The Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel was named the “Best Off-road Vehicle” by the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press at the 10th Annual Mountain Driving Experience.
Every year, more than 30 journalists head to the Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Tabernash, Colorado to spend two days driving and grading various trucks on their capabilities. At the end of this, the journalist then compare notes and votes to showcase which vehicles they believed shone more brightly than the rest. In this year, the 10th Annual Rocky Mountain Driving Experience, the Mopar 2016 Ram Rebel was the shining star of the truck category.
“For the second consecutive year, RMAP journalists have selected the Ram Rebel because of its combination of off-road capability, power and comfort,” said David Muramoto, President of RMAP in a statement. “That’s what made it a winner.”
The 2016 Ram Rebel is based on the Ram 1500 4×4 Rebel Crew Cab and is the first time Mopar has modified a vehicle in the truck segment. It features numerous upgrades, including a skid plate to guard the power steering box and 17-inch satin black wheels. It’s an eye-catching truck that does not skimp out on capability, as the journalist who could spend time with it found out. It’s the best of both worlds; visually appealing and keeps the power of a truck.
