The upcoming 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will hit the markets later this year. For a start, spy photos are already here and we can spot a couple of visual upgrades. It is the same rugged Power Wagon but some things will gain updates, which is great. It is an off-road-oriented truck that comes with additional equipment.
Furthermore, the interior provides more quality materials as well. The Power Wagon is available in a crew cab configuration and this model will continue to offer a potent 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine. The price will probably slightly increase and here’s everything you need to know about the new Power Wagon and its upgrades.
Ram Power Wagon Spied With Improved Design
The 2022 Ram Power Wagon has been spotted a few weeks ago. This prototype wears a lot of camouflage so some exterior parts are still a complete mystery to us. As we said, the same rugged appearance is present once again. The platform is the same so the vehicle’s dimensions are intact. However, the front fascia wears a more upright design with a wider jail bar grille. The headlights will largely remain and we should expect additional blacked-out exterior features.
Huge R-A-M lettering is easy to spot and the side profile is showing the new wheels option. New exterior colors are also a possibility but this is not confirmed yet. The current Ram 2500 Power Wagon offers nice-looking 17-inch eight-spoke wheels as standard. Generally, regular Power Wagon will now look closer to its unique 75th Anniversary Edition.
New 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will also introduce a couple of interior updates. The changes are far from significant and the manufacturer will focus on high-tech features. As you probably know, Ford is about to release its updated Super Duty lineup and Ram will try to combat this. Thanks to that, new Power Wagon will arrive with additional driver-assistance aids and new infotainment system.
On the other hand, the cabin design will be the same, and even the layout of buttons is unchanged. The Crew Cab variant is available so Power Wagon provides a room for five passengers. Hopefully, Ram will provide even more interior updates.
Diesel Engine Gains More Torque
Under the hood, the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon comes with a familiar and powerful 6.4-liter Hemi V8 gasoline powertrain. This engine generates 410 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. As this is an off-road variant, a four-wheel-drive system is standard and Ram also offers a standard eight-speed automatic transmission. Optionally, you can get a 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel engine.
The diesel output is capable of developing 400 horsepower and 900 lb-ft of twisting power. Ram will probably improve the torque ratings in order to compete with Ford and Chevrolet. Fuel economy is not that great as the gasoline engine delivers only 13 mpg combined. A diesel engine is better and it provides 17 mpg combined. Finally, this amazing truck offers 10,350 lbs of towing capacity.
2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Price, Launch Date
The price of the next 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will slightly increase. Thanks to that, this model will cost around $55,000. Ram is yet to reveal more details but we know the Power Wagon variant will be launched in the second half of 2021.
