Mopar Reveals Modified Ram 1500 Rebel and Big Horn “Low Down” SEMA Concepts (News)

Mopar plans to show off 14 customized vehicles at this year’s SEMA event.

Out of 14 vehicles on display at Mopar’s SEMA exhibit this year, two modified Ram 1500 concepts are making their debut. The Ram 1500 Rebel concept – painted in a neutral blue nicknamed “Rebel Smoke” – leans more toward the off-road crowd. The other, the Big Horn “Low Down” concept truck appeals more to the street scene.

The Ram 1500 Rebel Concept features a Mopar lift kit that raises this Rebel two inches over the standard Ram 1500. On top of that, Mopar fit black cast-aluminum running boards and 18 x 8-inch beadlock wheels. Wrapped around those bespoke wheels are 35-inch Goodyear DuraTrac tires.

In the bed, Mopar mounted a spare wheel, as well as a Ram Bar that acts as a mounting point for five LED lights. Inside, the red anodized interior of the standard Rebel gives way to a flat black for a monochromatic look both inside and out.

While the Ram Rebel off-road concept may appeal to some, this Ram 1500 Big Horn moves in the other direction. Here, Mopar lowered the “Low Down” concept two inches closer to the ground. This concept truck has a two-tone color palette, capped off by 22-inch gloss black wheels with Brass Monkey accents.

Around the back, Mopar fitted a one-piece hard tonneau cover to the Low Down concept. From the Ram Airflow cold intake system up front, they also capped off the back with 5-inch gloss black exhaust tips.

Both concept trucks pack the 2019 Ram 1500’s standard 5.7-liter HEMI V8. These trucks appear alongside cars like the 2019 Dodge Challenger R/T Scat Pack 1320 at this year’s SEMA event. SEMA is an industry event that will open October 30 and run until November 2. Stay tuned to TFLtruck.com for more updates!
