Spy Shots—’20 RAM Power Wagon Undisguised


Here’s the ’20 RAM Power Wagon, completely undisguised while testing in Metro Detroit.

The Power Wagon’s hallmark is its hardcore standard equipment: locking differentials in the front and rear, a double-jointed front suspension with a front anti-roll bar disconnect and a 12,000-lb. Warn winch integrated within the front bumper. Don’t expect any significant changes here.

Exterior styling should run parallel to the RAM 1500 Rebel, but in a slightly more muscular fashion. Inside, expect the HD to mimic the 1500 with thoughtful design and premium materials. Tech should come from the Uconnect 4, with an 8.4-in. screen or the optional Uconnect 4C NAV infotainment system with the massive portrait-oriented 12-in. touchscreen center console display.

Expect the Power Wagon to soldier on with its 410hp, 6.4L V8 mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

The next RAM HD is slated to move its production location from Saltillo, Mexico, to Warren, Michigan, in 2020, in time for the next-generation heavy duty’s start of production. Expect an official debut sometime in 2019, likely the North American International Auto Show.
