The current generation of Ram’s HD pickup has been around for about three years and it looks like the company is preparing a mid-cycle refresh. This update is about to bring all kinds of novelties, which will be applied to all versions of the truck, including the 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. This version has always been special in terms of off-road upgrades and we have no doubt it will continue in the same way. With this refresh, it should become even better in terms of aesthetics, while mechanical upgrades don’t seem so likely.
In any case, you may count all kinds of updates, particularly at the front. We count on a lot of new styling details but we also have no doubt that the model’s exclusive features will remain untouched. Some sources speculate about the possibility to see a version with Hellcat engine but we don’t find this particularly likely.
The 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon should hit the market sometime in the second half of the year.
2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Design
This is expected to be a typical mid-cycle refresh. Therefore, the focus will probably be on aesthetics. We expect to see some slight revisions in certain areas, particularly at the front. This refers to parts like bumper, grille etc. Still, keep in mind that this version already comes with a full load of exclusive styling details, such as numerous blacked details, including fender flares and grille, black headlight and taillight bezels, powder-coated bumpers, exclusive 17-inch wheels etc.
Still, the Power Wagon has always been more about mechanical upgrades and we don’t expect bigger changes in this aspect. Although essentially a Ram HD pickup, this truck comes with all kinds of upgrades, starting from upgraded off-road suspension, locking front and rear differentials, disconnecting sway bar, hill descent control, skid plates, all-terrain tires etc.
On the other hand, we don’t expect to see bigger changes on the inside. The current model features a cabin that’s not particularly different from other HD models. Still, there are a couple of exclusive features, such as a power-adjustable cloth bench seat and front and rear rubber floor mats.
We expect that the 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon’s interior will continue in the same way. That’s not an issue at all, considering that we are talking about the nicest cabin design in the class, characterized by attractive aesthetics, excellent build quality and pretty fine materials. Furthermore, there is a long list of standard equipment, particularly in terms of tech goodies, where you may count on the recently introduced next-generation infotainment system.
2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Engine
Under the hood, the 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will continue with the well-known 6.4-liter V8, which puts out 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque in this iteration. The engine comes in pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which does a fantastic job too. Of course, four-wheel drive is standard.
Some sources also speculate about the version with the Hellcat engine. Allegedly, this version would be called the Power Wagon TRX and it would be powered with a 6.2-liter HEMI V8, with a max output of more than 700 horsepower. However, this is still just a rumor. The officials are still quiet, so make sure to take this with a big reserve.
2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will hit the market sometime in the second half of the year. The starting price should go around 55.000 dollars, while models like Ford F-250 with Tremor Off-Road package will be among key competitors.
