Power Wagon. The name alone is marketing brilliance. It has a big box for hauling stuff, but it also has the power to get that stuff there. Over the years (it will be 70 years in 2015) the PW has changed much, but the latest version is still a powerful wagon—and so much more. We recently spent a weekend exploring the Arizona desert with the latest, greatest Power Wagon from Ram, and we came home impressed with the adventures that such a fullsize truck could offer.
The new Ram Power Wagon is a 3⁄4-ton Ram 2500 truck, but with quite a few upgrades to make it more capable off-road for both recreation and work. They are all crew cab shortbed body styles and only available with the gas engine. However, the gas engine is now a bigger 6.4L V-8 and packs the power and grunt needed for grinding up and over off-road obstacles. In addition to the larger powerplant, the new Power Wagon has adopted the coil link suspension front and rear, making it flexible and compliant to off-road use. The Power Wagon is the perfect new truck for someone who needs more 4x4 than a Jeep Wrangler, with more overall capability than a Raptor.
