For the 2019 model year, Ram is introducing a special edition of the 1500 Rebel that the company says is a response to customer requests for high-end features on its off-road model.
Like much of the truck maker’s 2019 lineup, the Ram 1500 Rebel 12 will feature a highly upgraded interior over previous model years. The new Rebel interior is highlighted by the inclusion of Ram’s gigantic, 12-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen display front and center in the dash.
You can read more about the Uconnect 4C in our in-depth review of the 2019 Ram 1500, but in short, the display’s bevy of features include the ability to run multiple apps in a split-screen view; provide a birds-eye view of the truck for parking; and act as the home of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.
The Rebel 12 also features what Ram is calling “the finest audio system ever available in a pickup,” in a 19-speaker Harmon Kardon system with a 900-watt surround-sound amplifier, 10-inch subwoofer and active noise cancellation.
The interior is leather trimmed with heated front seats and metal speaker grilles trimmed in a Radar Red anodized finish.
Of course you’ll get all these interior upgrades atop a fairly capable off-road truck. The Rebel comes equipped with a factory lift, locking rear diff, Bilstein shocks, skid plates, and tow hooks, among other things. The truck sits on 33-inch tires.
Ram says the Rebel 12 special edition will be an available package on all Rebel cab, color and power train configurations.
The Rebel 12 will start at $48,685, including destination charges. It will be available in the fourth quarter of this year.
