Truck enthusiasts are talking about this old nameplate for years. The old pickup truck has been produced during the 80’s and considering current trends in the automotive industry that are all about reviving old nameplates, this seems like a perfect opportunity to see it once again. According to the latest reports, expect to see an all-new truck already in the next year, as 2019 Ram Rampage. Another thing that indicates Rampage’s arrival is the fact that Ram doesn’t have a mid-size truck currently in its offer.
This segment is becoming popular in the U.S. again. Chevy Colorado is present for some time, while Ford is also bringing back its famous Range pickup truck. Not to mention popular Japanese models like Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Navara. The latter one is about to come completely new petty soon. All this clearly indicated that the new Ram Rampage is about to come pretty soon, probably in the next year.
How will the 2019 Ram Rampage look like?
At the moment, it is still hard to tell something more precise about the 2019 Ram Rampage. The company keeps everything a secret. Even though we haven’t got any official confirmation yet, several reliable reports suggest that the new model is on its way. According to our reliable sources, this will be a pretty common mid-size truck. The company will apply plenty of new design solutions that were premiered in the new-generation Ram 1500, which came earlier in the year.
Ram is a part of FCA, so expect several design solutions borrowed from other companies. This primarily refers to the architecture. It seems pretty logical for new 2019 Ram Rampage to use the same platform as the recently redesigned Wrangler, especially if we consider that the legendary SUV is about to get its truck version soon. The new platform brings a lot of improvement in various aspects, including weight saving, improved driving dynamics and much more.
2019 Ram Rampage Styling
In terms of styling, the new 2019 Ram Rampage will completely rely on the company’s newest design language. The new styling philosophy has been presented with the new Ram 1500 and it comes with a little bit boxier approach compared to the previous generation of these trucks, though there is still a lot of curvy lines. The new Rampage should feature pretty much the same shape as 1500 series, just in a smaller package. Of course, expect to see few distinctive details as well.
On the inside, expect a new cabin layout, which will take the new 1500 as inspiration, but also borrow some design solutions from a new Wrangler. This mostly refers to the dashboard design, gadgetry, other tech features etc.
2019 Ram Rampage Engines
In terms of powertrain, this truck will rely on FCA’s familiar units. The base model should feature a familiar 3.6-liter V6 Pentastar unit, which is good for about 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Also, we should see a new super-efficient four-cylinder unit available as an optional feature. This engine features a displacement of 2.0 liters and max output of 270 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. It might feature a similar amount of power as the V6, but fuel economy is that better that we won’t even compare these two units.
Finally, expect to see a diesel engine in the offer as well, Without any doubt, that should be a familiar 3.0-liter engine that is good for about 240 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.
When will 2019 Ram Rampage Arrive?
The new 2019 Ram Rampage could come already in the next year. Base models will probably go somewhere between 20.000 and 25.000 dollars.
