Few days ago, rumors about the new pickup truck manufactured by Dodge appeared. It is most likely that in the following 12 months the 2017 Dodge Rampage is going to be launched. The Rampage is a compact pickup, but is quite different than other trucks designed by Dodge and all other trucks on the North American market. If you wonder what is so unique about the Dodge Rampage 2017 you just need to look at the pictures. You easily notice it is a pickup truck, but quite unconventional. It takes some features after Toro, truck manufactured by Italian automaker, Fiat. Even though the exterior is not conventional, it can offer all things that a regular pickup offers. Interior is equipped with the latest gadgets and you don’t need to worry about what is under the hood. It has enough power to be used for tough works.
2017 Dodge Rampage Engine
There are several versions of the Dodge Rampage 2017 hence there will be more than one engine offered. The least powerful unit is the 1.4-liter inline-4. This is the standard engine and it can deliver 140 HP and 160 pound-feet of torque.
FWD is the only available option and the gearbox is going to be the six-speed automatic. The second unit is the 2.4l inline-4 with an output of 182 HP and 170 pound-feet of torque. This engine is quite different than the first one, not just in terms of power and torque. FWD and AWD are both available, while there are speculations about the nine-speed automatic gearbox.

Dodge Rampage 2017 Interior and Exterior
As you can see in the pictures, the design of new 2017 Dodge Rampage is quite unusual for a pickup truck, but we are sure this is only a bonus for the Rampage. It reminds us of Fiat Toro, but there are many distinctive features. It will also share some characteristics with some other cars, such as Ram Rebel. These two will probably have exactly the same grille. There are going to be four doors for every trim level.
The engineers decided to create more spacious truck than before, therefore they lowered the floor. The new Rampage is going to be able to conveniently accommodate five people. Some people believe the interior will be copy-paste from the Toro, but we will see if that is actually going to happen. Stay tuned with us, since we will publish more details about the interior as soon as we get new info.
