Who It’s For: The truck guy who wants to be able to tow and haul as well as climb and crawl. A spacious crew cab means there’s plenty of room for friends and family to enjoy the ride; people who look at a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited and think “not enough room” might land in a Power Wagon, given its combination of size and off-road capability.
GO WHERE OTHERS DON’T DARE. OR, BETTER SAID—WHERE THEY CAN’T. Go to extremes—because a 2019 Ram 2500 Power Wagon has all the right stuff to take you there. Like front and rear electronic locking differentials, the Ram Articulink front suspension with disconnecting stabilizer bar, 363 mm (14.3 in) of ground clearance, Hill Descent Control and Bilstein heavy-duty monotube shocks in all four corners. Count on skid plates to protect the 4×4 transfer case and gas tank and a front WARN winch rated at 5,543 kg (12,000 lb)—now with a new synthetic cable. Factor in the formidable 6.4L HEMI V8, a powerful 180-amp alternator and robust 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac All-Terrain tires, and you’ve got Ram 2500 Power Wagon—a truck like no other.
Outside, the Power Wagon is totally ripped, with powder-coated bumpers, moulded wheel flares and 17-inch aluminum wheels with Matte Black pockets. Inside, you’ll find similar character: durable, themed rubber floor mats and Power Wagon-exclusive embossed seats that pay homage to the aggressive tread pattern of those Goodyear All-Terrains.
It’s also the only passenger vehicle in America to come with a winch from the factory, and thanks to a synthetic (instead of steel) cable, that winch is lighter for 2019, but still rated for 12,000 pounds.
THE 6.4L HEMI® V8 WITH VARIABLE CAM TIMING (VCT) AND MULTI-DISPLACEMENT SYSTEM (MDS). Long-proven, the 6.4L HEMI V8 credentials start with Best-in-Class gas towing and Best-in-Class gas payload. Further advantages include VCT for consistent power across a wide torque band, the MDS FuelSaver Technology for four-cylinder efficiencies during highway cruising and a new 8-speed transmission. This powertrain delivers the performance and efficient use of fuel that won’t let you down. THE NEW ZF 8HP75 8-SPEED AUTOMATIC. New for Ram Heavy Duty and mated to the 6.4L HEMI V8, the fully electronic ZF delivers truly impressive engineering. Featuring more than 40 individual shift maps—to optimize performance, fuel economy and drivability. Inside, a compact and instrument panel-mounted rotary dial shifter helps free up space traditionally taken by a console- or column-mounted shifter.
The experience of driving a Power Wagon is a curious one. Off-road, it’s a monster, able to scale steep rocks, blast through sand dunes, jump when it needs to or crawl when it must. On-road, it’s a very different animal and surprisingly more civilized than you might expect. Two elements contribute to its civility: first are the Goodyear DuraTrac off-road tires on 17-inch wheels, which are good for all kinds of terrain but feature a tread pattern that doesn’t cause them to be crazy loud on hard surfaces like concrete or asphalt. Highway driving is surprisingly serene, and the immensity of the Power Wagon combined with the exceptional cabin insulation and quieter tires gives you the illusion of traveling a lot more slowly than you actually are. It’s easy to fly along at super-legal highway speeds without even realizing how fast you’re going — that’s how unusually refined the Power Wagon is.
This is certainly not a truck for everyone—say, those living in urban areas seeking a capable weekend off-roader. But for those with the lifestyle to take advantage what this truck does, they’ll be glad they can round up four or five friends, tow a big boat to a lake, and then charge to the top of the nearest mountain, just for the hell of it.
