After the recent introduction, the 2024 Ram 2500 Rebel will be in the second production year and therefore, we don’t expect to see significant changes. The next year’s model should continue in the same way, offering a great balance between utility and off-road capability. The Rebel HD is a well-balanced pickup, which can deal with all kinds of tasks, and that’s probably the main reason why it enjoys great popularity, even though it is a brand-new model.
Considering that some sources speculate about a mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 RAM HD models, we presume that these updates would also affect this version. We presume we would see some styling changes, but there’s no doubt that the Rebel would carry on with its exclusive details, which accentuate its off-road/utility nature. On the other hand, we do not doubt that the 2024 Ram 2500 Rebel would remain unchanged in terms of mechanics.
2024 Ram 2500 Rebel Design
So, with updates or without, the next year’s Rebel will continue with its exclusive features and design solutions. In terms of aesthetics, it’s pretty easy to recognize this pickup. Some of the highlights are a unique grille design, which comes in a combination with lots of black exterior details and massive 20-inch wheels with all-terrain tires. Furthermore, there are things like LED headlights and foglights, as well as cab clearance lighting. You will also notice a sport hood design, as well as fender flares, and we have no doubt that the 2024 Ram 2500 Rebel will carry on with all these exclusive features.
Still, we are far more interested in mechanical upgrades, and this is where this pickup really shines. It comes standard with four-wheel drive, along with off-road suspension, rear limited-slip differential, locking rear axle, skid plates and recovery hooks.
Compared to the Power Wagon, it features a little bit less sophisticated off-road suspension, with less travel. It comes with firmer rear springs and without disconnecting sway bar up front. That makes it slightly less capable than the Power Wagon in terms of off-roading but on the other hand, significantly improves the max towing capacity, which goes up to 16.000 pounds, compared to Power Wagon’s 10.000 pounds.
When it comes to interior design, the 2024 Ram 2500 Rebel will continue relying on the standard Ram 2500 models, offering a high-quality cabin, full of nice materials and with a lot of attention to detail. Moreover, there are some extra features that you don’t get with more basic variants of the truck, such as a digital instrument cluster. Also, cloth upholstery is part of the standard equipment, along with all-weather floor mats. Power-adjustable pedals are also part of the standard equipment, while there are also a few smart solutions for increasing interior practicality, such as the second-row in-floor storage bins.
Furthermore, this cabin also includes an 8.4-inch touchscreen, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. The Rebel also comes with a couple of driver-assistance upgrades, such as a surround-view camera, front and rear parking sensors etc.
2024 Ram 2500 Rebel Engine
One of the best qualities of the 2024 Ram 2500 Rebel will remain its powertrain offer. Unlike the Power Wagon that comes only with a gasoline engine, the Rebel is available with diesel too. So, base models come with a 6.4-liter V8 gasoline engine, which puts out around 410 horsepower d 429 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
On the other hand, the diesel model comes with a 6.7-liter inline-six turbodiesel, which features a max output of 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
2024 Ram 2500 Rebel Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Ram 2500 Rebel will arrive sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price of around 69.000 dollars.
