Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has introduced the limited edition Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel.
Billed as the "first limited edition Mopar vehicle for full-size truck enthusiasts," the model is based on the Ram 1500 4x4 Rebel Crew Cab and features an assortment of Mopar styling accessories.
Starting with the exterior, the truck has been equipped with an aluminum hood, extended fender flares, and a billet silver skid plate. The model also has side stripes, a matte black hood graphic, and 17-inch alloy wheels with a satin black finish.
Interior changes are limited but drivers will find stainless steel door sill plates and an individually-numbered badge on the glove box.
Power is provided by a 5.7-liter HEMI engine that produces 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a standard four-wheel drive system. Buyers looking for something more powerful can order an optional cold air intake and a cat-back exhaust system.
Production will be limited to 500 units and pricing starts at $52,460. The first deliveries are slated to begin this summer and buyers will receive a unique owner’s kit that includes "Mopar ’16 merchandise, a brochure, and a unique metal birth certificate that highlights truck specifications, date of manufacture, and the proprietary number.'

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.
“We are excited to team up with our friends at the Ram Truck brand to offer the first limited-edition Mopar vehicle for full-size truck enthusiasts,” said Pietro Gorlier, Head of Parts and Service (Mopar), FCA – Global. “The already formidable Ram 1500 Rebel is a perfect canvas for unique Mopar accessories and performance parts developed to reinforce the rugged personality of the Rebel.”
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 4x4 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.
“The new Ram Rebel has been a solid addition to the Ram lineup, providing customers with a truck that can deliver the added capability that their active lifestyles demand,” said Mike Manley, Head of Ram Brand, FCA – Global. “The Mopar '16 content illustrates how customers can easily personalize a Ram truck with factory backed accessories."
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 $52,460.
