Nissan is the only automaker to have fielded a vehicle for each Rebelle Rally. The streak continues with the 2020 Nissan Frontier.

As the 2020 Rebelle Rally prepares for its 5th annual running that begins this week, founder Emily Miller and her support staff of more than 70 couldn’t be more thrilled. There are 36 teams registered to participate in the country’s longest competitive off-road navigation rally that will take place over 10 days along nearly 2,500 kilometers of spectacular backcountry. The only all-female rally in the U.S. will travel along a mix of dirt roads, off-road trails, and on sand dunes from Nevada to southern California.

One of the most exciting elements to this year’s event is the sextet of new vehicle entries that join the lineup from nine auto manufacturers. New are the all-electric Rivian R1T, 2020 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, 2021 Infiniti QX80, 2020 Nissan Frontier, 2021 Kia Telluride, and three 2021 Ford Bronco Sports.

There are two classes – 4×4 and Crossover—and, while it’s no surprise that Jeep vehicles have been the top model represented since the rally’s inception, a variety of different vehicles have been showcased at the rally, such as the Rolls Royce Cullinan, which took home a first-place finish in the Crossover class last year, with co-pilots Emme Hall and Rebecca Donaghe at the wheel.

“We are very grateful for such strong participation this year,” enthused Miller, who has added an Electrified Designation “test program” to the rally. “The world has been anxiously awaiting an opportunity to see the new Bronco line-up in action, and we’re excited to have three Bronco Sports showcasing their capabilities this year along with the five other new vehicles to the rally.”
