Since Dodge presented the concept of the studio, the pickup model of the Rampage, there are all-inclusive speculations about the appearance of the serial model. The concept was introduced in 2006 in Chicago. Many expect the company to offer the 2018 Dodge Rampage series in response to new competition models in the segment. This would be a return to another known model. Namely, in the 80s of the last century, Dodge produced a subcompact pickup truck called Rampage.
When presented Rampage concept, opened many questions about his fate. Although many expect his entry into the serial production, it is not the most certain. The concept has the same dimensions as the RAM 1500 pickup truck. However, the dimensions are greater than the Dodge Rampage, which was previously produced. This opens up two possibilities. The first is that the 2018 Dodge Rampage will be offered as a separate version of the current Dodge RAM pickup. Another solution is to reduce the dimensions of the future model in order to complement the company’s offer in the pickup segment.
2018 Dodge Rampage Specs and Features
Under the hood should be found the same engine that is seen in the concept version. It’s a 5.7-liter HEMI V6 engine with Chrysler’s Multi-Displacement System. The basic offer will be a version with FWD, which is not characteristic of this type of vehicle.
The 2018 Rampage series is expected to have all the systems and benefits that are seen in the concept of the model. The presented features, with the concept, are extremely interesting. This could be the first pickup to use Stow ‘n’ Go features specific to minivan models. This system makes it possible to overlap and move the seat in order to increase the useful space within the vehicle.
Dodge’s exterior designer, Scott Krugger, said that the Rampage concept is designed for people wanting to drive a pickup truck, and they do not have the feeling of being in such a vehicle. He added that Dodge Rampage was designed for non-traditional truck buyers. In any case, the vehicle has a very modern design and innovative and non-traditional solutions.
The possibility of increasing bed space is also interesting. Combined with a retractable rear window and midgate, this allows the bed space to expand into the cabin, at the expense of the passenger space. There is also a luggage compartment composed of waterproof materials, as well as an integrated loading ramp.
The 2018 Dodge Rampage will feature a muscular and stylish front-end design, with double-muscle flaked fenders. In addition to innovative design and interesting solutions, the car features exceptional functionality and comfort. All in all, the Rampage makes an excellent combination of performance full-size pickup truck and comfort and comfort of the family minivan.
