Ram walked away just shy of an overall win at the Rebelle Rally, a seven-plus day off-road event that demands the most from bone-stock, off-road trucks and SUVs. At the end of the 750-mile journey, the Ram Power Wagon placed second, but took home the “Bone Stock” award.
The Ram Power Wagon team, composed of Nena Barlow and Chris Mayne, said the Power Wagon “ate up the terrain with ease” and were proud of the truck’s performance overall. Ram Truck backed the team.
Trucks and SUVs eligible for the “Bone Stock” award must complete the rally in a vehicle that is exactly the same as it would be after rolling out of the factory. Teams may only change the tires for something more aggressive, but even the lone modification is limited to the factory tire size.
The Rebelle Rally is an all-women event and a demanding one at that. There are no GPS systems, no pre-running, no anything. Over seven days, teams comprised of two women (one driver, one navigator) use maps, compasses and road books to navigate to multiple checkpoints in a prescribed amount of time.
If the Rebelle Rally doesn’t highlight how capable the Ram Power Wagon is, we’re not sure what does.
