2015-ram-1500-rebel-interior-view.jpg

I'm stoked about the new 2015 Dodge RAM Rebel, and I'm wondering what intrigues you the most.

The sweet lines on the exterior? The fact that its an off-road counter part to the RAM 1500? The price?

Sound off in this thread por favor!

The fact that it has 2500ish front looks with 1500 weight
The silver bumper section just below the grille (always liked that on 3rd gen trucks)
Added offroad capabilities and clearance

*Edit:
That it should be able to actually tow something
That it has the Sport hood!

I live in Canada in the country where we get a lot of snow. I am not looking for anything to do major off road but the extra capacity of this truck fit nicely without having to go to extreme. Love the looks, but waiting for the tow numbers before I make my final decision.

What will those towing numbers have to look like for you to go all in and what engine/package are you looking to equip it with?

My first Dodge truck was a 2000 Ram 1500 Off-Roadster, which had 2500 axles 4.11 gears and off-road suspension from the factory. This truck was close, but the Rebel is there. It has beefier suspension, better tires, (not sure about the air suspension off road havn't read much about it) But the thing that attracted me in the first place, was the front end.
I like the new grill, and the way it looks with the hood. I plan on getting a 2-tone grey model.
I like the fact, that almost nobody I work with likes the truck, I'm buying it because I like it, not to satisfy someone else.
I don't do a lot of off-road driving, but I work in an industry where I have to be able to get to work, even if there is 15" of snow on the ground. This truck fits the bill. Still waiting for the dealer to let me know I can order one.

@jhoffman63 got his order in already. When is the last time you spoke to your dealer?

Went to the dealer yesterday, he had 5 trucks on order with no delivery date. They were labeled as 2016, the dealer indicated to me that all Rebel's would be 2016 models, I thought they were going to be 2015. At any rate he will have them on the lot in a month or so, going to test drive the closest thing he had on the lot, a 5.7 crew with air suspension. In a week or so. I also got to look at the rambox, and I think I will be getting that also, nice to have a bit of a "trunk" on a pickup.

I tried to configure Air suspension, with ram box and moon roof on a couple of 1500 models and it wouldn't let me. Anyone know if this combo will be available with the Rebel ?

The Dealer in my area had 3 shipped to him that were 2015s. I purchased his last one. Everything from this point on will be 2016 they get. According to what they said, the Dealers who signed up early would be sent 2015s but apparently the 2015 run was very short.

As far as what features do I like. Love the new grill, like the black bumpers, the air suspension, the interior (really like the fact that the trim ring around the center console is red and not chrome which would blind you when the sun hits is) and overall I just like the whole truck.

Still getting use to the shifter. My 2012 Ram had the T-handle type shifter in the center console and the Rebal has a dial. Definitely going to take some getting use to.

Well said, Mass Rebel. Basically, the truck excites me. It's the total package. A big step up from my 2011 Bighorn but not a drastic package with a huge price tag. It suits my lifestyle.

I've heard depending on options you cannot order moon roof and rambox together. Something to do with the weight of those options combined. I think that was on a Laramie tho...not sure if that will be any different with the Rebel but must be if jhoffman got both of those options..

The rebel is pretty bad ass, I like the fact it does not look like every other Ram sport on the road, Air ride for towing and Ram box for camping, it's a rugged truck and when it's cleaned up still looks pretty classy.
