Dodge set a lofty goal for the 2017 Power Wagon – to be the most capable off-road truck on the market. In a crowded marketplace, that’s a pretty big goal, especially considering that the ¾ ton truck is usually used to haul a lot of cargo or pull a huge trailer. While it’s a great hauler, it’s also a great off-roading vehicle.

Ram has plenty of other off-road vehicles in its lineup, though the Power Wagon is the cream of the crop, despite its size. Ram didn’t make a lot of changes, and it’s pretty much the same as it was in the past years. One change, and it’s really not that big, is the restyled front end, which looks closer to the Ram 1500 Rebel. It also has an upgraded interior and option exterior graphics, but if you are an of-road enthusiast, you will notice the superior ground clearance, locking differentials and a host of other potential upgrades.

With 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires and upgraded Bilstein monotube shocks, the Ram Power Wagon has an impressive 14.3 inches of ground clearance. It also has an approach angle of 33.6 degrees, a departure angle of 26.2 degrees and a breakover angle of 23.5 degrees. This gives off-roaders more space than almost every other SUV or truck on the planet.

The front and rear locking differentials help off-roaders even more. With 4.10 gearing on the Power Wagon, drivers have, essentially, the same setup as the Wrangler Rubicon. It doesn’t hurt that the Ram Power Wagon has a 6.4 Liter HEMI V8, which produces 410 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque. With all this power, it’s easy to get out of any trouble while on the trails. To solve problems and help other off-roaders out, the Power Wagon has a standard, 12,000 pound Warn winch.

If you need your Power Wagon for towing, you are in luck. It can tow up to 10,030 pounds, and it has a payload capacity of up to 1,510 pounds. This means that you can use the truck as a workhorse on weekdays and for fun on the weekend. And with the high-powered HEMI, no matter the size of the hill you are conquering or the load you are carrying, you won’t struggle. While it’s one thing to read about it, it’s another to experience the power for yourself. If you have the time, head to Chapman Las Vegas Dodge and test drive one for yourself.

It’s true that most off-roaders are a different bunch, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t like some luxury, and the 2017 Ram Power Wagon certainly delivered. With upgrades like on-board navigation, a rearview camera, keyless entry, Uconnect and heated/ventilated seats, you can enjoy the Ram Power Wagon and feel complete luxury. Without a doubt, the 2017 offers a great off-roading experience, and it’s comfortable enough to be a daily driver. So, if you are in the market for a luxurious, comfortable and capable off-roading truck, check out the 2017 Ram Power Wagon.

 

Dodge Ram fans have yet another reason to be excited. The company is using the 2017 Chicago Auto Show as the launching pad for its new heavy duty night models. These are supersized special edition Ram 2500 and 3500 models that come factory-equipped with a customized black-out look that features a Black grille surround, as well as badges and wheels that give unique style and personality to these heavy duty pickups. The new vehicles also boast refined interiors, durable engines, great looks and a host of other exclusive features that help to further enhance their capabilities.

The new Night editions are a further expansion of Ram’s factory-custom truck family that begins with the half-ton Ram 1500 the company announced in September 2016 all the way to its three-quarter and one-ton models. The new look draws on the Sport appearance package’s monochromatic color-scheme and creates an eye-catching adaption of Ram’s performance-enthusiast-oriented package. For truck enthusiasts seeking vehicles that stand out, the Ram brand continues to do just that.

Ram has long delivered some of the best trucks for enthusiasts. They include the Ram Sport, the popular Rebel as well as the Ram Power Wagon, the ultimate off-road truck. The company began producing the Ram HD Night models in early February 2017. They come with black lighting bezels, powertrain-specific badging, steel body-color-painted front and rear bumpers, black-bezel headlamps, black-painted 20 x 8-inch aluminum wheels and LT285/60R20E on/off road tires with outlined-white letter. There are also optional black rectangular running boards. The pricing for the Ram Heavy Duty Night models starts at $45,520. To check out any Ram trucks, head to Chapman Dodge Las Vegas, and you are sure to find the model that fits your needs and budget.

With regards to the interior, the Night package comes with heated high-back, 10-way power adjusted cloth vinyl bucket seats, power-adjustable pedals as well as automatic dual-zone temperature control. Buyers have the choice of either five-passenger buckets featuring a center console or a six-passenger bench. The exterior of the new Heavy Duty Night package on the Ram adds black billet inserts on the black grille surround, a grille badge with a black Ram’s head, a bold “RAM” tailgate featuring blacked-out lettering on the Ram Power Wagon, flat black powertrain door and 4×4 tailgate badge and a flat black heavy duty door badge on the Ram 2500 or 3500.

The Night package comes only on the single rear-wheel models of the Ram 2500 and 3500 in Crew Cab configurations, 4×4 or 4×2 and powertrain combination with a 6.7-liter Cummins I-6, 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 or 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engines. The HD Night models of the Ram 2500 and 3500 also come in Granite Crystal Metallic, Bright Silver Metallic, Brilliant Black Crystal, Bright White and Delmonico Red Pearl.

Designed to work hard, the Ram Heavy Duty pickups deliver 31,210 pounds of towing capability. Its Cummins High-Output 6.7-liter Turbo Diesel offers 385 horsepower as well as 900 lb.-ft. of torque. With 16,320 pounds of towing capacity, the Ram 2500 claims the gas-powered ¾-ton towing title. Ram Heavy Duty pickups offer the most interior space, highest snow plow ratings and best off-road capability in their segments.
