OE Spotlight: 2024 Ram Rebel HD Gets Cummins

Ram truck owners have been asking for it and Ram is finally delivering. Check out the all-new 2024 Ram Rebel 2500 Heavy Duty. A rig with exceptional Off-road performance, towing and payload, and now, a 6.7-liter Cummins.

The Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel is positioned between Laramie and Power Wagon, and offers off-road truck buyers an even wider selection with increased off-road performance and towing and payload capability. Ram Heavy Duty Rebel features a unique combination of technology, performance, and a distinctive exterior appearance straight from the factory.

The Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel uses Power Wagon’s chassis structure and off-road prowess as a base while offering an alternative that off-road truck customers have been clamoring for, an available 6.7-liter Cummins standard-output diesel engine delivering 370 horsepower and 850 lb-ft of torque. What’s more, that powerband provides ample torque starting at 1,700 rpm. The 68RFE six-speed automatic transmission is standard with the diesel option.

The 2024 Ram Rebel HD offers three seating options, a 360-degree Surround View camera, and other upgrades.

Exterior styling is a shared design with Power Wagon, but Rebel features unique badging and a sport-performance hood. Ram Heavy Duty Rebel also features a unique off-road suspension, a rear limited-slip differential, a rear electronic locker, 20-inch wheels (optional 18-inch wheels), 33-inch off-road tires, and skid plates to protect the fuel tank and transfer case. Cargo tie-downs are standard while a spray-in bedliner, LED bed lighting, and bed step are available.

An integrated front-mounted, 12,000-pound WARN Zeon-12 winch is available on 2024 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel models equipped with the 6.4-liter HEMI, but unfortunately, not the Cummins (it interferes with the intercooler).

Ram Heavy Duty trucks already feature a suspension system that offers a comfortable ride and great handling, loaded or unloaded. The 2024 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel uses this exclusive five-link coil design that provides enhanced load-carrying characteristics and articulation. A rear air suspension system is also available, further enhancing the truck’s best-in-class ride and handling qualities. Maximum towing for the 2024 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel is 16,870 pounds and maximum payload is 3,140 pounds.

Inside, the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel offers three seating options, including a cloth bench or bucket seat, a Bristol leather bench or bucket seat, and a Natura Plus leather bucket seat. Rebel also features a 360-degree Surround View camera, which includes forward-view camera gridlines to help navigate obstacles. This system provides a single display-screen view of both sides of a trailer to assist drivers in maneuvering towing setups.

An available 12-inch frameless digital gauge cluster features nearly two dozen different menus. The full-color cluster features five reconfigurable tiles for at-a-glance data or quick and easy access to the most used information. Drivers may choose between analog or digital instrumentation. All cluster settings can be saved to a user profile.
