What sets the Rebel Black special edition apart? This truck comes with anodized bezels on doors, special instrument design, all-black and embroidered seating, and more. According to FCA, you also get your choice between the 5.-7liter HEMI V8 or the Pentastar V6. With these, you get impressive performance and fuel economy.

“Adding the Rebel Black package to an already aggressive off-road truck will continue feeding the momentum Rebel is creating for the Ram Truck brand,” said Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand and Ram Brand, FCA – Global. “The Ram Rebel is unique in the full-size truck segment with 33-inch off-road tires, air suspension and custom interior details.”

New Ram 1500 Special Editions

The Ram 1500 is a full-size pickup known for its intimidating stance and overwhelming strength but now the truck is about to turn even more heads. Fiat Chrysler is adding two new Special Edition models to the popular pickup. While they’re mostly cosmetic, the Ram 1500 Special Editions are certainly a welcome sight in the full-size truck segment.

Orange trucks are a thing of the past but the Ram 1500 Ignition Orange Sport looks to revitalize the color. The Ignition Orange Sport returns with a, you guessed it, orange paintjob with black hood graphics, black-out exterior trim, and black wheels.

The interior of the Ram 1500 Ignition Sport brings orange stitching, orange-painted trim, and orange ram’s-head logos on the headrests.

Both packages are limited to Ram 1500 models.

We here at Corwin Dodge Ram are pumped for the addition of the new Ram 1500 Special Edition packages!

Ram 1500 Truck Named Back-to-Back Truck of the Year

Motor Trend magazine is a highly reliable source to find great information on vehicles you are interested in, and advice on which vehicles they like the best. Each year they hold the “of the Year” event that names a vehicle in each segment as the vehicle of the year. This time, there was a first for Motor Trend. They named the Ram 1500 truck as the Truck of the Year for a second year in a row, which is a first for any truck.

A lot of factors go in to considering what vehicle will be placed in the number one spot of the year. First of all a vehicle must be new or significantly changed since the previous model, and it has to rank well in all categories of a truck.

The Ram 1500 added a new EcoDiesel engine to it that provides more energy and more power. This V6 engine provided lots of torque while still keeping great fuel economy. “Not only did [the Ram 1500] withstand our rigorous testing, it thoroughly impressed our judges with its vast array of standard and optional equipment, and most notable, its fuel-efficient, segment-exclusive EcoDiesel V-6. With 420 pound-feet of torque and up to 28 ‘Real MPG’ highway, the EcoDiesel is a true game-changer,” said Motor Trend’s Editor-In-Chief.

Engine features aren’t the only great aspects of the Ram 1500 truck though. Motor Trend also enjoyed its style and towing capability, giving top remarks for these categories.

Getting this ground-breaking truck will really make you appreciate its top-notch EcoDiesel engine and beautiful look. Come see the Ram 1500 trucks on our lot to go for a test drive and see exactly what reviewers are ranting and raving about.
