Brilliant Black two-tone or Brilliant Black monotone.
A Mopar Custom Shop package created for the Mopar ’16 enhances the already unique exterior design cues of the Rebel. The package includes an aluminum, dual bezel sport performance hood embellished with a matte-black hood graphic. Off-road wheel flares bulge out to add both style and substance. A special Mopar blue-and-black graphic stripe accents both sides of the Mopar ’16, as well as the tailgate.
The package also features a skid plate to guard the power steering box and substitutes a black front bumper skid plate for the standard billet silver color. Seventeen-inch satin black wheels tie-in with the blacked out front for added continuity and visual appeal. Rounding out Custom Shop content is a serialized Mopar ’16 glove box badge and a set of stainless-steel door sill guards, with the front sill guards embossed with the Ram logo.
Factory features include a 5.7-liter HEMI® engine paired with an eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, transfer case and front suspension skid plates, black tubular side steps, spray-on bedliner and a tri-fold tonneau cover emblazoned with the Ram logo.
Optional parts and accessories are available at the dealership for those who want to take personalization of the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel to the next level. In the performance arena, a cold air intake and cat-back exhaust system free up the flow of the HEMI V-8 engine while adding an aggressive sound.
As with previous limited-edition Mopar vehicles, the Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel is delivered with a custom owner’s kit that features Mopar ’16 merchandise, a brochure and a unique metal birth certificate that highlights truck specifications, date of manufacture and the proprietary number. Kit contents are stored in an attractive case and packaged in a Ram-branded tool bag.
The limited-edition vehicle will be available in both the U.S. and Canada, with a U.S. Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) starting at USD52,460.
