The 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is going to be a unique truck again. You won’t find this package on any other vehicle, despite rumors of being available for the Series 3. Definitely, this is not happening. Still, a high-output diesel is not going to be offered on the Series 2 pickup. So, the Power Wagon is going to rely on trusted and proven engines – a petrol unit and a diesel configuration. Either way, the ride in tough weather and terrain conditions will be a breeze.
A few sources reported the new version of the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is on the way. Recently, Mopar Insiders published spy photos of something that could be the muscle truck. Last year, the FCA added the 75th Anniversary Edition. The spotted vehicle seems to be based on the same version. It is not the first time the truckmaker brings similar upgrades to the same vehicle. We saw a lot of special editions of Ram 1500 (Kentucky Derby, Sublime Green, Hydro Blue…). Power Wagon is another interesting model to get several styling upgrades to draw even more attention.
2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon vs Ford F-250 Tremor
The 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is now being rivaled by the special edition of the Ford F-250 Super Duty. Well, we are disappointed since the Raptor is not the one, but the so-called Tremor edition. It is not a bad upgrade, but fans expected a lot more. Nothing compares to Raptor. Still, Ford has other worries, since the FCA delivered the TRX Hellcat version of the Ram 1500. Now, the F-150 Raptor is not the off-road king in the half-ton segment.
The battle continues in the heavy-duty tier with the Power Wagon vs Tremor rivalry. Ford’s package is still gaining a reputation and experts are sure it will find the way to buyer’s hearts once comparisons with the Raptor fade. With a powerful turbodiesel and 475 hp / 1,050 lb-ft, the Tremor is definitely one of the models to watch in 2022. Ground clearance of nearly 11 inches allows it to go over big obstacles.
2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Specs
A 6.4-liter petrol engine is standard for the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. For the HD truck, it is tuned at 410 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque. Soon, the engineers could increase outputs, since the powertrain can burst 475 hp and 470 lb-ft on certain SUVs. And the pickup is going to need all the available power to compete with Tremor. That is why we expect the turbodiesel Cummins to join the lineup. Still, Ram could again reduce the specs of this mighty unit, since it makes “only” 400 hp and 850 lb-ft for the standard Ram 2500. The Power Wagon will need more to respond to 475 hp and 1,050 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic gearbox is a power router. Of course, the 4×4 is standard, while the towing capacity is 8,600 pounds with a petrol unit.
There is a long list of upgrades the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is going to bring. Definitely, the main one is the 4×4 drive. Still, you can get it with some other versions as an optional addition. The Power Wagon is going to use the 4.10 axle ratio. Two-tone exterior colors are making the pickup more appealing. Unique graphics are there to remind you this is not an ordinary pickup. 17-inch wheels are standard and you can choose the best design for your ride. In any case, all-terrain rubber is wrapping them. Box is offering lighting, tonneau cover, and Mopar spray-in bedliner all as optional upgrades.
Leather upholstery makes the cabin more comfortable. The truck is available only with the CreCab and 6’4’’ bed. Uconnect 4.0 is still there while the company is developing the 5.0 system. A 12-inch screen is standard, while the navigation comes as an optional upgrade. Well-known companies will deliver audio systems. Harman Kardon is installing 17 speakers, and you can also opt for Alpine sound which includes a subwoofer. A power sunroof is one of the recommended upgrades for a more enhanced off-road impression.
The base MSRP of the 2022 Ram 2500 Power Wagon stays put. The truck will cost at least $50,000. With numerous upgrades, the price can end anywhere this value and $70,000. A diesel engine will push it even further. Still, the company is not making it official. The release date of the new Ram 2500 for the 2022 season is expected late this summer. Then fans will find out more about the off-road tuned version of the pickup.
