2016 Ram 1500 Rebel Wins Four Wheeler Magazine’s Pickup Truck of the Year
Overpowering the Competition
Here at Westgate Chrysler Jeep Dodge, we make it our priority to learn everything there is to know about each and every vehicle we carry. So when we heard that the popular off-roading magazine Four Wheeler had named the 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel as their winner for Pickup Truck of the Year, we weren’t that surprised. We already knew the Ram 1500 was capable of taking on anything you could throw at it, so coming in first after a comprehensive weeklong, 1,000 mile, multi-terrain competition would have been no problem for the heavy-duty truck.
This year’s Ram 1500 Rebel surpassed all its competitors, including quality brands like Chevy, Nissan, and Toyota, when it came to overall durability, interior comfort and amenities, fuel economy, and its ability to perform through every real-world and off-road situation imaginable. And with its impressive 5.7L Hemi V8 engine, which is capable of producing an overwhelming 395-horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque, the Ram powerhouse left all the other trucks in the dust.
As Four Wheeler editor Christen Hazel stated, “No matter what we threw at the Ram 1500 Rebel, it just flat-out worked with no drama, no excuses, and no compromises. The Ram 1500 Rebel was the vehicle the Four Wheeler judges overwhelmingly choose not only as the 2016 Four Wheeler Truck of the Year, but the vehicle they’d most like to take home if they had the chance.”
Thoughtfully Designed, Inside and Out
Another thing the judges raved about was the Ram 1500 Rebel’s balance. With its stand out style, remarkable towing capability, exceptional suspension and handling, flexible storage capacity, comfortable interior and convenient features, the Ram checked off all the boxes when it came to designing the Rebel. While features like the Trailer Sway Control, the RamBox® Cargo Management System, Active Air® Grille Shutters, and Hill start Assist certainly define the Ram 1500 Rebel as a tough and reliable heavy-duty truck, it’s the interior amenities that really set it apart from its competitors.
It’s clear that a lot of thought and consideration went into every detail of interior of the 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel. Everything from the luxurious touches, like the two-toned radar red and black embossed seats and real wood accents, to the highly advanced technology, like the Uconnect® Access with 7-inch multi-view display made the Ram 1500 a winner right from the start.
