Among tons of rumors about various comebacks of legendary models, the 2021 Dodge Ramcharger actually sounds reasonable. Simply, FCA has been without competitors in the full-size segment for a very long time and it would be great to see a model that can compete with the Ford Expedition and Chevy Tahoe. At this point, the company is still quiet on this matter, but unofficial reports are becoming more and more frequent these days.
Therefore, we can only speculate about the possible 2021 Dodge Ramcharger. If it arrives, some things are pretty easy to predict, such as base design, mechanics etc. Things under the hood are also quite easy to predict, as well as the interior. So far, many reports were suggesting that such competitors would come from Jeep, which makes perfect sense. We may see one of these, but seeing both of them wouldn’t be a surprise either. We may see the new model already in the next year.
2021 Dodge Ramcharger Design
If we look at the previous models that used this nameplate, it was always about a large SUV. Therefore, it’s quite easy to predict how the 2021 Dodge Ramcharger would look like. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the size. Without any doubt, this would be a full-size SUV, designed to compete with models like Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition, as well as with Toyota Sequoia, Nissan Armada etc.
Therefore, you may expect a wheelbase around 120 inches. Naturally, we talk about a body-on-frame platform, so it’s not hard to presume the 2021 Dodge Ramcharger would have a lot of things in common with Ram 1500. The famous pickup truck has been redesigned last year and the new platform would be used for the Ramcharger as well. Still, we would expect to see a couple of upgrades, especially in terms of the chassis setup, as it would be logical to see an independent suspension setup.
When it comes to aesthetics, we are pretty sure that the new SUV would feature the same front end as Ram 1500. This means the same front face, which has brought a completely new approach of the brand that has been using that well-known crosshair grille for decades. The latest iteration doesn’t come with such design but looks really amazing.
While the front end will look pretty much the same, things would be notably different on the other end of the vehicle. First of all, we are talking about a classic SUV design, with a pretty boxy shape and a very long, wagon-like body. As we already mentioned, the new model should measure around 120 inches in wheelbase. Moreover, a long-wheelbase version is expected as well.
This is where we expect a lot of great things from the 2021 Dodge Ramcharger. So far, full-size SUVs have been known for a pretty truckish approach when it comes to the dashboard design. However, the new Ram 1500 has completely changed the game, as it became a truck that offers interior quality that is on par with many premium models. There is an attractive dashboard, full of hi-quality materials and soft-touch materials. Moreover, a long list of tech features makes things look even more opulent. This particularly refers to the optional 12-inch touchscreen, which looks impressive.
The 2021 Dodge Ramcharger would probably feature the same or almost the same dashboard design. On the other side, the rest of the cabin would be notably different. Count on standard three rows of seats, where the third row should be able to provide a generous amount of legroom as well. The same thing goes for the cargo volume, which should be on par with key players on the market.
2021 Dodge Ramcharger Engines
This is the aspect where we definitely don’t expect to see any surprise. Base models should come with a V6 engine. Of course, we are talking about a well-known Pentastar unit wit 3.6 liters in displacement and a max output of 305 horsepower. Of course, we count on the eTorque systems to be a standard feature as well.
Higher trims should come with a 5.7-liter V8, which delivers 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque and could also come with an optional eTorque system. A diesel version with a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel also seems possible.
Finally, we could see some hi-performance versions in the offer as well, maybe even with the Hellcat engine. All engines should come in pair with 8-speed automatic transmission.
2021 Dodge Ramcharger Release Date and Price
When it comes to the 2021 Dodge Ramcharger release date, we could see it pretty soon, maybe already in the next year. The price should go in a typical range for the class, which means a starting price of around 50.000 dollars. As we already mentioned, key competitors will be models like the Ford Expedition, Chevy Tahoe, Toyota Sequoia etc.
