2020 Ram Power Wagon: News, Redesign, Arrival

2020 Ram Power Wagon

The all-new Ram 1500 impressed the audience with the radical improvements in all aspects when the model made the debut early this year. The arrival of the new-generation, half-ton Ram also paved the road for the redesigned heavy-duty versions which should follow with the 2020 model year launch. The heavy-towing trucks are testing wrapped in the thick camo ahead of the debut probably early next year and we already saw several prototype versions including the brawny, off-road-focused Ram Power Wagon.

The new version of the off-road-ready Ram 2500 model rides on the rugged 33-inch tires and has lifted suspension which allows us to peek beneath. However, the details about the model’s mechanics still remain unknown ground in most aspects. The styling is also heavily disguised but the similar elements from the new Ram 1500 will surely find the way to the new generation heavy-duty Rams and Power Wagon. The interior will also follow the pattern of the smaller and better-selling Ram including also the tech features. The 2020 Ram Power Wagon will also arrive on the redesigned chassis and with the upgraded equipment which will boost both the performance and capability of the model.

FCA’s aging heavy-duty truck range is next for the full redesign after the all-new, half-ton Ram 1500 debuted early in the year as the 2019 model. The firm has already been spotted on several locations while testing the next generation of the heavy-towing trucks. We saw the models in the early stage of the development with the current body design but recently more spy photos appeared. The camouflaged Ram 2500 Power Wagon was caught by the spy camera and the 2020 Ram 3500 HD dually was also in front of the camera.

The new heavy-duty Ram 3500 and three-quarter-ton Ram 2500 will be followed by the GM’s twins the Silverado and Sierra HD for the 2020 model year and Ford is also reading some upgrades for its recently redesigned Super Duty lineup.

As for the new Ram 3500, details are still scarce. Still, based on spy photos and latest reports we can draw some conclusions and the same is with the powertrain lineup.

2020 Ram 1500

The fifth-generation Ram 1500 entered the stage at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show as the 2019 model and the new version is the breakthrough in all aspects.

However, despite we still discovering all improvements of the redesigned Ram 1500 the next 2020 Ram 1500 and new model years to come also promise more upgrades. The next model year should come with the availability of the diesel engine and new wheel and color options. Ram will also make the changes in the availability of some equipment. What Ram also promised is the supercharged Hellcat-powered Ram TRX version based on the Rebel TRX Concept model but this version will likely wait for the later model years to appear.

2020 Ram Rebel TRX: News, Design, Power

2021 Ram Rebel TRX

The all-new Ram 1500 is finally here and the new-generation version put the bar high for the class. The new Ram benefits from the structural improvements while weighs less looks more modern, has more refined and techier interior than ever and also employs the 48-mild hybrid system for most powertrains. The number of options is also eight as far as trims go plus cab styles, bed lengths and three powertrain options. The towing and payload capability also go up.

However, Ram has recently been in the news where the possibility of introducing the performance and off-road version was mentioned. The Ram Rebel is currently the most capable Ram 1500 and with the upgraded off-road hardware, one can engage the more rugged terrains. The redesigned Chevrolet also introduced the off-road ready TrailBoss version while the new GMC Sierra also brings the AT4 version with the more robust hardware. However, Ford’s F-150 Raptor still remains the king of the off-roading thanks to the 3.5- twin-turbo EcoBoost and improved running equipment. The Raptor receives some suspension upgrades for the 2019 model year.

However, it seems that with some details Ram is trying to hint the arrival of the new mighty Ram 1500 version which would have everything to challenge the impressive Ford Raptor. What’s more, the new Ram version could become the most powerful factory-made half-ton pickup truck model. The story is not new, however.

Ram presented the driving-ready Ram Rebel TRX Concept in 2016. The mighty, supercharged HEMI V-8 was under the hood of the Concept and combined with imposing look and powerful hardware. Now this model is in the news as the vehicle to enter the production.

Ram may have hinted the introduction of the most-powerful Ram 1500 when the picture of the new-gen model interior with the time on the clock set to “7:07” was released to announce model’s arrival. That was interpreted as the announcement of the version with the 707 hp Hellcat engine. However, the Ram Rebel Concept was also on the list of the upcoming vehicles on brand’s site.

And while Ram hasn’t commented on this topic, the reports claim the arrival of even two mighty Ram models. The Hellact powered versions is reported as the 2020 Ram Rebel TRX and 7.0-liter V-8-powered model should use the Rebel TR badge.

2019 Ram Power Wagon: Specs, Running gear, Price

2019 Ram Power Wagon

The buyers who need the towing and hauling capabilities of the heavy-duty truck but will spend more time off pavement on muddy and harsh roads also expect serious off-road skills. Ram’s trucks have many talents but when it comes to the off-road abilities, the Ram Power Wagon is brand’s heavy-weight, top off-roader. This model comes with the Hemi V-8 engine combined with a heavy-duty off-road hardware but still is compliant with the paved roads. The model also has the strong presence and unique look and interior.

The Power Wagon uses the Ram 2500 HD Crew Cab as the base and debuted at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. On the other hand, the light-duty Ram 1500 switched to the new chapter for the 2019 model year and brand is now shifting the course to the heavy-duty models which will arrive as the all-new models in a year or two. Having that in mind, we shouldn’t expect the 2019 Ram Power Wagon with big changes.

2019 Ram 3500: Specs, Design, Price

2019 Ram 3500

We saw more conservative-styled, lighter, bigger, more efficient and smarter Ram 1500 which debuted at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. However, buyers needing greater towing and hauling capabilities are turned toward more capable, heavy-duty Rams and also expecting the redesign of these models soon. Unfortunately, the 2019 Ram 3500 and smaller 2500 won’t bring the redesign to the game and we have to wait until 2020 model year to see reworked heavy-duty Rams. Ram is already testing new-generation heavy-sizers and prototype was spotted covered in the thick camo. Obviously, the model is in the early stage of the development and we don’t expect redesigned versions until 2020.

In the meantime, we will get the upcoming Ram 3500 with some changes in equipment range and possibly new package versions. The 2018 Ram 3500 brought a Limited Tungsten Edition version,  sport appearance package, upgraded infotainment features, etc. The 2019 version will largely be carryover.

2019 Ram 1500: News, Redesign, Price

2019 Ram 1500

Despite being one of the oldest designs on the market, the full-size, light-duty Ram 1500 has still been one of the most desirable trucks in the industry. The sales of the model have actually grown for about 5 percent in the 2017 model year compared to the same period a year before. This truck is known for delivering smooth ride thanks to the unique coil-spring rear suspension and also has a well designed cabin. The tough look also stands out this truck from others and model is also available in many configurations and equipment levels. However, the truck is missing some of the latest driver assistance systems and max towing capacity is bellow top competitors.

The new and redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 is a few months far from the debut and according to so far known details, the FCA will address truck’s weak points while not depart far from the roots. The model will introduce structural upgrades and evolutionary styling changes. Upgraded powertrains and the latest tech and safety systems will also be the part of the redesign.

The automaker used the 2016 State Fair of Texas to present this most powerful half-ton Ram ever which has the supercharged Hellcat engine under the hood combined also with the hardcore look and off-road hardware. If Ram’s plans are in line with the latest reports, the model which should steal some of Raptor’s sales could arrive by the end of this year and probably marketed as the 2018 Ram Rebel TRX.

2018 Ram Power Wagon

The 2018 Ram Power Wagon is engineered to spend most of the time on the challenging terrains and it is equipped for that job well. The Power Wagon starts from the Ram 2500 Crew Cab four-wheel drive version but it specialized as the off-roader and it comes with some pretty robust mechanics which can stand against any kind of terrain. The look of the model also speaks about its extreme off-road capability but you will also get everything you need inside the cabin.
