The Ram HD is expected to receive a mid-cycle refresh in the next year and we presume these updates would affect the Power Wagon as well. This version of the company’s 3/4-ton pickup has always been famous for its excellent off-road performance and we presume that the upcoming update would bring mostly visual enhancements. On the other hand, the overall layout wouldn’t change much and the next year’s version would carry on with familiar mechanical upgrades that make it the most capable HD RAM on offer. We presume that the 2024 Ram 2500 Power Wagon could arrive sometime in the last quarter of the year.
All in all, these updates could make the truck look more appealing. On the other hand, the overall layout will remain the same, so we expect to see a model that offers excellent off-road performance, in a combination with lots of exclusive styling details. Some sources also speculate about the possibility to see some powertrain upgrades, but that doesn’t mean that some of the compromises that characterize the current model will be gone.
2024 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Design
So, the anticipated mid-cycle refresh should bring a couple of styling updates to all models in the lineup, which would affect the Power Wagon as well. This may refer to different things, such as a new headlight, a new grille design etc. Of course, this model would carry on with a full load of exclusive styling features, which refer to grille design, bumpers, decals, wheels and many more.
All in all, these updates will make the new model look more attractive but we expect that the overall layout won’t change and that the next year’s 2024 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will continue with the same exclusive mechanical feature that makes it an excellent off-roader. Of course, there is an upgraded suspension with more travel and higher ground clearance, as well as a disconnecting stabilizer bar. The four-wheel-drive system is standard and it comes with low-range gearing. Furthermore, there are locking differentials on both axles, along with many other upgrades.
When it comes to interior design, the upcoming update might bring some novelties to the inside as well. For example, we might see new color schemes, along with minor revisions to the dashboard. Furthermore, some sources suggest that a digital instrument cluster could become part of the standard equipment. Just like the current model, we expect that the new one will come only in a crew cab style, with a short cargo bed.
New tech and convenience features are possible too. The current model comes standard with cloth upholstery and offers leather as an upgrade, ad we presume that this won’t change. Also, the current model comes standard with an 8.4-inch infotainment screen, while the next year’s version could come standard with the currently-optional 12.0-inch unit. To sum up, the list of standard equipment should become longer.
2024 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Engines
Although the officials are still quiet, some sources speculate about the possible big powertrain novelties for the next year. According to them, the next year’s model could finally be offered with a diesel engine. Of course, we are talking about the good-old 6.7-liter inline-six turbodiesel from Cummins, which puts out around 370 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. That engine comes coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
On the other hand, standard models would continue with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8, which puts out around 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. Also, this engine comes coupled with a little bit smoother and more refined 8-speed automatic transmission.
2024 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2024 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will arrive sometime in the second half of the year, with a starting price of around 65.000 dollars.
