The 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is definitely one of the most anticipated trucks that should come next year. Fans of this super capable machine are eagerly waiting to see how the new version will look like. As you know, the new generation of the legendary full-size truck started to arrive recently. Of course, the 1500 series was first to come.
The next move would be heavy duty series, which include this model as well. Unlike some competitors like Ford Raptor that are essentially light-duty trucks, Ram builts its performance version over HD models, over Ram 2500 truck, to be more precise.
The new generation of this model will be ready for the next year. So, the new Ram 2500 Power Wagon should come soon after. Exact details about the new model are yet to come. Still, we can make a few predictions.
2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Platform
Without any doubt, the new 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will use the same platform as the upcoming Ram 2500, which means practically the same architecture that recently debuted in the 1500 model. With this redesign, we saw lots of technical improvements. The new Ram 1500 didn’t make a complete switch to lightweight materials like Ford but stick to some more conventional design solutions. Still, the company has managed to save lots of pounds. Same savings are expected in HD models, which will be crucial for the model’s performances, especially if we consider that this particular version is designed for the off-road drive, to manage with every hard terrain.
It looks like the company has managed to get a good balance between weight savings and keeping the chassis rigid, so there’s no doubt that the 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will be a pretty capable machine.
2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Exterior Design
Several testing models of new HD series have been spotted on the road and it looks like the 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is among them. The new model still wears a complete camouflage, so it would be hard to give some more precise details about the final touch of the truck’s styling. Still, we have no doubt that the new model will feature the same design language as light-duty series. The new 1500 came just recently, with a completely new face, which should be implemented it this truck as well. Expect pretty much the same overall shape.
On the other side, the 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will come with lots of its own, unique details. Among distinctive styling solutions, expect to see lots of those that emphasize truck’s off-road performance character. As we already mentioned, the new model still wears a camouflage, so we can’t speculate about those most specific details.
On the other side, we are pretty sure that the new 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will come in the same manner as the previous model. This means lots of blacked surfaces, unique wheel design, off-road tires etc. Also, expect to see a massive underbody protection, considering that the new truck will mainly go over rocky roads and similar hard terrains.
Among many upgrades, the new version will also come with new suspension. There is the company’s innovative Articulink front suspension, as well as a five-link at the rear. It debuted in the new 1500 series and we are now expecting its derivate in this model. In any case, you can bet on higher ground clearance, more travel, better handling, and overall performances.
2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Interior
The overall interior design should be pretty much the same as on standard HD models. Furthermore, this means pretty much the same cabin as on the new 1500 model. In practice, this means pretty much only good things. One of the strongest points of this truck will be interior quality, which is better compared to the competition. You can count on top-grade materials across the whole cabin, on things like comfortable and massive seats, soft-touch surfaces and lots of standard equipment. This refers to tech features as well. Already base models feature a large 8.4-liter touchscreen, but you can count on an even bigger if you want some upgrades. Other notable tech features are things like push-button start, Bluetooth, three USB ports, sunroof, satellite radio, smartphone integration etc.
Of course, the 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will also come with lots of its own, distinctive details. A unique list of standard equipment seems natural, but we are about to see lots of styling tweaks as well. This refers not only to interior color schemes but also to unique details on the dashboard, steering wheel, pedals, trim etc. Also, we should see sporty seats and a few more details that will emphasize the truck’s performance character.
2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Engines
The engine has always been one of the distinctive details of this truck. While standard 2500 models are expected to continue with familiar 5.7-liter gasoline and 6.7-liter diesel engines, the 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will probably continue with a familiar 6.4-liter gasoline V8. This Hemi engine is well-known by car enthusiast and FCA uses it for various models, mainly for Dodge’s sports cars like Challenger and Charger. For this occasion, it comes with pretty much-unchanged specs. The outgoing model comes with the engine’s version that delivers around 410 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. However, we could easily see modifications for this redesign. That would mean slightly more power and torque. Also, count on the company’s familiar eTorque mild hybrid system. It provides additional torque and instant throttle response, even at lower RPMs.
2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Release Date and Price
All new-generation HD models should come next year. Of course, the base 2500 models should come first. The 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will come right after. At the moment, it seems too early to speculate about some more precise launch date. Still, many reports suggest the third quarter of 2019.
When it comes to the price, the current model goes around 54.000 dollars. Considering that the new 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will come in a pretty similar manner, we have no reason to believe that the new generation will feature a significantly higher price tag.
