New 2017 RAM Power Wagon at Browning Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram for Chino, CA
Offering the best in off-road capabilities, the heavy-duty 2017 RAM Power Wagon has all the horsepower you need to get to the most remote areas with ease. This "Off-Road Truck Leader" takes its inspiration from the late 1970's-early 1980's styling of the "Macho Power Wagon." Masculine details cover every inch of this legendary vehicle, and the combination of RAM's exclusive suspension system and a super-charged HEMI V-8 engine guarantee this is the right truck for even the toughest of jobs.
Under the Power Wagon's Hood
The 2017 RAM Power Wagon offers a best-in-class ride owed to RAM's unique front-end "Articulink" suspension system, which allows for increased flexibility and axle articulation due to the high movements joints and sway-bar disconnecting system. The five-link coil rear suspension has more than two inches of lift, and standard front and rear electronic-locking differentials enhance traction for a true four-wheel drive experience. The jewel in the crown of the 2017 RAM Power Wagon is the standard 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 engine, which produces an impressive 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. Able to tow over 10,000 lbs, the 2017 RAM Power Wagon doesn't trade power for fuel efficiency. Cooled exhaust-gas recirculation offers a more refined ride while lowering emissions. The Variable-Valve Timing and Fuel Saver cylinder-deactivation technology seamlessly shut down four cylinders when conditions allow, like during highway cruising. The result is improved low-end torque without the sacrifice of high-end power. The 6.4-liter HEMI engine comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, and can connect part-time to a manual-engagement Borg Warner BW 44-47 transfer case. With all this power, Hill-Descent Control lets the driver control the 2017 RAM Power Wagon during steep down-grades without braking or engaging the throttle. The 2017 Power Wagon's ground clearance is an impressive 14.3 inches due to the large tires and suspension lift systems. The undercarriage gives the 2017 RAM Power Wagon better clearance for navigating severe shifts in the incline or decline of the topography, and provides an incredible 30 inches of water-fording clearance. No matter what kind of terrain you need to tackle, the 2017 RAM Power Wagon can go the distance!
Design of RAM Power Wagon
The 2017 RAM Power Wagon borrows heavily from RAM's 1979-80 "Macho Power Wagon," an iconic truck designed to get dirty. With 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, the high lift of the 2017 RAM Power Wagon creates an imposing silhouette, while paint options allow you to create the look you want. The optional two-tone paint is a nod to older models of the RAM Power Wagon, while vintage-inspired decals are offered in two color variations dependent on your choice of vehicle paint color. Gloss Black graphics are available for those who choose Bright White, Flame Red, Bright Silver, Blue Streak or Granite Crystal as a main exterior color, while those who opt for the Black Power Wagon receive Bright Silver graphics. The front bumper cleverly conceals the 12,000 lb Warn winch, 90 feet of line and a roller fairlead, with only a heavy-gauge steel cable/dozer-sized hook visible. Two massive front tow hooks complete the package. Also available in the 4x4 Tradesman Crew Cab model, the 2017 RAM Power Wagon comes standard with "deep dish" rubber mats that help contain all-weather debris. Off-road themed graphics dominate the 8.4-inch Uconnect compatible touchscreen interface and 7-inch center cluster, while backup and cargo-view cameras are available optional add-ons. Other available additions include front and rear park-assist, remote start and the RamBox cargo management system. With so many options and design choices, the 2017 RAM Power Wagon is a truly versatile heavy-duty truck.
