The 2017 Ram Power Wagon Is Capable Of A Lot

 

The 2017 Ram Power Wagon is large, weighs 7,000 pounds and is capable of handling both business and pleasure. The 4X4 Power Wagon helped the Allied Forces win World War II and has been helping Americans enjoy off-road adventures since 1946. This latest version of it puts more power and technological enhancements at the driver’s disposal.

The Power Wagon with its 149.3 inch wheelbase, 14.3 inch ground clearance, 76 inch and an overall length of 237.3 inches, is clearly a big pickup. It’s 2-inch lift suspension system makes it off-road-capable. The system features a high articulation three-link front combined with a five-link rear live axle suspension, plus Bilstein monotube shocks to provide better axle control. The front stabilizer bar can also be electronically disconnected to allow for even more axle articulation. If you want to see for yourself how it can work for you, check one out at Chapman Las Vegas Dodge. If you take a Ram for spin, you are sure to find the one that fits your needs.

The 2017 Ram Power Wagon has a towing capability of 10,030 pounds and can haul a 1,510 pound payload. Its factory tires are 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac. They help this powerful pickup easily conquer steep hills, rocks, sand dunes, muck and mire. That’s because the 410 horsepower, 6.4-liter, Hemi V-8 under the hood generates 429 lb-ft of torque and more than enough power to handle any type of terrain. Add its six-speed automatic transmission with its part-time transfer case connected, engage 4WD High and there’s enough traction to grip almost any surface.

The Power Wagon climbs steep hills effortlessly and its hill-descent control system makes coming down even easier. The system has buttons on the shift column that allow the driver to control the speed of the truck without touching the brake pedal or throttle. The driver simply selects the descent speed and aims the steering wheel, the system applies the necessary brake pressure to the wheels to safely bring the truck down over even the most rugged terrain.

Rock crawling is easier with the 2017 Ram Power Wagon because both front and rear differential can be locked. Then in 4WD Low, the anti-roll bar disconnected and the right approach angle with the truck’s axle articulation capabilities, it can handle any obstacles on even the most extreme off-road adventures. Its Bilstein shocks will minimize cabin movement, while the Articulink suspension provides the axle with extra articulation to improve its crawling performance.

If the truck’s strong posture isn’t menacing enough, you can add Power Wagon graphics on the hood and flanks and opt for a two-tone paint job. Plus, behind the front bumper the Ram Power Wagon has a 12,000-pound electric winch for emergencies. The controller behind the front bumper makes operating the winch a breeze.

Inside the truck the truck is spacious. It comes with cloth or leather seats and has an easy-to-clean hard plastic floor cover. There’s even a front middle seat with a lap belt. The 2017 Ram Power Wagon starts at $53,000. Add the Leather and Luxury package, Cargo View Camera and RamBox Cargo Management system and it’s closer to $60,000. But they say driving the 2017 Ram Power Wagon will put hair on your chest.
