There are many things changing for the upcoming 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. The new model is going to be redesigned thoroughly. Also, the inside will be unrecognizable from the previous generation. On the outside, we can also expect tweaks and changes. The previous RAM 2500 had a lot of success in the full-size pickup category. Of course, this is commendable, since this segment is one of the most populated. The likes of Ford and GMC are also redesigning their flagship builds. This means that RAM has to keep up and give fans something to win their hearts. We are not sure what kind of changes are coming up.
But per reports, we can expect a more aggressive look and more ergonomic build. The overall body design will remain the same with minor tweaks. On the inside hopefully, we get better technology. This one is already obsolete and won’t look like a luxurious cabin. Some more personalization and customization options for the interior are also much sought after. RAM 2500 will still remain the working horse that it always was. But this time around, you might be able to work hard with some great style. Let us dig deeper into the review to check out what is coming for the new Power Wagon.
On the inside, the 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon has a lot of space for improvement. With pickups, it is not unheard of that cabins go without too much attention. Details and luxury are lackluster and styling is rushed. This is because traditionally, pickups were simple workhorses. And all that mattered was under the hood. Times are changing and now people actually drive trucks for everyday agenda. Of course, this means they prefer to do it in a nice cabin. Hopefully a comfortable one as well. So looking at seats, we must say they can be much better. Putting more cushioning and some lumbar support is preferred. This would allow people to walk out of their trucks without too much pain in their back. Also heated and ventilated seats are pretty much standard nowadays. So no point in not including that feature as well.
The instrument panel looks bland and empty. A bigger infotainment system should do the trick. Hopefully at least 13 inches in size. This allows both rows of passengers to join in on the fun. If there is a back row to be precise. RAM 2500 Power Wagon has several cab versions. You can control everything you wish from that infotainment system. A stereo system is the brand made and has over 10 speakers. The dashboard is digital as well. This is a nice step up towards the future and improves the safety standard. This way, the driver’s attention is always focused on the front and they don’t have to look around to change something. The steering wheel rich with buttons also helps this. We get standard safety features in the new RAM 2500 Power Wagon. This means automatic braking, pedestrian detection, collision detection, lane change alert, and such.
Aggressive Exterior Design
On the outside, the new 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon looks mightier than ever. As we already mentioned there are several cab options. If you choose to throw out one row of seats your cargo bed can be 8 feet in length. This would allow for hauling so much cargo. With 2 rows in the cabin, that same cargo bed shrinks to 6.4 feet in length. Still commendable. Wheels are beefier as well, so off-roading is definitely an option.
Front mesh looks angry with big RAM lettering. Headlight design is unchanged. On top of the truck, we get more lights to improve visibility if needed. Bumpers are prominent and protrude a bit. The hood though looks sportier and improves aerodynamics. The way the new Power Wagon was designed, it should be better with fuel efficiency. Also using lightweight materials where possible, surely helps.
Ram 2500 Power Wagon Engine Specs
Being the workhorse that it always was, the Power Wagon needs a monster under the hood to keep it running. The new 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will still come with a 6.4-liter Hemi-built V8 engine. This powertrain can produce over 410 horsepower and spin the wheels with a force of 430 pound-feet of torque. A diesel engine is also an option for RAM 2500. This time it is the Cummins 6.7 liter diesel. Turbocharged it can get you 400 horsepower with a whopping 900 pound-feet of torque.
The exact information is unknown, but these are the prime suspects for powertrains. Hybrid versions and electrification are possible. We know of fully electric pickups and how well they perform. Hopefully, RAM recognizes the potential and uses Ultium technology with at least 200 kWh to power the new RAM 2500. Fast charging should definitely be present on the pickup. This would allow for 100 miles with just 10 minutes of charging. Also fully charged, 300 miles is a standard. Let us see if RAM can top that with their pickup.
A smaller engine, perhaps a 3.0 liter V6 could be coupled with several electric motors. This would produce over 400 horsepower and save some fuel. Hybrid vehicles are taking over the world so why shouldn’t RAM take their shot with it. Both of the prime suspects for powertrains come with automatic transmission. Eight-speed automatic to be exact, and all-wheel drive is available. Read and front locking differentials also help. There is an adjustable suspension on the Power Wagon. This means that the new RAM 2500 won’t shy away from off-roading.
2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Price and Release Date
We will be able to enjoy this powerful truck in early 2023 or later in 2022. The new 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon will cost around $55000 for the basic trim. Special amenities and different trims will increase that price. What those trims give us extra, is still uncertain. For more official information stay tuned.
