The Ram brand is set to debut its latest creation, the 2024 Ram Rampage, designed specifically for the South American market. The new pickup is said to be a game-changer for both the brand and the region, and it has been developed with the help of Ram engineers in Auburn Hills, Michigan. This marks the first time Ram has officially confirmed the new mono-block pickup, similar to the popular Fiat Toro.
The Rampage will be powered by a 2.0-liter GME-T4 turbocharged inline-four-cylinder with flex-fuel capability, with an optional 2.0-liter turbodiesel inline-four-cylinder also being available. The turbodiesel should be the launch engine. Being a mono-block pickup truck, meaning that the bed and the cab are connected, and it shares much of its underpinnings with the popular Jeep® Commander (H1) D-SUV. However, the Rampage has unique springs and shock absorbers recalibrated to handle its greater weight and dimensions.
According to Brazilian automotive publication Autos Segredos, the interior of the Rampage will feature a sizeable horizontal Uconnect 5-based touchscreen and elevated center console. The gear change will be completed by rotary dial, just like the Ram 1500. The model will have a slightly larger wheelbase and length above 5 meters (197 inches), with a width close to 1.85 meters (72.8 inches) of the Jeep Commander and a height close to 1.80 meters (70.8 inches).
Ram has kept details of the Rampage under wraps until now, with the project shrouded in secrecy. However, this pickup truck is highly anticipated by the South American market, with Ram hoping to make a significant impact in the region. The brand has been working hard to develop a compact pickup that meets the needs of South American drivers.
The Rampage is expected to launch with four trims, entry-level Big Horn, Laramie, Rebel and Rebel Night Edition.
For the brand in the South American market, the 2024 Ram Rampage appears to be a true game-changer. The Rampage looks to add more capability, luxury, and power than its Fiat Toro cousin. It also looks to bridge the gap between other Ram badged Fiat pickups already in the market, thanks to its Ram 1500-inspired design. Unfortunately, the truck won’t reach the United States or Canada markets anytime soon.
