The Ram Power Wagon is historically known for being the badass of the road with its muscle and power and burly structure, the Power Wagon screams off-road. However, the latest Power Wagon, which draws from the seven decades of established presence in the pickup truck scene, will be more luxurious and tech-heavy than any of its predecessors.

For the 2019 model year, the Ram 2500 Power Wagon will have a rather significant update in its looks. The changes might look similar to the recently revealed 2019 Ram 1500, especially when it comes to the front fascia and the lines. The cab, box, and doors, however, are more or less identical to the outgoing Power Wagon model.

Some of the new things we can expect are the 17-inch aluminum wheels, the bigger grille, the taller nose, and the reshaped LED taillights.

The new 2500 Power Wagon may look burly and muscular outside but inside, it’s all about luxury and comfort. The overall appearance of the cabin will remind you yet again of the newly released Ram 1500 series and boy, does it look good on the 2500 Power Wagon.

The vehicle sits up to six passengers and is exclusively in crew-cab configuration and standard six-foot, four-inch box that matches the outgoing model. The steering wheel design, dashboard, center console, HVAC vents, and various controls all feel more luxurious. It also comes with a unique upholstery for the seat patterns, an optional 12.0-inch infotainment screen, 17-speaker audio, top-down 360-degree camera system, and power-release tailgate.

All these luxuries have to come with power, right? It comes with a standard 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 that features cylinder deactivation and Variable Cam Timing. The total output is pegged at 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. With the proper configuration, the 2500 Power Wagon should be able to offer a payload increase of 1,660 pounds with the base model while towing increases to 10,620 pounds.

There are a lot of big trucks that have been revealed at the Detroit Auto Show. It’s almost as if the motor show was exclusively organized for pickup trucks like the 2019 Ram 1500, the Chevy Silverado 1500, and the 2018 Ford F-150.

Lighter with Better Aerodynamic

In 2015, the F-150 lost much of its weight. The same can be said this year for the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado 1500. On top of the list is the Silverado, which shed 450 pounds compared to the other V8 models. The Ram 1500, on the other hand, lost 225 pounds. The Ram and the Chevy lost their pounds because of the use of aluminum.

Where it differs is here: the Silverado used aluminum on its hood, doors, and tailgate; the Ram on the hood and the tailgate; and the F-150 used aluminum on all exterior parts for a total weight lost of 732 pounds.

Engines and Transmissions

Both the Ram and the Chevy are being powered by a V8 engine. The Ram has a 5.7-liter Hemi V8 that produces 395 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, the Silverado again used a 6.2-liter V8. Experts predict that the new Silverado could churn up to 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.

Ford F-150 is still using the same 5.0-liter V8 engine, but you now have the option to go with a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine. This one produces 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque.

The Rams will be paired with an eight-speed automatic; a different one will be set for the V6 and the V8. The Silverado will get a 10-speed automatic for its 6.2-liter V8 and diesel. The F-150 will also use a 10-speed automatic transmission.
