2017 RAM Power Wagon – Ready for Off-Road Adventure

 

2017 Power Wagon

We are often very proud of the truck we own and feel it is the most powerful one the road especially when passing on a crowded road and the acceleration takes our breath, or when traveling off-road to a remote location with the feel of confidence that the road ahead is only an obstacle to be conquered, then to find out at the next turn we can go no further.  Look no further, RAM has a solution for off-road travel and will restore confidence in the ability of a truck to go further when rounding the next turn.

Off-Road Capability

RAM has announced the unveiling of such a truck. The all new, redesigned 2017 RAM Power Wagon. This famous truck has been around dating back to 1945 with a continuing legacy of Americas most powerful and reliable off-road truck. The Power Wagon legacy continues with an exceptional exterior design and a modern interior design that makes the Power Wagon the most off-road capable of all other trucks on the market today. Capable of reaching extreme terrains with the towing ability and payload capability that is required in a 4X4 truck..

Power Wagon Seats

Interior design includes a choice of two interior designs with major upgrades. Choices include a premium trim option of accented leather seats with embroidered Power Wagon and RAM Logo’s or a all black leather trim design and a seven inch center cluster with Power Wagon graphics to complement the never get lost 8.4-inch Uconnect screen featuring an off-road theme. Included is a newly designed steering wheel and awesome center stack inspired by the RAM Rebel logo.

The heart of any vehicle is the power plant and the 2017 RAM Power Wagon has the best. Standard is the famous 6.4L HEMI 16-valve V-8. This engine is full of advanced technology. Standard is 410 horsepower and a peak torque rating of 429 lb-ft. Couple in the 66RFE six-speed automatic transmission with a part time manual engagement Borg Warner BW 44-47 transfer case  and the steepest and most rugged terrain is easily ascended.

Power Wagon Tires

Ground clearance is not an issue with standard 17-inch wheels and 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires. Off-road travel in tough places is accomplished with an advanced three-link front suspension reducing body lean and roll. A class-exclusive electronic disconnecting sway bar allows the front axle to move more independently of the frame  As in all RAM HD Trucks a segment exclusive front-axle disconnect reduces loss and improves overall efficiency in all driving conditions.

Coming Soon

All accomplished with a new 2017 Ram Power Wagon from Hoyte Dodge. Available in the Fall of 2016. Reserve yours now.
