Ram Unveils 2017 Ramcharger Concept at Easter Jeep Safari 2015 in Moab

At least they built one, hopefully they'll actually put it into production and it will only be the first of many.

They may need to make it a 4 door to sell in todays market though, maybe they could put some small suicide back doors on it like they do on some of the extended cab pickups.

I like it, assuming it's not an April fools prank.

They had a Ramcharger based on the second generation chassis (the first of the newer style pickups in the 90's) but it wasn't available here in the US. I saw one in Cabo and apparently it was for the Mexican market.

A four door would basically turn it into Ram's version of the Tahoe/Expedition which pretty much replaced the old Blazer and Bronco.

I like the 2 door full sized SUV's but the 4 doors sure are more practical. Perhaps the 2 doors will come back. I have seen pictures of 2 styles of a "new" Bronco but apparently both have been a hoax.

I guess for now, if I really want a 2 door toy there is always the option to rebuild and update one of the older ones.

I'm struggling to get used to the Ram truck front combined with an SUV-looking rear. Just seems like an odd hybrid to me.

I agree ^^ it seems like a weird mixture front look and back look. But I think it's pretty cool, yet 4 doors seem it would work much better.

That is so obviously a photochopped picture and not an actual vehicle. It is a April's Fool's prank and nothing more. They are just following up on last year's Bronco prank.

From the article:

The Ramcharger nameplate was produced from 1974 through 1993 (up to 2001 in Mexico) but if you’ve made it this far into the story, you probably missed that part farther up where we said we made this press release up. That should have been your hint that we’ve played with your emotions once again. Yup, this is our April Fools story for 2015!

Too bad, I would love to see it with another set of doors. I just recently sold my Ford Excursion , which I loved other than the lack of a Cummins and replaced it with an '05 Ram 2500 quad cab with a Cummins. It was a deal I couldn't pass up but it's only been a few days and I miss the SUV thing. Will probably drive this for a couple of years and move into a Yukon XL or something.

I use to work at the plant that made the 70's Ramcharger and Trailduster It was something to see them buying built from the frame up to a finish product they were making 55 an hour.

Had a '77 Ramcharger as a kid. It was actually a rare one since it had a 400ci motor in it. Most of them came with 225, 318 not sure if the 360 made it in their. It was a fun truck , but it basically rusted apart around me. Oh , and if it was raining out you probably would be stranded. Something about the rain and those stupid ballast resistors didn't work together.
