The Dodge Rampage was a neo-pickup produced from 1982-1984, based on the Dodge Omni 024 coupe (which became the Charger in 1983), much in the same vein as the Chevrolet El Camino and Ford Ranchero, but competed more directly with the Subaru BRAT and Volkswagen's neo-pickup that was based on the Rabbit. Plymouth also had an identical twin to the Rampage called the Scamp, resurrecting a nameplate last used by Plymouth on the Valiant coupe in 1976. All options including the sporty 2.2 package on the 024/Charger were also available on the Rampage and Scamp, with the exception of the Shelby package, which was not offered. Borrowing from its larger pickup brethren, a Prospector package was offered on the Rampage only that included a slightly upgraded interior and a special decal behind the door, a pick and a shovel crossed.
Unfortunately the Rampage and Scamp were poor sellers for Chrysler, and as a result, the Scamp was dropped after only a 2 year run in 1983. The Rampage held on for one more year and would receive a facelift for 1984 just like its Charger stablemate, but it would ultimately suffer the same fate as the Scamp after this year. There would be no replacement for either model.
