Ram Announces Pricing For Its Badass Raptor Fighter


The 2017 Ram Power Wagon comes with a lot of grunt for the money.

Back at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, FCA revealed the 2017 Ram Power Wagon as a competitor for the Ford F150 Raptor. Ford has already released its pricing for the Raptor, which starts at $49,520. FCA has just announced that the Ram Power Wagon will start at $51,695 when it goes on sale late this year. This is more expensive than a base Raptor, but less expensive than the more comparable Raptor Supercrew which starts at $52,505. The Ram Power Wagon is based on a Ram 2500, and comes with a unique design and off-roading features.

A list of the Power Wagon's off-road features includes: a 12,000-pound Warn winch, Bilstein mono-tube shocks, five-link rear coil spring suspension, smart bar electronic disconnecting sway bar, electric locking front and rear differentials, 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, complete under-chassis armor, 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 with 410 horsepower and 429 lb-ft of torque and tow hooks. The Power Wagon is an off-road beast with 14.3-inches of ground clearance, 26 inches of wheel travel and 30 inches of water fording. You will really need to find a tough environment to go beyond the Power Wagon's capabilities.

Luckily, this truck doesn't have to be all about off-roading performance. You can opt for the Leather & Luxury package for $4,495. This package will get you a Uconnect infotainment system, nine-speaker audio system, dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated leather seats, 10-way adjustable driver seat with memory and six-way adjustable passenger seat, heated steering wheel, backup camera, and Bluetooth with voice command as well as a few other niceties. The Ram Power Wagon will certainly be an interesting alternative to the Ford F150 Raptor, and brings some much needed competition to the segment.
