2006 Dodge Rampage Concept

Ram hasn’t yet released any teaser images of the new Ram Dakota, but it’s certain to be a more conventional looking pickup than the 2006 Dodge Rampage Concept shown here.

Having sold more than 700,000 vehicles in the 2019 calendar year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Ram truck brand has suddenly become the eighth best-selling nameplate in the U.S. Though the Ram line includes a pair of commercial vans, most of that sales volume comes from full-size pickup trucks.  In fact, the big truck news for 2019 was Ram overtaking Chevrolet in large pickup truck sales for the first time ever.

The 2015 Jeep Chief Concept is based on the current Wrangler Unlimited. It’s clearly a throwback design exercise that’s more retro-rugged than luxurious, but it does suggest how vintage Grand Wagoneer styling elements could be applied to an all-new model.

In 2014, Jeep sold more than 1 million vehicles worldwide, a new record for the brand. And Jeep’s parent company has even greater ambitions for the future: A Fiat-Chrysler five-year product plan unveiled in May 2014 predicts sales increasing to 1.9 million Jeeps in 2018. The plan also indicates a return to the 7-passenger 3-row SUV market in the form of a revived Grand Wagoneer model. The range-topping 2019 Grand Wagoneer would reprise a legendary name from Jeep’s past, and move the brand further upmarket to take on luxury-brand SUVs in every way—price included.
