Ram's Newest Fully-Loaded Off-Roader Can Brush $100,000...

If you are a Ram off-road pickup fan, 2023 looks to be a great year with the introduction of the new 2023 Ram 2500 Rebel Crew Cab 4×4. The 2500 Rebel expands the brand’s heavy-duty lineup and offers a unique and exceptional combination of off-road performance without sacrificing towing and payload capabilities, unlike the 2500 Power Wagon.

The Ram 2500 Rebel offers a choice between a 6.4-liter HEMI® V8 with cylinder deactivation and variable-cam timing (VCT) or a 6.7-liter Cummins I6 turbodiesel engine. Other features that the Rebel model features include a unique suspension, rear limited-slip differential, rear electronic locker, and an available 12,000 lb. WARN winch installed from the factory (only on HEMI models).

Recently, Ram finally updated their Build & Price configurator to include the 2023 Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty.  So it only took a few moments to jump behind the keyboard and start building a fully loaded 2023 Ram 2500 Rebel Level 2. It didn’t take long for the truck’s entry-level manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $67,330 to quickly climb after we added $28,900 in options for a grand total of $96,230.

When all is said and done, the Cummins-powered Rebel is far more expensive than the HEMI-Power Wagon despite its additional off-road hardware (WARN 12,000 lb winch, electronic locking front, and rear differentials, and electronic disconnecting front sway bar).

With the Power Wagon, if you equipped the truck with every option including the Level 2 Equipment Package the total comes to an MSRP of $85,805 (excluding destination and other fees).

So if it’s the Cummins you seek, the Rebel is the only choice for those looking for the Power Wagon looks with diesel power. For those who could care less about the Power Wagon looks and want to go more upscale with the looks of the 3/4-ton off-roader, you can find similar equipment on the Ram 2500 Laramie Night Edition Off-Road Group (which is around the same price) or the Laramie Sport with Off-Road Group (to save you a few dollars).
