The North American Auto Show held in Detroit, Michigan, is always an exciting time for new truck reveals. Ram kept the tradition alive by releasing the all-new 2019 Power Wagon. While the new model isn’t much different on the design side, there are some new features it shares with the 2019 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty.
The new Power Wagon is built with new high-strength steel. It features an aluminum hood and new tailgate surround reinforcements. Using these materials, Ram was able to reduce the weight significantly on its Heavy Duty lineup. The truck also features a power-release tailgate and push-button fold-in mirrors.
A new 360-degree camera gives drivers a bird’s eye view of the surroundings. New forward-view gridlines make it easy to navigate obstacles. Ram also says it has created the quietest truck ever using new technology to reduce noise and vibration. New engine mounts, anti-vibration devices, and noise-cancelling exhaust system attachments are just some of the ways Ram achieves this. The Power Wagon comes with the standard 8.4-inch screen, but an optional 12-inch screen is now available in the interior as well.
The locking front and rear differentials and disconnecting sway bar remain unchanged from the previous Power Wagon. Ram continues to offer a 12,000-pound Warn Zeon winch. Reid Bigland, head of Ram brand, jokingly said during the press conference that the winch could be used to pull your friends’ less-capable trucks out of trouble. The winch features a new synthetic line that does not kink or fray. The winch setup is also 28 pounds lighter than the previous model. The Power Wagon also comes with a 2-inch lift featuring a Bilstein off-road shock package. It also continues to come standard with 33-inch Goodyear DuraTrac tires.
