The all-new 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon has been spied a few weeks ago. It is the prototype of the 75th Anniversary Edition, but the base variant will look like this special edition. We had an opportunity to see the same robust truck. However, the new Power Wagon will get a couple of visual upgrades. This is an off-road variant that comes with more equipment and better interior design.
As before, Ram Power Wagon is available in the crew cab configuration and the same 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine is available once again. If you are looking for a heavy-duty off-road truck, Ram 2500 Power Wagon is one of the best choices in the markets. This model will hit the dealerships later this year and this is what we know about the new Power Wagon so far.
2022 Power Wagon Spied
The 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon was caught on cameras, wearing heavy camouflage. This popular truck was wearing its 75th Anniversary Edition, but the base variant will introduce the same updates. Ram will deliver a couple of changes on the front fascia. The LED headlights won’t change but the grille is slightly wider and it definitely looks more attractive.
The “jail bar” front grille is recognizable as it comes with the blacked-out RAM lettering. The side profile shows a handsome design with more pronounced lines. The styling is aggressive and Power Wagon will offer standard 17-inch black wheels as standard. This truck will offer a lot of off-road equipment, including the rock rails, skid plates, and side steps.
The interior of the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will also gain numerous updates. After Ford introduced the latest upgrades to its Super Duty lineup, Ram in answering in a similar fashion. For a start, Power Wagon will arrive with a new infotainment system. It is the next-gen Uconnect5 system and Ram said it will be the best infotainment system in the segment.
On top of that, the manufacturer plans to offer new safety aids as well. The off-road truck is based on the Ram 2500HD model, so cabin design won’t depart from its original roots. A crew cab setup is available, which is great. The Power Wagon will arrive with a room for five occupants. The leather upholstery will be optional, along with the larger 12-inch touchscreen.
Under The Hood
The upcoming 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will continue to offer its 6.4-liter Hemi V8 gasoline powertrain. This engine develops up to 410 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. The four-wheel-drive setup is standard and the engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The optional 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine is a far better choice.
The turbodiesel engine is capable of producing 400 horsepower and slightly above 900 lb-ft of torque. Ram could deliver a higher level of torque in the near future as Ford did with its diesel engine. Still, Ram is yet to reveal more details, including the engine specs.
2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Launch Date, Price
As for the price, the new 2022 Ram 2500 Power wagon will cost $55,000. This price is not official, but Ram will surely opt for a slightly higher starting price. The manufacturer will launch its new off-road heavy-duty truck in the last quarter of 2022.
