2020 Ram 1500 Rebel Crew Cab 4×4 EcoDiesel in Stealth Mode
The 2020 Ram 1500 Rebel 4×4 EcoDiesel in Black Appearance motif is about as good (or ‘bad’) as you can get in a full-size pickup truck. Especially when loaded up with ALL of the goodies – like the one we recently road tested for a week in Hill Country Texas.
2020 Ram Rebel EcoDiesel Crew Cab 4×4
This week our test drive was the awesomely badass black 2020 Ram 1500 Crew Cab EcoDiesel 4×4 pickup. Right up front, we will tell you that it does not fit in our garage and is not under $40K. Frankly, we don’t care and you shouldn’t either.
If you want big, bold and beautiful, powerful and solid with comfort and technology of every type – this truck has it.
This Rebel Crew Cab 4×4 was clad in a stealthy new Black Appearance Package featuring Monotone Steel Metallic paint, distinctive Black Grille, Powder Coat front and rear Steel Bumpers, Black Headlight Bezels, Black Side Steps, Black Fender Flares, Gloss Black Wheels and Black Badging.
Stealthy was powerful too – equipped with the new Ram Gen3 V6 Turbo Diesel kicking out 260 horsepower. The Gen3 version multiplies the horsepower significantly, kicking out a whopping 480 lb.-ft. of torque. The power is delivered through the 8-speed 8HP75 automatic transmission to the 4×4 part-time drive train.
On and Off-Road Chops
Highway and off-road handling elements include the 18-inch Cast Aluminum Wheels mounted w/LT 275/70R18E OWL All-Terrain Tires, Performance Tuned Shocks front and rear, 3.92 Electronic Locking Rear Axle.
Our stealth Rebel included the segment exclusive Ram Active Four Corner Air-Suspension with an additional 2-inches of lift that enables a 10.7-inch ground clearance. Protecting the Rebel’s running gear are Skid Plates for the Front Suspension, Transfer Case and Fuel Tank.
