Take a look at this amazing concept of the Dodge Rampage pickup

American truck Dodge Rampage is designed for those who did not want a pickup, but who needed additional practicality of the body. The concept was presented at the Chicago Motor Show (2006).

Why did we remember this car now? Many automakers have no problem attributing the term “coupe” to their models, which not only have rear doors, but do not have the smooth roofline you expect from a genuine coupe.

From budget cars, such as the Renault Arkana, to expensive models, such as the Mercedes CLS, the meaning of the word “coupe” has lost its essence.

Over the years, the auto industry has seen a rise and fall in body style that tried to blend the coupe with something completely different. The concept of a coupe was born in Australia and became popular in North America with the advent of the Chevy El Camino and Ford Ranchero models in the late 1950s. Soon in the early 80s, Dodge tried this recipe with the short-lived Rampage, which was only sold from 1982 to 1984 model year.

Conceived as a competitor to the Japanese Honda Ridgeline pickup, the American Dodge Ribage was designed with a massive cargo platform. The car could boast a solid body structure, front-wheel drive, as well as a 5.7-liter HEMI engine with 340 horsepower and 288 Nm of torque.

Conventional front doors were combined with sliding rear doors, providing easy entry into the cab due to the lack of conventional front struts. The somewhat odd interior emphasized Dodge’s attempt to make the Rampage look more like a passenger car, rather than a real “workhorse,” while the front passenger seat and rear bench are folded into the floor to maximize space.

Not so long ago, we wrote that a new version of the sedan Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat.
