Ram Trucks All-Women Rebelle Rally

Hear from Nena Barlow, Rebelle Rally Team #129 Driver, as she talks about this unique 1,000-mile navigation-only competition called the Rebelle Rally.

Barlow is driving a stock 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel to the finish line with her navigator Kande Jacobsen, who is only able to plot their course using a map and compass.  Currently on the home stretch, they are expected to make it to San Diego, California or basecamp before crossing the finish line.

“There’s no conversation, there’s no chitchat in the truck. Its constant work, it’s constantly planning the next step,” said Barlow.

With long hard days in the truck, the Rebel provides for the best ride with great air suspension. “It’s been a fabulous vehicle. It’s very comfortable,” says Barlow.

Ram Trucks Featured in Wolverine 3

For fans of Wolverine, the new trailer for the Wolverine 3 Logan movie is out and Ram Trucks make a prominent feature in the film.

Due out on March 3, 2017, the YouTube screenshot above shows a herd of Ram Trucks pursuing the hero named Logan in Wolverine 3.

Viewers can see four Ram Trucks outfitted with black brush guards and racks built by Motobilt of Dothan, Alabama, a company that specializes in outfitting and designing vehicles with off-road parts.

A studio representative from 20th Century Fox approached owner Dan DuBose to outfit four Ram trucks for the next Wolverine movie. DuBose did not know they were for the movie until after the trucks were on site and said, “I was pretty excited about it once I found out it was for Wolverine. We didn’t know it was for Wolverine until the trucks were already there.”

DuBose and his team designed the brush guards and racks only based on an artist rendering. That wasn’t the only challenge, however. “One of the difficulties in building these trucks – we’re not allowed to drill holes or modify the trucks in any way that they can’t go back to stock,” DuBose said. “But yet we have to do all this work.”

Challenge accepted, DuBose and his team did a wonderful job of modifying the trucks with brush guards, racks, and giving them an armored appearance without drilling holes or cutting metal. DuBose said his mechanics worked hard to get the details of the trucks for Wolverine 3 just right. “There’s a since of pride about it,” he said.

In his family, he says they have at least a dozen Rams. It’s in the family. “Its like Ram fever if you want to call it,” he says.

Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver Edition Updates for 2017

Debuting this weekend at the State Fair of Texas is Ram’s most popular truck in Texas, the Ram 1500 Lone Star. With brand new updates, the 2017 Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver Edition will greet dozens of Texans with features designed just for them.

The first update is the name.  Ram has added the word “Silver” to the existing 1500 Lone Star Edition. The Silver Edition call sign will be highlighted by adding extra bright chrome to the exterior and added updates inside.

The most obvious change on the exterior will be a new chrome grille with the brand’s crosshairs, plus chrome “Wave Mesh” inserts in the four quadrants in the grille. Chrome 20-inch wheels, shiny belt moldings, chrome mirror caps, and chrome side steps will also be added.  Inside the grille will be a cool design of the “Lone Star Silver Edition” badge which mimics those worn by the Texas Rangers, the state’s famed law enforcement officers.

Interior updates include new seats updated in either cloth or vinyl, and with the color schemes Canyon Brown/Light Frost Beige or Black/Diesel Gray.

Truck buyers may choose from 4×4 or 4×2, as well as any three available engines (V-6 gas, V-8 gas, and V-6 turbo-diesel).  The new edition will only be offered in the crew cab configuration.

The all-new Ram 1500 Lone Star Silver Edition goes on sale later this year with a starting price of $40,315.
