Unofficially “Confirmed” – 2023 Ram 2500 Rebel Pack

Back in January, we were the first to break the news that the 2023 Ram 2500 would be getting a Rebel version. Thanks to an anonymous source, we know more about what that package entails.

We recently received an email from an anonymous source with an attached equipment list for what at first glance appears to be a pre-production 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. But a closer look reveals some interesting things.

While things may change from pre-production, the way the equipment list indicates that the Rebel could be a pack under the Power Wagon rather than a standalone model. The full equipment list is shown above (with the VIN redacted), but below are the parts we found interesting:

Based on the list and spyshots as above, it appears that the Rebel package will be available with either the 6.4-liter HEMI V8 or the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel. While Power Wagons carry a GVWR of 8,565 lbs, the Rebel is listed at 10,000 lbs GVWR, which should allow for a higher payload. The list also includes the new Sports Performance Hood, a new addition to the Heavy Duty range, and explains why there are so many prototypes running around with the hood camouflaged.

In terms of powertrain, we see the 6.7-liter Cummins Turbo Diesel as an option, backed by the 68RFE 6-speed automatic transmission, which would refer to it as a standard power, Cummins Turbo Diesel. Mention is made of unique Rebel badging, Rebel suspension, auto-leveling rear air suspension and the new power-adjustable side mirrors. Also listed is the new 12-inch digital instrument panel we recently showed you in a 2023 Ram 1500.

While it looks like the Rebel package will be the Power Wagon’s best in towing and payload, there will be some concessions for hardcore off-roaders. While the equipment list shows an electronic rear differential, the front differential is listed as a conventional front differential, meaning it probably doesn’t have the electronic box that the Power Wagons have. There is also no mention of the winch or the electronic front sway bar release in the equipment list.

Stay tuned to MoparInsiders as we’ll have more information on the new Ram 2500 Rebel as soon as it becomes available.
