Ram 1500 Rebel OTG Concept
Inside the Rebel OTG truck bed — easily accessible via the unique tailgate — is a retractable battery-powered cooler and kitchen unit with a gas-powered stove as well as a sink with an onboard water system. Power comes from deployable solar panels or a battery backup. A bed rack system is installed above the truck bed, making a perfect floor for the collapsible rooftop tent, accessed via a stowable ladder. “Unlike traditional ‘four-wheeling,’ in overlanding the journey is the final objective. The goal is to explore rather than conquer obstacles,” said Joe Dehner, the head of Ram Truck and Mopar Design. “This is why we developed this concept, to allow vehicle-supported, self-reliant adventure travel, typically exploring remote locations and interacting with other cultures. This is the vehicle that I’d like to have whenever I choose to go ‘off the grid,’” Dehner enthused.
