The last Dodge Ramcharger was sold in 1993.
The truck was available in Mexico until 2001.
The Ramcharger needs to make a comeback.
And by coolest, we mean a more faithful interpretation of one of the great trucks/SUVs from the past than the upcoming Ford Bronco. The Dodge Ramcharger was introduced in 1974 and was assembled on a shortened pickup frame from the era. Although the Ramcharger was only sold until 1993 through two generations in Canada and the US, they are still highly coveted trucks. An artist’s rendering of what a new Ramcharger could look like has us thinking fans would respond with an open wallet if it was to be built.
The Dodge Ramcharger was created to compete with the Chevrolet K5 Blazer and GMC Jimmy, introduced a few years earlier. Both of these trucks forced Ford to move the Bronco from cute compact off-roader to full-size SUV in the late 70s. For many real SUV and truck fans, these three monster 2-door trucks are inimitable. The rendering prepared by wb.artist20 and shared on Instagram would undoubtedly reconquer many hearts.

? Here’s my modern version of the Dodge Ramcharger. The 2nd gen was the best design to me mostly because of the curved window and subtle rear fender flares, so those are the only things I implemented to the current Ram pickup. Also added a huge panoramic sun/moon roof to compliment the curved window. • • • • • • #dodgeramcharger #dodgeram #ram1500 #dodge #dodgeram1500 #ram #trucksofinstagram #truckporn #cardesign #redesign #modernization #blazer #bronco #cardesignworld #cardesigncommunity #cardesigner #concept #conceptcar #instadesigner
The artist made a point to reproduce the boxy flares over the rear wheels and was inspired by the curved rear side window as found on the 2nd generation Ramcharger. The use of a Ram 1500 Rebel as the basis for the truck is brilliant and has us seriously wondering why FCA hasn’t already begun production.
