Mopar ’16 Ram Rebel

Just after Christmas, we took delivery of a 2016 Ram Rebel 1500 4×4 Mopar ’16 Edition…one of only 500 built. We’ll have a test-drive report in the near future, but for now here is a gallery of some of the vehicle’s options and features.

Ford Ranger Splash

1993 Ford Ranger Splash

By Don Sikora IICollectible Automobile Magazine

Note: The following story was excerpted from the August 2016 issue of Collectible Automobile magazine.

Introduced for 1983, the Ford Ranger compact pickup’s first major redesign didn’t come until 1993. The previous truck’s simple, straight lines were replaced with smooth, subtle curves, but overall the Ranger still resembled a smaller-scale F-150. Then Ford added more style later in the ’93 model year with the addition of the Ranger Splash.

Fact: Chevrolet has produced three generations of hybrid pickup trucks.

Fact: The most recent Silverado Hybrid is, by far, the most compelling example.

The folks in Hollywood know a good thing when they see it; that’s why there’s a sequel or follow-up to virtually every blockbuster movie or TV show. Like so many things in life however, not all spin-offs meet with success.

2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon

While car sales haven’t exactly set the world on fire under the Fiat-Chrysler partnership, truck (and Jeep) sales have been going great guns. So it’s not particularly surprising that Ram has made only minor changes for 2017, which perhaps is for the best. Notable, however, is a new 2500 that wears graphics that recall those from one of its earlier – and rather famous — Dodge siblings.
