At this point, we are still waiting for the officials to provide us with information about the next year’s model but if we can trust rumors, there is a big chance to see some interesting updates in Ram’s HD lineup. This refers to all models, including the 2023 RAM 2500 Power Wagon, which would be affected by this update as well. Currently, the details are unavailable, but we are pretty sure that most of the changes will be those in terms of aesthetics and new features.
With updates or without, the overall layout will remain the same. The current version of the Power Wagon has been around for a while and it stands out in many ways. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is the off-road performance, thanks to all those hardware upgrades. However, this pickup also comes with various aesthetical upgrades, which accentuate its performance character.
We don’t expect that the 2023 RAM 2500 Power Wagon will arrive before the last quarter of the year.
2023 RAM 2500 Power Wagon Design
Essentially, the 2023 RAM 2500 Power Wagon will remain the same. However, the possible mid-cycle refresh would affect this pickup in many ways. This primarily refers to the styling, as the new version would get the same updates as the rest of the lineup. That could be changed in areas like the grille, bumpers, headlights etc. However, we have no doubt that this version will continue with all those details that accentuate its off-road character. Those are things like the blacked grille, numerous black-plastic surfaces, black fender flares, powder-coated bumpers, unique 17-inch wheels and similar things.
Still, the core of the truck will probably remain unchanged. This pickup is all about off-road performance, so it’s no wonder it comes with all kinds of upgrades. Some of the highlights are standard four-wheel drive, two-speed transfer case, locking front and rear differentials, skid plates, electric winch, hill descent control, disconnecting front stabilizer bar etc.
When it comes to interior design, we don’t expect to see bigger changes. The current Ram lineup already features the nicest cabin in the class and this particular version comes with a couple of highlights, such as unique color schemes, stitching and similar things. The next year’s update should bring no significant change, though there is always room for minor tweaks.
Just like the current model, the 2023 Power Wagon will also come in just one cab style and bed length. We are talking about a Crew Cab style and a 6-foot 4-inch cargo bed. The cabin is spacious and comfortable and accommodates adults in both rows with ease.
Novelties in this aspect are always possible, especially when it comes to tech and convenience features. Still, we believe that most things are about to remain the same. Other than off-road upgrades, this model shares most of the features with the Big Horn trim. Therefore, it comes standard with goodies like an 8.4-inch infotainment screen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, keyless entry, power windows and locks, trailer brake controller, heated mirrors etc. Also, the list of standard equipment includes a couple of features from the Laramie trim, such as power-adjustable seats, leather upholstery, upgraded instrument display, LED interior lighting etc.
2023 RAM 2500 Power Wagon Engine
Things under the hood will probably remain the same. So, you may count on a familiar 6.4-liter HEMI V8, which features a max output of 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes in pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission, which does a fantastic job. Furthermore, four-wheel drive is standard, as well as a two-speed transfer case and locking differentials.
Some sources speculate about the possibility to see the 2023 RAM 2500 Power Wagon with a diesel engine. Of course, that model would use the more powerful version of the 6.7-liter inline-six Cummins engine, with 420 horsepower and 1.075 pound-feet of torque. However, the chances to see such a version on offer are minimal.
Power Wagon TRX Rumors
We can also hear rumors that suggest a TRX version of the Power Wagon. In that sensation, this HD pickup would use the same Hellcat engine as the Ram 1500 TRX. We are talking about the super-capable 6.2-liter supercharged V8, which puts out around 702 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. However, this is just a rumor and the chances to see such a version are almost zero.
2023 RAM 2500 Power Wagon Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2023 RAM 2500 Power Wagon will arrive sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price that goes slightly under 60.000 dollars. The key competitor should be Ford F-250 with Tremor Off-Road package.
