Mopar has decided to tease two new 2019 Ram 1500-based concepts for the 2018 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show. The event is the premier automotive specialty products trade show in the world and is scheduled to take place October 30 – November 2 in Las Vegas.
The first concept is the Mopar-modified Ram 1500 Rebel Concept. Mopar pulled from its palette more than 200 parts and accessories for the all-new Ram 1500 and also bolted on select concept products to reinforce the already off-road capable personality of the Ram 1500 Rebel.
The Ram 1500 Rebel is painted a custom neutral blue, nicknamed “Rebel Smoke,” and is outfitted for the trail with a Mopar lift kit that raises the Ram two inches for enhanced off-road clearance. One-piece cast-aluminum black Mopar off-road running boards provide easy ingress and egress. Mopar Satin Black 18-inch x 8-inch cast-aluminum beadlock wheels are trimmed with “Rebel Smoke” body-color wheel rings and wrapped with 35-inch Goodyear DuraTrac tires, putting proper traction and tread to the trail. Production wheel flares and Grey Metallic skid plates deliver an extra dose of off-road protection.
A Mopar conceptual performance hood covers the 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine, which receives an additional performance bump thanks to the Mopar “Ram Airflow” cold-air intake system, stamped up front with a molded R-A-M logo. The appearance of the performance hood pops even more with a Grey Metallic Mopar graphic and a Ram 1500 HEMI badge for those who want to share with the world what’s underneath. All vehicle badging has been turned Grey Metallic.
A Ram Bar in the bed acts as a mounting location for five 5-inch LED lights that illuminate the trail at a bright 4,800 lumens each. The bed also incorporates a conceptual rear spare tire carrier, Mopar rear bed step and black spray-in bedliner. Satin Black Rebel graphics from Mopar dress up the bed sides and Mopar 5-inch Gloss Black exhaust tips complete the rear custom touches.
Inside, soft and hard interior trim has been transformed to carry a black monochromatic look, a distinct change from the standard red anodized Rebel trim. Mopar accessories complete the interior, including all-weather mats, brushed and polished door sill guards with the R-A-M logo, wireless charging and a conceptual pedal kit.
