Chicago Auto Show: 2017 Ram Power Wagon Gets Design Update

Ram denounced a tougher-looking chronicle of a off-road Power Wagon heavy-duty lorry during a 2016 Chicago Auto Show Thursday.

The strange Power Wagon was introduced in 1945 as a troops car before apropos a municipal truck.

It’s “the granddaddy of each four-wheel expostulate pickup in America,” pronounced Robert Hegbloom, who heads a Ram code for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

For 2017, Ram pays reverence to prior Power Wagons by mixing styling cues from a 1979-80 indication — a straight ribbon and lettering on a side of a pickup —  with a complicated and meaner pattern that replaces chrome with black accents. The grille, lighting, and 17-inch fake aluminum china and matte black wheels propitious with vast 33-inch tires are all new.

A customary 410-horsepower 6.4-liter Hemi V-8 is found underneath a hood, interconnected to a six-speed involuntary transmission. The engine has been calibrated to raise a truck’s off-road maneuverability. Four-wheel expostulate and an spindle and cessation package also assistance a car conduct off-road terrain.

Towing ability is rated during 10,030 pounds, and a pickup can hoop a cargo of 1,510 pounds.

The 2017 Ram Power Wagon will be made during a Saltillo Truck Assembly Plant in Coahuila, Mexico, and will be accessible after this year.
