The special edition Ram Rebel Black is based off the Ram 1500 pickup chassis is spec’d with what Jim Morrison, head of the Ram brand for North America, called an “aggressive” off-road package.
By contrast, the electric-powered Chrysler Portal concept, with an estimated range of 250 miles, is geared to be a more “social community” vehicle, equipped with an in-vehicle wireless network and semi-autonomous driving functions.
Tim Kuniskis, FCA-North America’s head of North America passenger car brands (Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT), said the Chrysler Portal concept is designed for the Millennial generation. “It is reflective of their personality, offers value and flexibility, integrates advanced technology and is socially responsible,” he explained.
