2016 Ram Power Wagon: Trail Driven

But there’s another unique offering that combines immense capability with some exclusive factory parts: the Ram Power Wagon. Based on the Ram 2500 crew cab, the Power Wagon is perhaps an unlikely candidate for an off-road vehicle, but Ram is so confident in its go-anywhere abilities that it recently invited me to Arizona to drive the 2016 Power Wagon up the back way to the Crown King Trail from Lake Pleasant Regional Park to the tiny mountain town of Crown King. And after 50 miles of trails, dirt, rock and moderate obstacles that would seriously challenge most “off-road” trucks, I came away mightily impressed at this monster’s abilities.

The Power Wagon is big, one of the biggest trucks in the Ram lineup. It’s a physically imposing beast when you walk up to it and attempt to haul yourself up into its high-riding cabin. The suspension has been lifted 2 inches higher than a normal 2500, and 33-inch tires have been added to give it a ground clearance of 14.3 inches. There are no rocker step rails, so hope you’re tall or have a decent reach to haul yourself up into this rig.

Once in place the view is commanding, and the cabin is quite comfortable with big seats and a thick steering wheel. For 2017, you can get the Power Wagon option on several different 2500 trims, including the base Tradesman, which will forgo all of the cosmetic frippery and simply add the off-road mechanical goodies to your work truck. Or you can get fancy with a new grille, a retro-style sticker package and a new interior that mimics the popular Ram 1500 Rebel trim level, which brings tire-tread patterns and Power Wagon logos to the seats.
