    Dodge Should Build This Challenger Hellcat 'El Camino'

    Can you imagine the tire carnage it would cause?

    A little-known competitor to the Chevrolet El Camino and Ford Ranchero was a Dodge with a much more aggressive-sounding name: Rampage. Unfortunately, the Dodge Rampage’s sales are best described using any word but "rampage.” It went out of production just two years after it went on sale in 1982 since Dodge only managed to sell a total of 37,371 units during its entire lifespan.

    Dodge revisited the nameplate when it brought the Dodge Rampage Concept, a truck with a softer body style intended to appeal to potential truck buyers who didn’t like the truck body style, to the 2006 Detroit Auto Show. It featured flared fenders, a 5.7-liter Hemi V8, and, weirdly, a front-wheel-drive layout.

    But that was then. In the here and now, we have access to easy horsepower and powerful rendering technology, which is why YouTuber The Sketch Monkey went ahead and created this rendering of a Dodge Rampage using a Dodge Challenger as the donor car. It looks better than previous attempts at a Dodge Rampage revival, to say the least.

    intriguing to say the least. I'm surprised that as many niche vehicles as Dodge/Chrysler/Fiatsler/Ram or whatever they'll be next does, that they haven't brought out something along the lines of this.

    Nothing along the lines of this should come before a convertible Challenger

    Convertible first, the funky stuff later.

    Do both. PLUS an El Challengo convertible. The best of both worlds. That would be the only one of its kind. Or make a removable roof panel, like the Jeepsters do.

    The problem w/ El Camino types is that everyone is going to say they want one, and once it comes out in the metal, no one is going to buy one. Keep it simple, offer a convertible @ a reasonable upcharge, there's a real market for that. Let the aftermarket outfitters take care of Rampaging or El Camino-ing the Challengers just like the aftermarket previously took care of turning them into convertibles.
