Well it is not a truck in a traditional sense of the word but it has the basis of one. It actually adds some different kinds of characteristics that make it more like a crossover vehicle, but officially it is a truck. What we get with the latest release from Dodge is one of the most handsome looking trucks in the market but also with strong performance features and characteristics. The vehicle does provide us with wonderful specs except good looks.
The concept of this new modern age era of trucks was perceived back in 2006 when the first concept vehicle was showcased by dodge and the Chicago Auto Show. Their plan was to make trucks which are modern and useful at the same time but also come with their strongest feature as well, power. It took some time for this concept to catch on and now we are finally getting the first production vehicle which will use these cues and characteristics that have been showcased 10 years ago. The Rampage will be the first car which will adopt these features and Dodge promises to make more of them for the future.
This is truly a futuristic concept and a very adapt one as well. It is a revolutionary idea and many people are asking themselves why has the production vehicle been released only now when the idea as present for such a long time already. But better late than never, right? The 2016 Dodge Rampage is a promising new vehicle and one which will attract a lot of attending. Inform yourself about the currently available stats in this review and see how the car will fare.
2016 Dodge Rampage exterior
The look of the 2016 Dodge Rampage will be one of its important assets. It will be using the design that is not much different from the concept that was previously released. It uses the styling cues very nicely and is without a doubt one of the most handsomest looking trucks ever to be released. With the styling cues taken from the concept, there will be some additions that are going to be added to the production car. Power-deployable running boards, for instance, is a feature that has been added to make the entrance to the cargo bay much accessible and easier. As the shape and size of the car has remained mostly the same it offers a bit more cargo space than before. Many people agree that this truck is actually made for people who are not into trucks as it offers characteristics of a truck but does not come with a traditional look of a one.
The front part, actually the headlights and the mask, have a classic design to them. The rear doors have been made with a slide in order to enable easier access to the inside. Casters have been made much more aggressive which enhances the look in a large scale. What is something that also enhances the aggressiveness of the vehicle is the new wheels. It uses an alloy wheel to the look and adds 22-inch ones to them. It does not only make the car look much more imposing but it also increases the stability of the vehicle. You can easily tread through rough terrain without any problems and use the vehicle for any off-road endeavor that you plan on.
The most changed and unortodxed part of the vehicle is the inside. The 2016 Dodge Rampage does not come with a typical surrounding that a truck has on the inside. It combines usefulness and comfort, but focuses on the comfort part even more. The inside is an exclusive surrounding which adds some upscale inside trimmings and uses it to its maximum potential. The seats now incorporate some fine leather materials that are not always present inside a truck. It enhances the comfort levels and makes the cabin a much more interesting and a much comfortable surrounding for the passengers. The two back seats are also foldable and provide additional cargo space if needed.
The controls cluster has been designed to be easy to use or user friendly. It has added some fine touch surfaces as well and has laid out all the controls in a logical and useful way. You will not get to ingrained into the dash when driving and it will not affect your performance on the road at all. Headspace and leg space is abundant and you can easily stretch your legs and will not feel cramped at all when driving inside. The technology part has also been something that was enhanced and will present the advantage of this car. Adding a touchscreen on the control panel makes everything much easier and the connectivity of the vehicle is also enhanced. Upgraded navigation and audio systems make your life better while the enhanced safety features also provide a much safer environment for the passengers inside the Rampage.
There are some news inside the car or actually under the hood as the Dodge Rampage is going to add a new engine option this time. the 2016 model will use the 5.7 liter V8 HEMI engine with Chrysler‘s Multi-Displacement System. It will of course come with an all-wheel drive It combines with a 5-speed automatic transmission to make the shifting abilities even grander. This engine options enables the Rampage to achieve 345 horsepower, but there are some talks that say that a diesel engine is going to be available as well. The present option is really suitable as it provide high end towing capabilities and an overall great performance for the car so other engine options may be provided for the future but for now we don’t see that in needs to change.
Price and release date
Well this is still a work in progress so the official release date has still not been announced. We are expecting that the car will be released come next year, actually early come next year. The price range for the base level of the 2016 Dodge Rampage is around some $30 000 – $40 000 which is a pretty decent price margin for a modern vehicle like this one.
