21. Dodge Ramcharger
The success of the Blazer and the Bronco inspired Dodge to offer its own off-road model. They based it on a shortened truck chassis with a closed body style. They named their new model the Ramcharger, introducing it in 1974, along with the identical Plymouth Trailduster. The base engine was a Chrysler venerable 225 slant six unit. However, buyers could choose between four more engines including the mighty 440 V8.
The power level of this famous big block was not that high for 1974. However, loads of torque are more important for off-road driving and pulling the Ramcharger out of the mud. They presented the second generation in 1981 and discontinued it in 1994. Basically, it was just an update of the original design.
