New 2017 RAM Power Wagon at Bossier Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM for Hillsboro, TX
If you're in the market for a heavy-duty pickup truck that has a penchant for off-road conditions, then look no further than the 2017 RAM Power Wagon. The Power Wagon was first introduced in 1945 as the first mass-produced 4x4 pickup truck. Still going strong today, it is unrivaled in the segment in terms of on- and off-road capability. 2017 offers a number of new characteristic to keep the Power Wagon forward-thinking and at the front of the class.
Under the Power Wagon's Hood
The RAM Power Wagon's status as the ultimate off-road truck starts with the equipment under the hood. Every 2017 RAM Power Wagon comes standard with the 6.4-liter HEMI 16-valve V8 engine which offers 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. This distinct engine calibration is exclusive to the Power Wagon and offers nuanced and subtly optimized performance in off-road conditions. This HEMI V8 engine comes equipped with oil jets and high-volume oil cooler to help keep temperatures down and promote resilience. The Power Wagon's axles further add to its off-road utility and offer augmented fuel efficiency. The rear axle measures 11.5 inches and the front measures 9.25 inches and both feature electronic-locking differentials controlled by electro-magnetic actuators. The Power Wagon follows the same tenets as all other RAM heavy duty trucks, including the incorporation of a front-axle disconnect system, which is segment-exclusive. This system disconnects front drivetrain components when necessary which can regain up to one MPG. Modern and inventive technology builds upon the already impressive base created by the HEMI V8 engine to further increase overall efficiency and performance. Variable-valve timing works to reduce pumping loss, while cooled exhaust-gas recirculation helps to lower emissions and further optimize efficiency. The Power Wagon's uniquely designed suspension system promotes a comfortable and smooth ride even in treacherous environments. It makes use of features like modified control arms and Bilstein shocks to offer over two inches of lift. RAM's advanced three link front suspension helps to ensure greater roll stiffness, limiting how much the vehicle rocks from side-to-side on uneven terrain.
Design of RAM Power Wagon
The RAM Power Wagon features a new exterior design for the 2017 year that helps to support its identity as an off-road truck. The 12,000-pound Warn electric winch is mounted on the rear bumper and is strong enough to lift the competition off the ground. 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires feature a substantial tread-pattern that offers augmented traction in snow, mud and sand. 14.3-inch ground clearance, with a 33.6 degree approach angle and a 26.2 degree depart angle gives optimum capability on inclines and declines. It can also for waters up to 30 inches deep. The Power Wagon features stylish design elements that compliment the functionality and utility of the vehicle nicely. The brand-new grille features a silver "RAM" letter badge, while the blacked-out grille has black bezel bi-functional projection headlamps with LED marker lights on either side. Graphic features are also included and change depending on the exterior color of the truck; Power Wagons painted Black feature Bright Silver graphics, while Blue Streak, Bright White, Bright Silver, Granite Crystal, and Flame Red vehicles come with Gloss Black graphics. The interior is as well designed as the exterior and offers many well-integrated features to promote comfort and convenience during the ride. The 8.4-inch Uconnect display helps to consolidate information, while the optional backup camera in the tailgate offers increased vision and peace of mind when executing tricky maneuvers.
