AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — The base 2014 Ram Power Wagon Tradesman starts at $45,690, including a $1,195 destination charge, reflecting a $1,940 price increase over the 2013 model.
The redesigned Ram Power Wagon will debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show. Nick Cappa, a Chrysler spokesman, told Edmunds that orders are open now and that the truck will be on dealer lots sometime this spring.
The new exterior design includes new colors, lighting, wheels, grilles and tri-color graphics. The truck also features a new suspension that includes Bilstein shocks and 2 inches of lift.
There are three versions of the 2014 Ram Power Wagon.
The midlevel 2014 Ram Power Wagon SLT starts at $50,340, including shipping, reflecting a $2,190 price increase over the 2013 Ram Power Wagon SLT.
The top-of-the-line 2014 Ram Power Wagon Laramie starts at $56,015, including
shipping, reflecting a $2,435 price increase over the 2013 Ram Power Wagon Laramie.
The 2014 Ram Power Wagon is based on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 4x4 Crew Cab, but with a number of off-road-specific engineering enhancements, including a unique suspension.
The 2014 Ram Power Wagon is equipped with a standard 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine that delivers 410 horsepower. The engine is linked to a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine features cylinder-deactivation technology. When conditions are right, the engine automatically shuts down four cylinders to conserve fuel.
No EPA numbers are available because the federal government does not test heavy-duty trucks.
Chrysler says the SLT model "features the most visible change," including new graphics, black wheel flares and door handles.
Edmunds says: The Ram Power Wagon is one of the most legendary trucks in the U.S. market with a history that dates back to World War II. But buyers should be prepared to pay a premium for the upgrades to the new model.
