When it comes to off-road capability, no other pickup truck compares to the Ram Power Wagon,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico— Chrysler Group LLC. “Expanding the Power Wagon’s availability to ST and Laramie models is not only what our customers have asked for, but also a true measure of the truck’s success and popularity with truck buyers.”

The Ram Power Wagon lends itself to duties requiring reliability, durability and capability. The ST package will appeal to customers such as fire and emergency services, mining companies, oil exploration and forestry services for daily off-road duty. The Ram Power Wagon ST features single-tone paint, a black grille, black front/rear bumpers, black fender flares and black mirrors with optional clearance lamps. The interior is unchanged from the ST trim level with the exception of additional controls for Power Wagon’s unique features.

The Power Wagon package also includes a floor mounted, manual transfer case shifter. On the outside, the bold exterior features body-colored fender flares, chrome mirrors, bumpers and grille, and unique badging. The addition of Power Wagon to the Laramie model gives the off-road linebacker a tuxedo and builds on the success and heritage of the Power Wagon nameplate.

2012 Ram Power Wagon
The 2012 Ram Power Wagon features award-winning interior appointments and distinctive graphics, but it’s engineering that makes Power Wagon the ultimate off-road pickup. New for 2012, the most capable off-road pickup truck on the market is now available with a new RamBox storage system for trucks with 6-foot-4-inch beds and a new heavy-duty six-speed automatic transmission. Ram Power Wagon continues to offer class-exclusive electric-locking front and rear differentials, class-exclusive electronic disconnecting sway bar, the legendary 383 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine, 33-inch off-road tires, a custom-built Warn® 12,000-lb. winch, Bilstein shocks, underbody skid plate protection and a 4.56 axle ratio. Additionally, the Power Wagon is rated to tow up to10,250 lbs. with a Class 4 trailer hitch, all standard.

Built for all terrain
The 2012 Ram Power Wagon lives up to the heritage of Power Wagons built in the 1970s. There is simply no other pickup on the market that matches the capability. Ram Power Wagon takes the road less traveled while comfortably taking passengers and gear along for the ride.

Built to master the most rigorous off-road trails, the Ram Power Wagon is based on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 4×4 Crew Cab. The Power Wagon has a 14.5-inch ground clearance, compared to 12 inches on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty. The vehicle’s approach angle is boosted to 35 degrees, the departure angle is increased to 26.5 degrees and the breakover angle is enhanced to 25.5 degrees. This gives the Ram Power Wagon significant clearance for navigating a variety of off-road trails, especially when tackling severe inclines and declines.

Providing optimal balance between on-road civility and off-road capability are 33-inch BF Goodrich All-Terrain T/A tires, which feature a beefy tread pattern to help grab ledges along the trail and deliver optimum traction through sand, mud and snow.

Underneath the 2012 Ram Power Wagon are generous underbody protection components. A steering damper skid plate and fore-aft bars bring together the transfer case and fuel tank skid plates, resulting in armor that minimizes underside damage and rock wedging.
