Fiat Chrysler has revealed two Ram 1500 concepts before their debut at this year’s SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
Carmakers from around the world are gathering in sunny Las Vegas to escape the cold embrace of winter and to show off their latest and greatest wares. FCA is no exception, tapping their Mopar Division to provide a pair of unique concept Ram 1500 pickups just in time for SEMA.
The first truck is a highly modified Ram 1500 Rebel trim that takes its off-road character to the next level. Mopar uses 200 parts and accessories on the Rebel, and the final product is almost unrecognizable from the original truck.
FCA calls the Rebel’s paint job "Rebel Smoke" and describes it as a “neutral blue” color, although we think it’s a little closer to greenish-blue than neutral blue. The Rebel retains its black-accented components to keep that sporty exterior, and then gets lifted 2-inches for even greater ground clearance.
On the outside, one-piece cast-aluminum Mopar off-road running boards make getting into and out of the truck a breeze, while 18x8-inch cast-aluminum beadlock wheels are painted Satin Black and given body color rings. A set of 35-inch Goodyear DuraTrac tires provide off-road grip in all types of terrain.
The Rebel’s 5.7-L HEMI V8 now has a Mopar “Ram Airflow” cold-air intake system and is covered in a Mopar conceptual performance hood. Mopar 5-inch exhaust tips are painted black to match the accenting, and on the inside, the pickup gets wireless charging and an all-new set of pedals.
For Mopar’s second truck, we get a customized Ram 1500 Big Horn. Called the “Low Down”, the truck has been lowered 2-inches to give it more of a street-life vibe as opposed to the normal Big Horn’s farm-life aesthetic.
The exterior color is a combination of Billet Silver and with a Brass Monkey stripe along the side, with 22-inch oversized production wheels colored custom Gloss Black with Brass Monkey accents. The Low Down’s wheel flares have been given a few rivets and painted the same color as the body because that’s apparently trendy these days.
Completing the build is the same Ram Airflow cold-air intake system and a set of 5-inch exhaust tips.
FCA will bring 14 customized vehicles to SEMA this year, so stay tuned for more custom goodies.
