FCA Design announces an impromptu Ram truck sketch battle

by Patrick Rall on

FCA announced earlier today that company design heads Ralph Gilles and Mark Trostle are challenging the world to an interesting design contest. As an offshoot of the Drive for Design contest, which is focusing on Ram pickups this year, Gilles and Trostle are asking for anyone with design capabilities to see the “wickedest and most outrageous designs for a Ram truck”.

To promote this impromptu sketch battle, FCA’s design team shared this image of a modern Dodge Rampage. It has the new Ram headlights and grille, the front end and chassis of a Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye and a short pickup bed. It is pretty wild, looking like something that our readers from Australia would love.

Here are the details of the sketch battle, from FCA:
Let’s get creative! FCA design heads Ralph Gilles and Mark Trostle are challenging you to a sketch battle, taking over this week’s Drive for Design contest topic. They want to see your wickedest and most outrageous designs for a Ram truck. While Drive for Design is for high school students, this battle is for anyone, in any country! Do it by yourself or make it a family-fun activity.

Ralph and Mark will Instagram their favorites this Friday, April 10. Need some inspiration? We’ll go first. Meet RAMpage! Now, you go! Deadline to submit your sketch is Thursday, April 9 at 5 p.m. Eastern.

Below is the “flyer” explaining all of the rules and showing off the cool RAMpage created for this sketch battle.

You can read more about the sketch battle on the FCA North America Facebook page.
