The upcoming Ram 2500 truck will have a lot of upgrades. New 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is a more aggressive version of the truck and it also provides a unique list of standard and optional features. This model comes with a crew cab, and it has a powerful V8 gasoline engine and a lot of off-road features.
The Power Wagon will wear the same cosmetic as the base Ram 2500 trim level. Inside the cabin, the same kind of treatment will be used. The sales will begin later in 2022 and here’s what to expect from the new model.
Ram 2500 Power Wagon Facelift
The 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will introduce the same exterior treatment as the rest of the Ram 2500 lineup. Unlike other trim levels, Power Wagon sports a more aggressive design with additional ground clearance. Furthermore, it comes with chunkier tires and larger wheels. Ram will come up with a new combination of the bigger front grille and sharper LED lights.
Chrome will also be used more on the front part. Still, the Power Wagon has a very unique look. An aggressive body with a lot of off-road features is a good combination. The customers will get various off-road equipment, standard 17-inch wheels, skid plates, side steps, rock rails, and much more.
This isn’t the first time that the new 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will borrow a lot of things from the light-duty Ram 1500 truck. All of the Ram 2500 trucks will get the same updates, even inside the cabin. The carmaker will offer more upright materials and more technology features. Expect a new entertainment system that has a bigger 12-inch screen.
Furthermore, Ram will add wireless features, USB-C ports, and additional safety equipment. There will be room for five passengers, as the Power Wagon can only be had with the Crew Cab setup. Lastly, this truck will provide more standard features than the outgoing model.
Reliable Gasoline V8 Engine
Under the bonnet, the next 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will once again offer a 6.4-liter V8 engine. This gasoline unit is capable of producing 410 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. On top of that, Ram provides a standard 4WD system and an eight-speed automatic transmission. On the other hand, Power Wagon will not provide diesel engines. Many fans hoped to see the famous 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel engine, but that won’t happen.
It’s a shame, as this powertrain provides 400 hp and over 900 lb-ft of torque. It is a perfect engine, especially for off-road beasts such as Ram 2500 Power Wagon. A hybrid powertrain is a possibility, and it should happen in the next two or three years. For 2023MY, the only gasoline engine will be available.
2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Price and Release Date
The new 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will cost $55,000, although the official price is not available yet. Reportedly, this off-road truck will go on sale in the second half of 2022. Some of the upgrades will be significant, but Ram is yet to provide an official announcement.
