Ram’s go-anywhere HD gets a little Rebelious

The Ram Power Wagon is probably the brawniest truck on the market. It comes built on the Ram 2500 HD Crew Cab and boasts industry-exclusive off-road tech like solid axles, all-terrain tires, a manual transfer case, a disconnecting front sway bar, and a 12,000-pound Warn winch – all from the factory. Now for 2017, Ram is giving the Power Wagon a makeover courtesy of the Ram 1500 Rebel.

The Power Wagon’s front mug now wears a grille first seen on the Rebel, the Ram 1500’s most dedicated off-road trim package. New graphics on the Power Wagon’s sides, tailgate, and interior match the new snout.

While the looks might be different, the Power Wagon’s greasy bits are unchanged. This means the 6.4-liter Hemi V-8, heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission, 4WD system, frame, and suspension carry over from 2016. Of course, no one can complain about that – well, perhaps besides that the Power Wagon doesn’t offer the Cummins turbodiesel as an option. Thanks to the placement of the Warn winch, the Cummins’ intercooler won’t fit behind the bumper. That aside, the Power Wagon’s powertrain lives up to hype, generating impressive horsepower and torque numbers.

Also carrying over unchanged is the Power Wagon Tradesman trim level. The contractor- and feel-oriented truck uses all the same hardware, but foregoes the Rebel grille and showy graphics package. It’s all business with the Tradesman.

So what’s the 2017 Power Wagon all about? Keep reading for the full run-down.

Update 11/10/2016: Ram has released pricing for the 2017 Power Wagon, which goes on sale in the first quarter of 2017. The Tradesman trim starts at $46,995 and the SLT-based trim begins at $51,695. Check out the pricing section below for more details.
