The Power Wagon has always been one of a kind in the world of HD pickup trucks and it looks like things won’t change in the next year either. Based on the latest generation of the popular Ram 2500, the current version has been around for a while. So, the next year shouldn’t bring any particular change. More precisely, minor tweaks are possible, but the overall layout will remain the same. Therefore, it’s not hard to make basic predictions about the next year’s version, despite that some 2021 Ram Power Wagon rumors suggest big novelties. That simply is not going to happen.
So, you may count on a familiar design, which includes loads of exclusive design solutions. Compared to other HD trucks on the market, this one comes with significant off-road upgrades. There are some aesthetical exclusivities, but most of the upgrades are in terms of mechanics and that is what makes the Power Wagon special. We expect to see 2021 Ram 2500 Power Wagon sometime late in the year.
2021 Ram Power Wagon Design
When it comes to base design solutions, this is essentially a Ram 2500. However, there are also loads of upgrades, which make it one of the most capable trucks around. Some of the first things you will notice are goodies like higher ground clearance, 33-inch-tall Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, black 17-inch wheels and recognizable graphics.
Still, those mechanical upgrades are far more important. There you may count on completely new suspension setup, electronically locking differential and 4.10:1 gears. Furthermore, there is a two-speed transfer case, a larger 11.5-inch ring gear and thicker axles, Warn winch mounted behind the front bumper etc. As a result, the Power Wagon is able to deal with pretty much any terrain. The company even claims it could go through 30-inch water.
While the exterior design comes in a rugged, old-school off-road manner, the cabin is a completely different story. Like any other Ram truck, this model features impressive interior quality. Attractive dashboard aesthetics are accompanied with excellent materials. Furthermore, you may count on loads of standard equipment. You can even opt for things like 12.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, heated front and rear seats, a surround-view camera system, and a heated steering wheel.
Another thing we really like about this truck is that the sound insulation is very good. There is not too much road noise, even though this truck comes standard with massive all-terrain tires. The cabin spacious and offers plenty of room, so adults can easily accommodate in both rows.
When it comes to possible 2021 Ram Power Wagon interior changes, we don’t expect anything more important to happen. Of course, there is always room for additions to the list of standard equipment, but most of the things will certainly remain the same.
2021 Ram Power Wagon Engines
Without any doubt, the 2021 Ram Power Wagon Diesel is the most anticipated thing for the next year. Simply, every truck enthusiast would love to see this capable truck equipped with the amazing 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel and some rumors suggest that the company would use a 1.000-lb-ft version in this case. Unfortunately, the company is still quiet on this matter and knowing FCA’s marketing policy, it looks like Cummins won’t happen that soon.
Therefore, you may count on just one engine option in the offer. That would be a well-known and proven 6.4-liter V8 HEMI engine. For this occasion, it features a max output of 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough to move this heavy off-roader from zero to sixty in about 8.4 seconds. It may be significantly slower compared to Raptor but don’t forget that we are talking about a 3/4-ton pickup truck. Therefore, you may count not only on amazing off-road performances but also on quite decent towing capacity, which goes around 12.000 pounds and makes this truck pretty versatile.
Some sources were also suggesting the possibility to see a Hellcat engine under the hood but we are pretty sure that such a thing won’t happen. We are pretty sure that the company will keep this engine exclusively in the upcoming Rebel TRX, which is about to be by far the fastest truck around.
2021 Ram Power Wagon Release Date and Price
Given the fact that bigger changes probably won’t come for the next year, the 2021 Ram Power Wagon release date will be scheduled for the end of 2020. This also means we won’t see bigger changes in terms of the price. Currently, this truck starts around 55.000 dollars, but it can go much higher due to loads of options.
When it comes to the competition, we are all waiting to see how the new F-250 Tremor will look like. Meanwhile, the Raptor remains the only big rival, even though we are talking about a half-ton pickup truck.
