Among the most elaborate designs found in mass production, the new one-piece wheel incorporates matte black painted accent pockets and multi-angled surfaces linked to the Rebel’s off-road bias. It includes an optional backup camera, providing a better field of vision when manoeuvring. A new tri-fold tonneau cover is embossed with the Ram logo, and bed lighting is now available - bright LEDs shine from the rear corners next to the tailgate, giving owners better visibility when the workday lasts into the evening.
