Can a Ram Rebel Keep up with a Power Wagon in the Arizona Desert?



Quote:
Itís easy to mistakenly write off a truck like the 2017 Ram 1500 Rebel as overrated when it comes to off-road prowess.

Thatís particularly true when one is parked amongst a herd of hulking Ram 2500 Power Wagons. After all, the Power Wagon is the be-all and end-all of trail-tackling trucks on the market, something AutoGuide.comís truck expert Stephen Elmer recently rediscovered at the launch of the refreshed 2017 version. Its ability to climb over rather than around obstacles is virtually unmatched by anything this side of a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

By contrast, the Rebel can at first glance look like little more than an appearance package thatís been added to Ramís half-ton truck ó and thatís because it mostly is. Except if you dig a little deeper, youíll find a pickup thatís packed with potential. Bilstein shocks at all four corners compliment a standard air suspension setup that gets an extra inch of ground clearance, while the limited-slip rear differential helps cut wheel spin in low-traction situations.

I read this review or article a week or so ago. I would venture to say No a Ram 1500 would not out do a Ram 2500 Power Wagon. If I could have gotten a Power Wagon with a 8ft Bed and a CTD 6.7L Engine i would have bought it. hands down. I do not believe that the Ram Rebel is strong enough to out work a Power Wagon. JMO

I have to agree with w6pea! The Power Wagon is much more truck and can handle any challenge. The Rebel is a souped up 1500 and is pretty AWEsome by it's own rights but these two trucks run in different circles. Its like comparing a Tundra to a Tacoma.

I see your point, but the article is seeing if it can keep up with, not out do the power wagon.

Agree with both sides on this one because why compare if your not trying to out do the competition.
