2018 Ram Power Wagon – Engine Option
Performance wise, this new Ram Power Wagon is going all fancy. Experts predict that a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 engine will find its place under the hood. This mill is also considered as one of the most powerful gasoline burner in RAMs entire HD segment. With several tweaks, this powertrain should be adequate enough to churn out 410 HP @ 5,600 rpm and 429 lb-ft torque @ 4,000 rpm. It will integrate features such as cylinder deactivation and variable valve timing.
A heavy-duty 6-speed auto transmission will come as the only choice. However buyers might even get the choice for a manual shifting. With the increased power levels, fuel savings are guaranteed to see improvements too. For what it’s worth, the improved figures might go out as 14 mpg combined.
Specs and Design
2018 Ram Power Wagon should share its underpinnings with the standard RAM 2500 HD. This will include solid heavy-duty axles from American Axle Manufacturing, on both rear and front end. It will be improved on low-speed maneuverability as well. To achieve such, RAM will tune the suspension with a flexible set-up that will include the use of a special mount between the axels and control arm to cater an extended range of movement. Both rear and front suspension with use Bilstein shocks for an uncharted off-road capability. Like its predecessor, this new Ram Power Wagon 2018 will be coming with 33 inch GoodYear All-Terrain tires along with a rugged 4WD configuration.
Design-wise, this pickup will come with a refined styling. Up in the front fascia, the grille is to integrate fully blacked-out mesh-type intakes. The headlights will be blacked out too. This on-going black theme will be joined by the bumper which is supposed to wear rugged plastic cladding. Similarly, all 4 wheel arches will get plastic cladding to emphasize on its sportiness. The rear fascia will get little or no changes. However, the taillights are supposed to get multi-clusters of LEDs.
Inside, the cabin will be focused on comfort and practicality. The seats will come heavy bolstered and hold height adjustable head rests. The driver’s seat is supposed to get 10-way power recliner with memory setting. The steering wheel will share audio and connectivity controls. Ambient LED lighting might also be in stock this time around.
As far as pricing goes, this 2018 Ram Power Wagon will go easy on pockets and cost around $52,000. Similarly, dealerships might get this new gen pick-up truck during the second half of the 2017.
