The upcoming 2023 Ram 2500 Power Wagon has been spied, wearing a lot of camouflage. From the photographer’s statement, the new prototype was spotted few days ago on the streets of Detroit. The Power Wagon is a truck that features much more off-road equipment than the regular Ram 2500. Besides, it also comes with a more sporty interior offering comfortable seats and better techs.
However, like the standard model, the Power Wagon should use the same potent 6.4-liter Hemi V8 engine and optional 6.7-liter turbocharged diesel inline-6. No doubt, this heavy-duty off-roader is one of the most eye-catching trucks on the market. Ram recently revealed that the final version would be introduced in the summer, while sales might starts later in the year.
