2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn vs Rebel
One of the great advantages that a model like the 2019 Ram 1500 brings to the road is its many different options. There are seven trim levels available on this new Ram truck, and all of them offer confident capability. In this 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn vs Rebel comparison we are looking at two mid-range models that slot between the entry-level Tradesman and HFE models and the elite Laramie, Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims.
The key difference between these two models is that the Rebel has been designed for premium off-roading. It comes in a single body style* and bed length and has suspension features and accessories that help make it bold off the road. However, it can be limiting in some cases if drivers need more towing or bed options. In contrast, the 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn is available in both Quad Cab and Crew Cab models and with 5-foot-7-inch or 6-foot-4-inch bed lengths.

Off-Roading vs Versatility with the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel and Big Horn
If drivers are looking for versatile driving options in this 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn vs Rebel comparison, the Big Horn model may be a solid choice. Both of these trucks are available with a 3.6-liter V-6 with eTorque electrification or a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 with or without eTorque electrification. However, the Ram Big Horn has a lower starting price, can offer more towing in the Quad Cab model, more axle ratio options.
Truck shoppers interested in off-road confidence rather than work site or commuting versatility may find the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel more appealing. This model comes standard with many all terrain performance features, like an electronic locking differential, Bilstein shocks, a one-inch factory lift, tow hooks, and skid plates for the transfer case, steering system, oil pan, and gas tank. The 2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn is available with a 4x4 Off-road Package with many of these features, but they are not as simply integrated.
You will be able to see these two models coming thanks to their unique design cues. Each of these trucks has different grille and headlight designs and unique model badging. The 2019 Ram Rebel is also available with two-tone exterior paint and comes standard with a performance hood.
