New Ram 1500 Rebel Black Edition Unveiled in the Middle East
Ram has announced the arrival of the Ram 1500 Rebel Black Edition in the region, as part of its MY2020 lineup. The Black Edition brings a new look and more features to the Rebel, adding even greater appeal to a well-rounded list that offers something for nearly every truck buyer.
“Buyers demand a good-looking truck with easy-to-use features. They often tell us that their Ram trucks are an extension of their personality and want to stand out from the crowd,” said Stuart Laurie, Head of Ram Brand in the Middle East. “Whether it’s the off-road-enthusiast appeal of the Ram 1500 Rebel or the luxury of the Limited, Ram trucks deliver features and durability that are winning over more and more buyers. With the 2020 Ram 1500 Rebel Black, we merged both worlds into one.”
Off-Road Capabilities With No Compromise
From the get-go, the Rebel® challenged conventional thinking. And the New 2020 Ram 1500 Rebel Black Special Edition for the launch of the new model year goes even further.
When it comes to capability, the 2020 Ram 1500 Rebel is the truck of choice in the 1500 lineup. Aggressive all-terrain tires and a 1-inch factory lift give the 1500 Rebel® a fierce look, that can be pushed even further with an available and class-exclusive Active-LevelTM Four Corner Air Suspension that provides the Rebel with an extra inch of lift on-demand and different ride heights like Entry/Exit (lowest), Aero for highway efficiency, Normal and Off-Road (highest).
For the shock absorbers, the Rebel comes with newly designed Bilstein shocks feature remote reservoirs to keep the shocks fresh and work with unique rear suspension geometry to keep the 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® all-terrain tires in traction and take you everywhere from paved streets to rocky trails. For even more off-road performance, Rebel comes standard with new Elocker® electronic locking rear differential and Hill-descent Control.
Sharp tow hooks feature wide bumper openings to ease use, and the underbody protection features skid plates on the transfer case, steering system, oil pan and petrol tank.
The legendary 5.7-litre HEMI® V8 powers rebel with variable-valve timing (VVT) for greater efficiency and performance. It delivers 395hp at 5,600 rpm, 410 lb.-ft. of torque in a smooth, broad powerband that avoids the hesitation and peakiness of turbocharged engines, and is linked to a smooth 8-speed automatic transmission.
Significantly, the tried and tested 5.7-litre HEMI® V8 doesn’t sound or feel like a V8 until you want it to. With the windows up on the highway, it runs crossover quiet, thanks in part to expanded active noise cancellation and cylinder deactivation. To control the power, 2020 Ram 1500 features the most massive front brake rotors in the segment at
