Ram Unveils 1500 Rebel Mojave Sand And 1500 Ignition Orange Sport

Prior to the Los Angeles Auto Show 2016 opening its doors, Ram has unveiled two limited-edition variants of the 1500 pickup truck.

The first of the two is dubbed the 1500 Rebel Mojave Sand, restricted to just 1,500 units. The name Mojave Sand refers to the exterior paint color and the model also includes matte black decals on the hood. Inside, the Mojave Sand edition includes an all-black interior.

The package can be purchased at $595 and can be optioned to any Rebel 1500 fitted with either the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 or 5.7-liter HEMI V8.

As for the Ram 1500 Ignition Orange Sport, it revives the name first introduced in 2015 as a different special edition Ram. The 2017 model is finished in a new shade of orange and also receives black graphics across the hood, black wheels and some black exterior trim.

The interior then comes complete with orange and black seats, orange Ram logos on the headrests and orange contrast stitching. Like the Mojave Sand, just 1,500 units of the Ignition Orange Sport will be produced but it will only be available with the V8.

Prices for the Mojave Sand start at $46,910 while the Ignition Orange Sport will set back customers at least $45,060.

    A more attractive option for me would be a traditional console mounted shifter like it previously had. The dash mounted rotary shifter is a definite no for me!
    I like the F-150 or Tacoma better.

      One benefit to putting the shifter on the dash is that you double the total cargo capacity of the truck with the giant storage buckets (both covered and uncovered) in the console.

      I found I got used to the shifter knob pretty quickly, but I too would prefer a console shifter.

      The front passenger footwell is another story. The transfer case hump takes away a lot of space to put your feet.

        True enough. I don’t need that much storage though and prefer a more traditional console shifter like the F-150 or Tacoma.
