After the recent redesign of the famous Ram 1500 full-size truck, FCA is preparing a lot of new models and version based on the same vehicle. Of course, heavy-duty series are first to come to our minds, but it looks like there will be much more. One of the most interesting novelties will be a new truck with an old name. It will come as 2023 Dodge Rampage. Older generations probably remember this nameplate, which was used for a small vehicle that combined design characteristics of a sports car and pickup truck. This time, we are about to see something completely different. It looks like the new model will be heavily based on the recently redesigned Ram 1500.
- Plenty of power
- Amazing handling
- Attractive styling
- Still just a rumor
- High price tag is a certain thing
When it comes to base design characteristics, the 2023 Dodge Rampage will have many things in common with the Ram 1500. Moreover, it will be some kind of a special version of the famous truck, which will focus on performances. The two models will use the same platform and feature pretty much the same mechanics. Even the visual aspect of the new model is about to have lots of things familiar with the famous truck. Still, this will be a more road-oriented vehicle. It should be some kind of a performance truck, which will come with numerous chassis upgrades. Expect a completely new suspension, which will provide much lower ground clearance. Also, expect extensive use of lightweight materials, for additional savings.
Although primarily a sports truck, the interior of 2023 Dodge Rampage will be very comfortable, according to the latest reports. We are about to see a familiar cabin layout, which indicates lots of quality materials. Also, count on plenty of space. This version will most likely come in some kind of a double-cab body style. Single-row versions definitely won’t be in the offer. In terms of tech features, expect to see pretty much everything that Ram 1500 offers, including latest gadgetry, large touchscreen, drive-assist systems etc.
This will be a hi-performance truck. Naturally, we expect to see something very powerful under the hood. The current Ram 1500 comes with a familiar 5.7-liter V8 engine and the same one could find the place under the hood of 2023 Dodge Rampage. Still, we would probably see some tunings, to something like 400 horsepower. On the other side, many reports suggest a bigger 6.4-liter unit and max power of more than 450 horsepower.
2020 Dodge Rampage Release Date and Price
At the moment, the 2023 Dodge Rampage is just a rumor. We are still waiting to hear something from the Dodge official. Therefore, speculations about the price seem to be useless. One thing is certain. If this model arrives, it definitely won’t be cheap.
