Love my Rebel

The Rebel is a great truck. The ride with its Air Suspension is a nice feel being that its a truck. The interior has a nice touch to it with the red and black colors throughout the inside.

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: Air ride Suspension handles great, very smooth
  • Power: 5.7L Hemi V8 has the power when you need it the most
  • Interior Space: legroom and head room is great in the rear as well as the front

Cons

  • Fuel Economy: Miami driving, normal accelerations and braking, i average 12-13mpg combined hwy and city
