According to the most recent reports, Dodge is preparing for another huge comeback. The 2023 Dodge Ramcharger is on the way, which is very exciting to hear. Interestingly, back in the day, the Ramcharger model had one big rival, Ford Bronco. Bronco is basically here, so Dodge is preparing an answer. The Ramcharger was a popular SUV between the 1970 and 1990s.
Now that the comeback is on the cards, we are already reading rumors regarding this model. You can find a lot of speculations about this model, including its off-road and performance-oriented variants. The truth is that the Dodge Ramcharger is not official yet, although there is a good chance of happening. Without further ado, this is what we know about this iconic SUV at the moment.
The upcoming 2023 Dodge Ramcharger will gain a completely new look, supported by a new architecture. While you can find a lot of speculations regarding the Ramcharger crossover, this model will arrive as the traditional BoF SUV. The most logical outcome is borrowing a platform from the legendary Ram 1500 pickup truck. Two models should also share a couple of other things, including design language and mechanics.
Furthermore, the new Ramcharger will arrive as either a mid-size or a full-size SUV. A compact model is not an option, according to car experts. The front fascia will look recognizable, with the same grille and headlights as those on the Ram 1500. On the other hand, Dodge Ramcharger will offer a more stylish appearance with a couple of unique exterior elements.
Dodge Ramcharger Interior
Even the interior of the 2023 Dodge Ramcharger will be based on the Ram 1500 full-size truck. Of course, the SUV will offer some unique features, including a new dashboard. Generally, the idea is the same, so we do not expect something surprising. The Ramcharger SUV will have an upright cabin design with a high level of comfort.
On top of that, we expect lots of high-tech amenities, especially in the upper trim levels. As the Ramcharger will arrive as a mid-size or even full-size SUV, we expect ample passenger and cargo room. Thanks to a boxier shape, headroom will be especially generous. However, will the Ramcharger model arrives with a two-row or three-row seating layout is the biggest mystery at the moment.
What About Engine Specs?
This is a tough one, as there are so many powertrain options as possible candidates. The first engine on this list is a proven 3.6-liter V6 with almost 300 horsepower. A larger 5.7-liter Hemi V8 is another possibility, most likely as an option. This powertrain is capable of producing 395 hp and 410 lb-ft of torque. No matter which engine is available, Dodge will offer a reliable 8-speed ZF automatic transmission.
You can find a lot of rumors regarding the performance-oriented Ramcharger with a 6.2-liter V8 Hellcat engine. Of course, this is less likely to happen anytime soon. The least likely outcome is some sort of mild-hybrid or plug-in hybrid powertrain.
2023 Dodge Ramcharger Price, Release Date
While the Ford Bronco will cost around $30,000, the new 2023 Dodge Ramcharger will cost a little bit more than that, per source. Of course, this model is not official yet, so the price will remain a mystery. As for the launch date, the Ramcharger SUV should go on sale in the first half of 2023.
