Four Wheeler Magazine has named the new 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel its Pickup Truck of the Year. For the past 28 years the Four Wheeler staff has chosen a truck to hold the coveted annual title.

The competition to choose the magazine’s Pickup Truck of the Year takes place over five days and 1,000 miles, providing the panel of seven judges an opportunity to experience every plausible condition from city gridlock to technical trails. Judges tested each vehicle’s performance, comfort, and design.

The Ram Rebel is equipped with factory lift, 33-inch tires, standard air suspension, Bilstein shocks, skid plates, tow hooks and other off-road-ready features, the Ram 1500 Rebel appeals to the truck owner looking for a less beaten path, according to the automaker.

The Ram 1500 delivers 29 mpg fuel efficiency, advanced technology, and unique features. Ram 1500 is available with a choice of engines, including a 3.0L EcoDiesel, a 5.7L HEMI V-8 engine, or a Pentastar V-6.

The 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel starts at $42,790 not including $1,195 destination charge.
