The truck-oriented US brand, a unit of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, has used the SEMA show taking place in Las Vegas to officially deliver the new Rebel X one-off. The concept uses the underpins of a regular Ram 1500 Rebel albeit with a Dark Copper exterior finish adorned with Matte Black and Mopar Blue touches. We can also see a sportier hood, some extended fender flares and the 35-inch Toyo tires are being fitted with 17-inch cast-aluminum beadlock wheels. Other features include a tri-fold tonneau cover, the tubular side steps and a two-piece front skid plate. As for the cabin, the eager onlookers will see it has been fitted with black Katzkin leather seats that have embroidered “Rebel X” lettering, alloy pedals, copper contrast stitching, special sill plates and all-weather floor mats. If anyone forgot about it, the base Rebel truck is an off-road performer oriented version of the regular 1500, with some exterior and interior changes to justify the naming. The model coming out the production line has two engine choices: either a base 3.6-liter V6 with 305 bhp (227 kW) and 269 lb-ft (364 Nm) of torque or the mighty 5.7-liter HEMI V8 churning out 395 bhp (294 kW) and 410 lb-ft (555 Nm) of torque. The latter option was used for the Rebel X, with the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 mill treated to a cold-air intake and a cat-back exhaust system which most likely will add some ponies to the aforementioned mix. Unfortunately Ram was silent on any technical or performance specifications of the one-off model being shown these days in Las Vegas.
