Ram Trucks, an American-based brand of light to medium-weight commercial vehicles and an entirely owned auxiliary division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, continues to construct the best pickups in the industry. The 1500 EcoDiesel from Ram brings 29 mpg, the best fuel economy in the industry. The line of Heavy Duty trucks of Ram offers best-in-class torque of 900 lbs per foot and best-in-class towing capability of 31,210 pounds (approx 14186 kg).
However, Ram Trucks is best recognized for manufacturing the most off-road competent trucks among all other production pickup trucks. The 2017 Ram Power Wagon truck, which is designed to overcome the great outdoors, receives all-new interior and exterior design elements to complement its aggressive performance and off-road-influenced lifestyle. For the model year 2017, the Power Wagon will lead the off-road truck lineup that comprises Rebel and a 4×4 Off-road bundle that support the claim of the Ram brand to being the off-road truck innovator.
2017 Ram Power Wagon Redesign, Exterior
The external design of the next generation Ram Power Wagon is derived from the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 4×4 Crew Cab from Ram, and it features many off-road-specific improvements, including locking differentials, a matchless suspension with over two inches of lift and a 12,000-pound (approx 5455 kg) winch, offering the vehicle a significant benefit over all other production pickup trucks.
The new 2017 Dodge Ram Power Wagon truck is an all-access pass, getting rid of the restrictions, implanting confidence and allowing its owners to get to areas of pastime and lifestyle not achievable with any other pickup truck. It delivers incredible performance to those who trek into severe terrain, at the same time as offering the payload and towing capability needed in a heavy-duty truck.
Like the Ram 1500 Rebel, the new model Power Wagon features an all-fresh grille with a well-known Billet Silver “RAM” inscription badge. The bigger blacked-out grille is surrounded by the Black bezel bi-serviceable projector headlights, designed with the LED expertise. The vent-embossed hood as well includes a sheen Black graphic that inhabits the middle-hood to the windshield.
2017 Power Wagon gets a thick perpendicular stripe at the back of the cab with “Power Wagon” in a hefty rotated lettering. The discretionary graphics come in two slightly diverse color variations, according to the body color. It comes in five attractive body colors, such as:
The Black Power body-colored vehicle gets Bright Silver graphics, whereas other vehicles get Gloss Black graphics.
Front and back bumpers get a healthy dosage of powder covering. The daring front bumper efficiently hides a Warn 12,000-pound winch. The new model Power Wagon would sprint on 17-inch fake, multi-face aluminum wheels with Silver exterior and Matte Black interior, wearing 33-inch DuraTrac tires, with bare lug nuts with a small middle cap. The blacked-out design persists on the flanks, where wheel-arc moldings, mirrors, badges and lower body panels generate a unique outside look.
At the back, there is a 324-point bold unique font RAM-imprinted tailgate with blacked-out writing. The Gloss Black graphics meld with the Black powder-covered rear bumper and Black bezel taillight housings. A black label with the inscription, Power Wagon, crosses the base of the tailgate.
The new Ram Power Wagon 2017 includes a discretionary backup camera in its tailgate, offering a better visibility while maneuvering. It also comes with an optional special cargo-view camera that allows owners to watch bed loads devoid of turning back. A touch screen toggles the choice on the 8.4 Uconnect, alternating the sight from tailgate to the truck bed. Furthermore, a new discretionary tri-fold tonneau cover is imprinted with the Ram emblem.
The 2017 Power Wagon also comes in a Tradesman Crew Cab 4×4 version. Even though this option does not comprise the same exterior and interior design elements, it includes the similar unique off-road tools, including:
Electronic disconnecting sway bar.
The grille-border and inserts are carried over from the Tradesman model and are colored in Black like the headlight filler boards and wheel flares.
The new Power Wagon features a specially designed suspension scheme, counting Bilstein shocks, modified spring rates, control arms and over two inches of lift. It comes with a highly developed three-link front suspension to guarantee roll rigidity. At the back, it comes outfitted with five-link coil suspension system for best-in-class travel and handling.
The new truck comes equipped with front and back disc brakes with the rotors of diameter 14.17 inches in the front and 14.09 inches at the back. The ground clearance of the new Power Wagon will be 14.3 inches and it can run effectively in water with the maximum depth of 30 inches.
2017 Ram Power Wagon Interior
New Power Wagon comes with an option of two interiors and offers an exceptionally designed cabin that focuses on utility with flair. Its interior has been improved with exceptional technical grain seats, completed in Black and Diesel Gray with Sedoso fabric interleaves stamped with the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tire tread blueprint, complementing the actual footprint. The front heated seats have Light Slate Gray pronunciation sewing and Ram symbol sewing on the headrests and the Power Wagon nameplate in Black with Light Diesel Gray is attached to the upper seat bolsters.
Premium trim alternative steps up to leather seats with Ram and Power Wagon logos are tastefully embellished with the bolsters and Ram emblems are imprinted on the sides of the headrests. All models come with the same all-Black instrument board, door armrests, and 20 % seat console armrest wrap, which have Light Slate Gray sewing accent.
