Ram has recently released a refreshed Power Wagon with a tougher face and an overhauled interior. In an attempt to make this rugged truck more akin to the F-150 Raptor, the automaker has upgraded it substantially. Interestingly, recently taken spy shots reveal the 2018 Ram 2500 is about to adopt the Power Wagon’s fresh exterior styling. As for the 2018 Ram Power Wagon, expect it to bring only minor tweaks compared to the ongoing model. It will once again come in the form of a three-quarter ton, four-door Crew Cab with four-wheel drive. According to insider sources, the upcoming Power Wagon could hit the North American dealerships sometime in mid-2017.
2018 Ram Power Wagon Design and Features
In terms of styling, expect the 2018 Ram Power Wagon to take cues from the Ram 1500 Rebel. The recently redesigned truck now sports a blacked-out grille instead of the Dodge-era cross-hair design. Its front end also gets black-bezel projector headlights with LED accents. At the back, expect to see prominent RAM lettering stretching across the tailgate.
Inside the cabin, the refreshed Power Wagon offers even more notable changes. The two new interior schemes include ”technical grain” seats with DuraTrac tire pattern and a leather option. Both variants come with blacked-out trim and Light Slate Gray stitching, as well as details painted in Iron Gray Metallic. As of recently, the Power Wagon is offered in a new Tradesman trim that includes only the basic off-road hardware. The hardware itself incorporates a specially designed suspension system with Bilstein monotube shocks and a two-inch lift kit. The new Ram Power Wagon 2018 will also offer high-movement joints that allow for additional wheel movement. With its 14.3 inches of ground clearance, this capable pickup truck can ford up to 30 inches of water.
The 2018 Ram Power Wagon will use the tried and tested HEMI V8 as the only engine option. The 6.4-liter unit will crank out 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. Its power will be sent to all four wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The Power Wagon’s robust four-wheel drive system will also include automated hill-descent control.
The upgraded Power Wagon should be a great choice for all those expecting a large truck with outstanding off-road abilities. The 2018 Power Wagon will be produced at the company’s Saltillo Truck Assembly Plant in Mexico.
