Looking for the ultimate in a heavy-duty, off-roading pickup? Meet your match with the RAM 2500 Power Wagon! This beefy truck comes in a crew-cab configuration with four doors and an absolutely cavernous interior cabin, and sports standard four-wheel drive for the ultimate off-roading experience. Not for the faint of heart, the Power Wagon demands to be seen and heard as you cruise The Battlefords. A standard RAM HD 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine delivers 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque, and gives off a satisfying thunderclap of sound when you hit the gas. Excited to learn more about this unique truck? Let’s break it down, spec by spec!
"Forget about the recent proliferation of fortified, factory-built, off-road pickup trucks. The lineage of Ram's biggest, baddest off-roader was established long ago. Power Wagons have always been the real deal—tough, trail-ready trucks that aren't just built to get dirty but look best splattered with wet earth."
The RAM 1500 is one of the beefiest full-size pickups on the road, but if you’re looking for a truck with a little, well, extra, moving into RAM 2500 territory is the way to go. You get more power, more towing, and generally more truck compared to the award-winning RAM 1500.
So what about the RAM 2500? The Power Wagon has significantly more off-road specific features to set it apart from the RAM 2500 - or any other truck in its class, for that matter. With 17-inch wheels and monstrous 33-inch tall Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, the Power Wagon boasts serious ground clearance and can safely take on at least 30-inches of water - and that’s just the tip of the tailpipe.
Electronically-locking differential in both front and rear live axles
Larger and thicker rear axles with an 11.5-inch ring gear
Added joint to the front suspension axle mount (called Articulink)
The only electronically disconnecting front anti-roll bar in this class
26.0 inches of front wheel articulation rivals some competition rigs
Incredible crawling abilities that can climb steep grades with little wheel spin
Bilstein dampers and front/rear coil springs give a pleasantly smooth ride
Noise-dampening technology for a quiet ride
Access the surround-view camera system on a vibrant 12-inch touchscreen display
Comfortably tow up to 10,580 pounds
"The experience of driving a Power Wagon is a curious one. Off-road, it’s a monster, able to scale steep rocks, blast through sand dunes, jump when it needs to, or crawl when it must. On-road, it’s a very different animal and surprisingly more civilized than you might expect. Highway driving is surprisingly serene, and the immensity of the Power Wagon combined with the exceptional cabin insulation and quieter tires gives you the illusion of travelling a lot more slowly than you actually are."
"Whether you keep the Power Wagon on pavement or take it off-road, you’re going to get noticed, because this truck’s damn-good-looking."
"What this Ram is exceptional at though, is exactly what it’s built for: off-roading. One of our ATVs stopped working on us while we were up at the camp, so our only option was to take the truck, and thank Odin’s bicep, we had the Power Wagon this year. Not only did it eat bumps and hills for breakfast, but it was also way nicer than riding an ATV through the bush for 45 minutes every morning, in sub-freezing temperatures."
