The 2021 Rebelle Rally will include eight days of intense competition across more than 1,500 miles of Nevada, Arizona, and California desert. The race will take place on October 7 at the Hoover Dam in Nevada and ending on October 16 in California’s Imperial Sand Dunes.
What model does Nissan bring to the race? A unique 2022 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X upgraded with Nismo Off-Road parts – sans the tent and other accessories, of course. In particular, Nissan’s entry will arrive with a distinctive livery.
The car participating in this Rebelle Rally is the 2022 Frontier with the unique Hardbody racer livery. This is the colors used on the body are inspired by the Nissan Hardbody champion off-road racers from the 1980s.
“Nissan has been a staple of off-road endurance racing since the 1960s, and the Hardbody racers of the ’80s remain some of the most successful and recognizable trucks ever,” said Michael Soutter, vice president, Nissan Aftersales, Americas.
But interestingly, the race won’t be won by the famous uniform, but with Nismo Off-Road performance parts fitted into the mix. The one-off Frontier will be equipped with Nismo Off-Road parts that include 4-inch lights, performance exhaust, suspension kit, and Axis wheels.
Among car companies, Nissan is the only automaker that has participated in the all-women race. This time, the company will work with Team Wild Grace again, with co-captains Sedona Blinson and Lyn Woodward at the helm. Nissan has worked with them on previous appearances in the Rebelle Rally.
