Driven by the success of the revived Ford Bronco, Dodge is planning to enter the off-road segment as well, at least unofficial reports say so. According to them, the company is about to bring back the famous nameplate, which was once an epitome of an off-road SUV. But those times have been long gone and the company will have to work really hard to catch up with rivals. According to rumors, the new SUV is already in development and it could arrive already by the end of the next year, as the 2025 Dodge Ramcharger. The officials, on the other hand, are still quiet.
As you may presume, we don’t know too many details about this revival, but a couple of rendering photos did appear on the network. Moreover, some things are relatively easy to predict, especially when it comes to the mechanics and technical aspects of the vehicle in general.
2025 Dodge Ramcharger Design
As we’ve just mentioned, some things are relatively easy to predict, starting from the platform and overall layout. The first thing that comes to mind is the architecture, which would be shared with the Ram 1500 pickup. The 2025 Dodge Ramcharger would benefit in many ways, especially when it comes to performance and the adoption of the latest technology. But, when it comes to the overall design, some things are still a little bit unclear.
If you look at the rendering photos, you will clearly notice the resemblance with the original model. The overall shape and the legendary two-door layout are there but packed in a more modern suit, based on the model’s latest design language. Considering that a two-door model would hardly succeed in today’s market, at least with such measurements, we presume that the production version would rather go with something more conventional, more typical for today’s market – for a typical four-door layout.
Considering that Bronco and Wrangler are expected to be some of the key competitors, along with the Toyota 4Runner, we expect to see a full load of off-road features, especially when it comes to dedicated off-road versions, which would bring further suspension upgrades, locking differentials, two-speed transfer case and many more.
As for the interior design, it’s still early for details. Still, we see no reason why this model wouldn’t be based on the pickup sibling in this aspect as well. The RAM 1500 features an impressive interior design, with attractive aesthetics, the latest tech features and excellent build quality, so the 2025 Dodge Ramcharger interior would definitely look great in such a layout.
As for the seating configuration, things are pretty simple here. Four doors and two rows of seats is something everyone expects to see, along with a decently sized cargo area. In the case the new SUV comes with bigger dimensions, we might see the third row as well, as such a model would compete with the next-generation 4Runner, which is also expected to arrive soon.
2025 Dodge Ramcharger Engines
As for the powertrain, the era of large V8s is coming to an end, so we presume that the 2025 Dodge Ramcharger will be relying on something smaller. Base models could come based on a 3.6-liter V6, but the more efficient 2.0-liter turbo-four is also a possibility. Range-topping models would come with the latest Hurricane inline-six engine, which currently comes in two variants regarding max output, with either 420 or 510 horsepower.
All engines would come coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission. As mentioned, many versions are about to come with additional off-road hardware, which would include a two-speed transfer case, locking differentials and many more.
2025 Dodge Ramcharger Release Date and Price
According to rumors, the 2025 Dodge Ramcharger could arrive already by the end of the next year. As for the price, we presume that base versions could cost around 40.000 dollars, roughly.
