The Dodge Rampage was a subcompact, unibody pickup truck based on Chrysler's L platform and manufactured from 1982 to 1984. First released as a 1982 model, the Rampage was later joined by its rebadged variant, the Plymouth Scamp. The Rampage borrows the car's unibody construction and the front fascia from the sporty 024/Charger variant. It was available with a Chrysler built and designed 2.2 L carbureted straight-4 engine with 96 hp (71 kW) and a curb weight of around 2400 lb (1089 kg). In the first year it had leisurely performance due to the 4- speed manual transmission along with a 3-speed automatic transmission. Performance was improved with the introduction of a 5-speed manual transmission in 1983. The truck had a load capacity of 1, 145 lb (520 kg), for a true half ton rating. This compared favorably to General Motors' Chevrolet El Camino. It must be noted, however, that the Volkswagen Rabbit Sportruck and Subaru Brat were the Rampage's only real competition.Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
