When the new 2019 Ram Rebel came out earlier this year, it had the off-road upgrades to make it the most off-road worthy truck in the Ram half-ton lineup. Something was missing, and Ram says that customers were asking for even more luxurious appointments and features for the Rebel. Enter the Rebel 12. It’s the latest addition to the Ram 1500 lineup, and it is the most luxurious version of the Rebel.
Rebel 12 pricing starts at $48,685 (including destination charges), but the V8 eTorque and all the options can push the final MSRP to over $64,000. What do you get for the price?
2019 Ram Rebel 12
The name itself comes from the now optional 12-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is also available on the Ram 1500 Longhorn and Limited trim levels.
The Rebel 12 package can be added to any 2019 Rebel, and it costs $2,995.
This includes the aforementioned giant vertical screen with Uconnect 4C infotainment system, leather-trimmed bucket seats, 19-speaker 900 watt Harman Kardon stereo system, included SiriusXM Traffic, 360L on-demand content, and Guardian services.
What options can push the Rebel 12 price to over $64,000?
V8 eTorque HEMI V8 adds $1,450 to the standard V8. It also improves the combined EPA rating by 2 MPG to 19 MPG. The power rating is 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. The V8 is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission.
Level 2 Equipment Group adds $3,000 with dual-zone climate, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, heated seats & steering wheel, remote-start, ParkSense, power adjustable pedals, power folding mirrors, and more.
While the Rebel can be had with steel coil spring suspension that offers a one-inch lift over a standard Ram 1500 – the optional height-adjustable air suspension adds $1,795.
The panoramic sunroof is another $1,495. Trailer Tow Group is $400, and it includes a trailer brake controller.
RamBox bed-side lockable storage boxes add $995. (By the way, Ram says that 2019 trucks with the RamBox are heading to dealers now, and it is only available with the shorter bed configuration.) Spray-in bed liner is $595. Blind-spot and Cross-path detection drive assistance system is another $595.
All-together, the Rebel options list can run up to $14,910.
Are trucks getting too expensive? There still does not seem to be a limit on how luxurious and expensive trucks can be. For example, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4 and the Ford F-150 Raptor fully-optioned prices exceed the $64,000 barrier for the Rebel 12.
