2023 Ram 2500 Rebel
The 2023 Ram 2500 Rebel model focuses on the essentials of an off-road-capable pickup truck. It’s equipped with heavy-duty tires and a hefty suspension. In this review, we'll cover how each component contributes to the overall performance of the Ram 2500 Rebel.
Power and Drivetrain
The 6.4-litre Hemi V8 gas engine produces 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque, utilizing variable-valve timing (VVT). The power from the engine gets to the wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, which helps the truck reach 97 km/hour in about 7.5 seconds. This gas engine can tow up to 7,652 kg and carry up to 1,424 kg of payload.
The 6.7-litre Cummins Turbo diesel engine gives the Rebel enough power to serve you well on any job site. The 370 horsepower gives you all the power you need, while the 850 lb-ft of torque gives you plenty of pulling and hauling capability.
The diesel engine can haul a maximum payload of 894 kg and tow up to 6,768. The engine provides power to the wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission, which helps reduce shifting times and improve fuel economy.
The Connected Generation
The Uconnect-5 infotainment system's 21.33cm touchscreen display lets you use your smartphone as a multimedia hub and gives you access to apps such as Pandora and Google Maps. The truck's heated seats mean that you'll always be comfortable while driving, no matter the temperature outside. Other goodies include power-folding towing mirrors, a surround-view camera system, and much more.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
Adaptive cruise control automatically adjusts to the vehicle's speed in front of you. Full-speed forward-collision warning alerts you when there's an obstacle in your path and will brake for you if you don't take action. Lane assist helps keep you on the course, but it can also apply a little steering action to ensure it stays on course. When you tow a trailer, a digital rearview mirror displays a magnified image of what's behind your vehicle.
