A unique truck in a sea of ​​diesel-powered competition

2023 will be an exciting year for Ram fans, with the unveiling of the new Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel, a pickup truck that combines off-road performance with heavy-duty capability. Ram claims the new Rebel will sit directly below the mighty Power Wagon and above the 2500 Laramie trim. As introduced at the Texas State Fair, the new Heavy Duty Rebel will be powered by a 6.7-liter inline-six Cummins turbo diesel engine that generates 370 horsepower and 1,152 Nm of torque. It will be available in all-wheel drive, but will lack the front pocket found on the Power Wagon. As part of its long history of producing capable off-road vehicles, Ram also brings comfort, luxury equipment and impressive technology to the new Ram Heavy Duty Rebel. However, it is fiercely competed by other off-road vehicles such as the GMC Sierra 2500, Ford F-250 and Chevrolet Silverado 2500. Will this off-road truck beast be up to the challenge? Time will tell!
