The RAM line-up of trucks has been dominating the industry for many years now, and this will continue into 2022 with the release of the 2022 RAM 2500 Power Wagon. The Power Wagon has been around since 1945, and just recently had its 75th anniversary in 2021. The 2022 Power Wagon has many great new features to behold, and today we’ll be looking at what RAM has in store for us.
Historically, Power Wagons have included larger wheels, better shocks, bigger engine and powertrain options, and higher ride clearance. This stays true for the 2022 model year. The new Power Wagon will carry over some of the features that were present on the 75th anniversary 2021 model, such as 17-inch bead-lock enabled wheels, and rock rails. Popular features that were on the anniversary edition, such as power-folding side mirrors with auto adjustment memory, reverse lamps, power-adjustable seat sections, and auxiliary sections, and automatic high beam headlights will carry over as well giving the 2022 Power Wagon a high quality feel.
The 2022 Power Wagon will have a powerful 6.4-liter Hemi V8, which produces 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be paired with a 4×4 drive system and an 8-speed transmission. The max towing capacity will go up to 10,850 pounds, which is extremely impressive. Fuel economy numbers are unknown as of now, but will be announced the closer we get to release.
The interior of the new Power Wagon is one of the most impressive parts of this truck. In the front you’ll find 8-way adjustable leather bucket seats with heating and cooling features, power-adjustable pedals, a heated steering wheel, an upgraded full-length floor console, and LED accent lighting. Passengers in back also benefit from heated seats, as well as some in-floor storage bins. For technology, we’ll be getting a 12-inch Uconnect 5 Infotainment system, complete with Navigation and Off-Road Pages functionality. A 17-Speaker Harman Kardon stereo system will also be included, along with rain-sensing wipers and keyless entry functionalities.
It’s projected that the 2022 Power Wagon will be available for purchase towards the end of 2021. Dodge has yet to release any official details on release or price, so we’ll just have to stay tuned for more information.
