Although many expected to see Ram 1500 Rebel Hellcat-powered TRX at the upcoming Detroit auto show, the American automaker decided to reveal another special edition version – 1500 Rebel Black. The new vehicle will be unveiled on January 9, and it is precisely what its name says, a standard Ram 1500 Rebel decorated in black. The model features a black brush guard, black wheels, and optional black Katzkin leather, all of which results in a combination never seen before on the 1500 Rebel truck.
The model also has a few black accents on the doors, instrument panel, gauge cluster trim rings and center console. Ram decided to go with gray “Rebel” embroidery on the seats that also feature gray accent stitching just like the one around the dashboard.
