Trucks serve Virginia Beach on the road and at the worksite every day, but what about those who like to off-road? For off-roading enthusiasts, you’ve got two great options in the form of the 2020 RAM 1500 Rebel vs. the 2020 Ford Raptor. However, in the Raptor vs. Rebel battle, who reigns supreme? We have to hand it to the 2020 RAM Rebel for being a simply more rugged vehicle that can take on your outdoor activities. Check out our Rebel vs. Raptor breakdown and take a look at our tool to value your trade.

Rebel vs. Raptor: The Price 

Off-road adventuring in Chesapeake doesn’t have to be a huge expense. When you compare the Raptor vs. the Rebel, you find two off-roading trucks that will serve you well. However, price is always something you will want to keep in mind, so here’s our comparative view of the Rebel vs. Raptor price situation:

  • The 2020 RAM Rebel is the more affordable of the two choices, with a starting MSRP of $44,240. This is quite the thrifty and cost-effective choice for off-roading drivers.
  • On the other hand, the 2020 Ford Raptor comes in at a much pricier $53,205 with less flexibility for a more spare model with fewer bells and whistles.

If it came down to a few hundred dollars, we would say that the RAM Rebel and Ford Raptor are comparable overall. However, a difference of about $9,000 says a lot, so you can pick the Rebel and upgrade it significantly and still come in under the Raptor’s starting price.

Rebel vs. Raptor: Engine Power

  • The Ford F-150 Raptor offers a 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine with 4×4 drivetrain. While EcoBoost is an appealing addition, it still offers less efficiency than the EcoDiesel configuration on the Rebel.
  • The RAM 1500 Rebel has a 3.6L V6 gasoline engine to start, but you can go up to a 5.7L V8 gasoline engine or an immensely powerful and efficient 3.0L V6 diesel engine that offers up to 24 miles on the highway.
