Getting straight to the nitty-gritty of things, this is one hell of a pickup truck from RAM. This 2017 RAM Power Wagon is new and the iconic American truck manufacturers want that top spot back again. Their USP is – off-road capability. But there are many other modifications as well in this new pickup.
Looks like the Beast:
- Curb Weight – 7044 mm.
- Wheelbase – 149 inches.
2017 RAM Power Wagon – Exterior Body Changes and Interior Cabin Design
And this is mostly because of a new RAM grille design. The Power Wagon design cues make this pickup truck immediately recognisable. Newly designed headlights beside the black mesh grille come with LED marker lights and powerful projector lamps.
The front bumper, a massive one, flaunts two workmanlike fog lights on either side and hides a 12,000 pounds warn winch hook. A bulged up hood gives a fair indication of the monster underneath. Silent wheel arches give the overall design a certain calm power.
The hood decal is mirrored by similar 17” black toned wheels. This black color tone and design immediately set this pickup truck apart from any other one on the road.
There are two interior modes which are available for buyers. Both come with Power Wagon lettering and logo inserts. But what’s important is that there RAM has given ample though and inputs to make the interiors more than regular in this 2017 RAM Power Wagon.
A 7-inch “Power Wagon” centre cluster plays the opening graphics for an 8.4-inch Uconnect infotainment screen. Drivers and optionally passengers too can opt for more heated seats. Diesel Gray and Sedoso Black fabric touches and inlays outline Wrangler tire tread patterns mirroring the pickups actual footprint.
Black follows into this cabin too with similar instrument panels, button or knob clusters and other inlays. All-weather mats and other optional utility enhancements make up what is a functional and well-designed interior.

- High-volume oil cooler.

Suspension and Tranny:
Bilstein shocks, electronically controlled front sway bars and front-rear axles, 2-inches plus lift – these are only some of the features which make this car a true-blue off-roading sensation. Independent front and rear electronic disconnecting front sway bar is a first-time introduction into this mid-size heavy-duty pickup truck segment.
RAM’s trademark and industry-leading Articulink suspension design work in tandem to make this pickup cross over any terrain. Also, RAM’s 4×4 is a time-tested drivetrain and adds to this pickup trucks’ already rich repertoire of off-roading capabilities and skills.
