2017 RAM Power Wagon Release Date

Ram’s most capable off-roader has recently been presented to the world as a 2017 model. The eagerly-anticipated Power Wagon truck comes with a number of exterior and interior updates but remains unchanged when it comes to the mechanical bits. Based on the 2500 heavy-duty pickup truck, the Power Wagon features a number of upgrades that make it suitable for overcoming even the most difficult obstacles. Thanks to its powerful Hemi V8 and the towing capacity of 10,000 pounds, the 2017 Ram Power Wagon will be one of the most capable workhorses in the segment.

2017 Power Wagon Updates

While the 2016 version of this truck featured a bevy of chrome details and a divisive optional graphics package, Ram’s designers decided to take a different approach with its successor. The Ram Power Wagon 2017 now comes with a new blacked out front end as well as a number of Rebel-inspired styling cues. Those include black bumpers, wheel arches, new headlights and 17-inch forged-aluminum wheels with matte-black centers that give the upcoming Power Wagon a much more menacing appearance. Compared to the previous model, it features a two-tone exterior styling, with six different body paints to choose from. As for the interior, it didn’t receive quite as radical changes. Namely, the fabric seats now feature Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tire-tread pattern, while those who opt for heated seats get Light Slate Gray contrast stitching and Ram logos on the headrests. The premium trim level adds leather upholstery and a different set of embroidered logos.

2017 Ram Power Wagon Engine Specs

The 2017 Ram Power Wagon will stay unchanged as far as the mechanics department is concerned. It will once again be offered with the tried and tested 6.4-liter Hemi V8 that churns out 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. Its power is transmitted through a 6-speed automatic gearbox and a manually-shifted transfer case. Just like its predecessor, the updated Power Wagon still features a 12,000-pound Warn winch and it’s still capable of taking on up to 30 inches of water.

Thanks to these changes, the 2017 Ram Power Wagon adopts a sleeker exterior design that rivals even the likes of the half-ton Ford Raptor. Official release date has yet to be revealed but we expect this mighty truck to go on sale by mid-2016.
