Dodge Rampage Concept

The Dodge Rampage was a concept car created by Chrysler that shares a name with a previous production vehicle that was marketed in the early 1980s. The Rampage Concept was first introduced at the 2006 Chicago Auto Show. The Rampage is as wide as the current production model Dodge Ram and is larger than its 1980s predecessor.

"The Rampage was designed as a truck for people who aren't into trucks. More of a nontraditional truck buyer," states exterior designer Scott Krugger.

The Rampage Concept proposes up to a 5.7 L Hemi engine with Chrysler's Multi-Displacement System; this engine is used in contemporary production vehicles such as the Dodge Ram and Dodge Charger. Like its namesake, the Rampage Concept uses front-wheel drive, unusual for a pickup truck. The Rampage has double-muscle flared fenders and 22 in aluminum wheels.

The Rampage (for being a truck) is very functional since it features the "Stow 'n Go" feature that all current Chrysler minivans feature, where the seats fold down flush with the cabin floor; this feature is a first for any Chrysler truck. It is also the first vehicle to feature the Stow 'n Go feature with a front passenger seat. Combined with a retractable rear window and midgate, this allows the bed space to expand into the cabin, at the expense of passenger space. Other distinguishing features of the Rampage Concept are a wide, flat, weatherproof cargo area beneath the bed/box and an integrated loading ramp.
