TheDodge Rampagewas asubcompact,unibody[1]coupe utilitybased onChrysler'sL platformand manufactured from 1982–1984 byDodge. First released as a 1982 model, he Rampage was later joined by itsrebadgedvariant, hePlymouth Scamp.

The Rampage borrows the car's unibody construction and the front fascia from the sporty024/Chargervariant.

It was available with a Chrysler built and designed 2.2Lcarburetedstraight-4engine with 96hp (72kW) and a curb weight of around 2,400lb (1,100kg). In the first year, t had leisurely performance due to the four-speedmanual transmissionalong with a three-speed automatic transmission.

Performance was improved with the introduction of a five-speedmanual transmissionin 1983. The truck had a load capacity of 1,145lb (519kg), or a true "half ton" rating. This compared favorably toGeneral Motors'Chevrolet El Camino's rating of 1250 lbs. TheVolkswagen Rabbit SportruckandSubaru BRATwere the Rampage's only real competition in the United States market.

The Dodge Rampage was based on the popularDodge OmniandPlymouth Horizon. Their fuel economy (21 MPG city/29 MPG highway, ccording to the EPA) and price were good for the time.[citation needed]The Rampage'sfront-wheel driveconfiguration was a source of either love or hate depending on one's preferences. A front-wheel drive layout is not usually used for trucks in North America; however, t gave the Rampage great road-holding and traction when unladen without the "fish-tailing" that comes with most rear-wheel-drive pickups. In short, he Rampage drove less like a truck and more like a compact car. A re-badged version, he Plymouth Scamp, as only sold in 1983. The Rampage lasted three years before being dropped from production after the 1984 model year. There was a "Shelby Rampage" built by Chrysler/Shelby engineers in their free time for Carroll Shelby, ut the there is no official record of the existence of such a vehicle.

While a radical and unique design, he Dodge Rampage (17,636 sold in 1982, 033 in 1983, 1,732 in 1984, ts final season) didn't take off in the market as had been expected. Its Plymouth Scamp clone would only last for one year—1983. Sales totals for the Scamp were 2184 "base" models and 1,380 in GT trim, lmost all of which were taken from its Dodge twin. The market for "car-trucks" was fast drying up in the mid-1980s as one after another was dropped from automakers' North American product lines. Even the El Camino was not immune and it was also withdrawn from production before the decade was through.
