Prospective buyers were required to deposit R$ 1,000 (or about $208 USD). Furthermore, due to the overwhelming response, an additional 1,100 requests were accepted, with customers fortunate enough to receive the Elite Pack, a package of three optional items at no extra charge. The Elite Pack includes the Harman Kardon® premium sound system, a passenger seat with 12-way electrical adjustments, and internal ambient LED lighting. Normally priced at R$ 6,000 (or about $1,250 USD), this complimentary upgrade further enhances the luxury and convenience of the Rampage.

The Rampage boasts the title of South America’s most powerful and fastest pickup truck ever produced. Equipped with the Hurricane4 gasoline turbo engine, generating 272 horsepower and 400 Nm (295 lb.-ft.) of torque, the Rampage R/T accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 6.9 seconds, with a top speed of 136 mph. Additionally, the Rebel and Laramie versions offer the option of 170 horsepower and 380 Nm (280 lb.-ft.) Multijet turbo diesel engine.
