2017 Ram Power Wagon is all suited up and good to go, pricing details released

Article by Christian A., on November 25, 2016

Back in February of this year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) introduced a new and improved 2017 Ram Power Wagon. The current version of the Power Wagon is snout-faced and looks nothing like its labelmates but the upcoming version is a different story and is, take note, a tad more expensive.

Based off the same 2500 model as that of the outgoing car, the 2017 Ram Power Wagon looks more appealing than ever before. The upcoming version will receive various interior and exterior trim changes that will surely attract off-roading enthusiasts.

For a $51,695 MSRP (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) – excluding the $1,320 destination fee – the 2017 Ram Power Wagon will receive a redesigned grille, front and rear bumper, wing mirrors and tailgate as well as new seat upholstery with a tire-tread pattern.

Of course, this off-road beast will come with standard equipment in the likes of a five-link suspension with Bilstein mono-tube shocks and a “Smart Bar” electronically disconnecting sway bar, some electric locking front and rear differentials, gigantic 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac custom wheels, a complete underbody cladding to protect the stuff down under, tow hooks and a 12,000-pound Warn winch and last but not the least, some pretty unique bodywork graphics. The new decal designs may come in silver or black and customers may opt to add a bit of a flair by switching up its paintjob, with a choice of six different colors.

The most significant feature for 2017 model year is probably the matte black trim adorning the front fascia. It replaces the chrome trim of the outgoing model which pretty much looks more appropriate for an off-road vehicle. Moreover, the 2017 Power Wagon will feature the iconic large Ram logo on its grille similar to what’s on the F-150 Raptor.

The same 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine will provide power to this pickup, generating as much as 410 horsepower and 429 lb.-ft. of torque. It also comes with a six-speed automatic transmission to make it easier for off-road adventures.

An optional $4,495 Leather & Luxury pack may be purchased for customers who want a more luxurious experience on top of the Power Wagon’s rugged character. What does this package consist of? Well, it mainly comes with a powered 10-way adjustable driver’s seat to add comfort to the off-road driving experience, a dual-zone auto climate control, a heated and ventilated front bench especially when you’re out and about in the wilderness, front and rear park assist with rear backup camera and an infotainment system packed with a Sirius XM satellite radio and nine Alpine speakers with subwoofer to add to the badass-ery of it all.

When it was first released, the snout-faced Power Wagon was dubbed a Ram Rebel for its eccentric look. Now, what looked like an adopted family member can blend in with its off-road relatives and maybe even attract even more attention for the beauty that it is. If you’re worried that all these changes might affect the performance of the self-proclaimed “most capable off-road truck in America”, then you’re wrong. FCA assures us that the 2017 Ram Power Wagon will deliver the same kind of performance – the same “paths-less-traveled” package that it always had.
