Thanks to our sister site 5thGenRams.com, we have know for the past couple of weeks that the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan has been building 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel models. Probably the most talked about trim package of the all-new Ram 1500 since it’s debut earlier this year at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), has been the Rebel.
The 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel is even more capable, now available in Quad Cab configurations and featuring new 18-inch wheels with 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires driven by an electronic-locking rear differential. The Rebel predecessor came standard with Ram’s Active-level four-corner air suspension and a one-inch suspension lift. While air suspension is still available, the new Rebel comes standard with coil spring suspension and a one-inch factory lift.
Newly designed Bilstein shocks feature remote reservoirs to keep the shocks cool and work with unique rear suspension geometry to keep the tires in traction. Rebel also includes Hill-descent Control for more off-road prowess. Hefty 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 gas tank.
With the model getting ready to finally hit dealership showrooms, FCA US released a smaller teaser video on YouTube this morning.
