There is an increasing number of automakers taking part in the Rebelle Rally. Volkswagen ID.4 AWD will debut at the United States' first off-road navigation race raid. Rhys Millen Racing and Tanner Foust Racing customized four AWD Pros. This new racer will benefit from Millen and Foust's previous off-road racing experience with the EV.

On the Baja peninsula, they were responsible for the ID.4 1st Edition RWD that participated in the Norra 1000 earlier this year. Emily Winslow will be in control of the new ID.4 AWD Pro, which is being powered by Mercedes Lilienthal and equipped with modified suspension components, tubular control arms, skid plates, and battery protection.

It also has a Thule roof rack that holds an additional set of spare Yokohama Geolandar A/T tires for the Rebelle Rally. The powertrain will remain unchanged, with 295 hp (299 PS/220 kW) and 339 lb-ft (460 Nm) of torque. Even though the ID.4 AWD Pro's EPA mileage is 249 miles (400 km), it may vary in racing situations.

The ID.4's wrap was created by Salt Lake City artist Liz Kuz, who was influenced by the race's desert environment, which begins at the Hoover Dam in Nevada and continues through Arizona before culminating more than 1,500 miles (2,500 km) later in California.

Mercedes Lilienthal is the Editor-at-Large for TREAD Magazine and a freelance journalist who has written for publications such as The New York Times, Forbes Wheels, and Crankshaft Culture. She has previously competed in the race, in 2018. Winslow, a project coordinator from Puyallup, Washington, was a podium finisher in 2018 before returning in 2019.
