Show San Antonio Your Power in the 2500 Power Wagon
When work and play call for power and performance, there is no substitute for a well-equipped, full-size truck. Whether you are on your way out of San Antonio, Texas, for an off road adventure or hauling full loads on the job, the 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon exceeds expectations.
Strength on Display
The last thing you want from your truck is to fall short at a crucial moment. The 2017 Dodge Power Wagon provides torque and power to spare, giving you the muscle needed to face a wide range of driving conditions. The Ram’s highly capable design makes it a comfortable commuter, moving along I-10 at highway speeds. But there is nothing timid about the truck; it has the power to climb steep inclines and pull heavy loads.
Equipped with a 6.4L Hemi V-8, the 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon generates more than 400 horsepower and 429 lb-ft torque. Its strong throttle response adjusts for various conditions, ensuring smooth control on pavement and trails. Other powertrain options include a slightly toned-down Hemi, producing 383 horsepower and a workhorse diesel alternative. The 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel version boasts a staggering towing capacity of 17,980 pounds.
The pickup truck’s six-speed automatic transmission moves nimbly through its gears, but Texas drivers often opt for the six-speed manual version. It can only be paired with the Cummins diesel; however, creating a mighty powertrain prepared for the toughest tasks.
Comfort and Capability
The 2017 Power Wagon has all the features you’d expect from a modern machine, including an array of USB and auxiliary 12V DC outlets. The truck’s seats are heated, but San Antonio drivers may be better served by the ventilation feature incorporated into the Ram’s newly designed seats. Fine tuning your individual comfort is no problem with the Power Wagon’s adjustable equipment, including movable pedals to fit drivers of all sizes.
Its well-appointed cab is luxurious, but it doesn’t take away from the truck’s workhorse construction and capabilities. The Ram’s hydroformed steel frame includes extra supports, building on its tough and durable foundation. And its generous payload capacity and pulling power will not let you down when put to the test.
At Home Over Rugged Terrain
The 2017 Power Wagon does as well over rough terrain as it does on Highway 130. In fact, the Texas Auto Writers Association has named the 2017 2500 Power Wagon the organization’s official pick for “Off-road Pickup of Texas.”
Ground clearance of more than fourteen inches and its standard seventeen-inch wheels help the truck climb over uneven ground. And a “Smart Bar” assists multi-link front and rear suspension, keeping tires in contact with the ground. Monotube shocks smooth out even the roughest rides, and the truck’s 149-inch wheelbase steadies it over rolling terrain. An advanced system also assists during drastic descents, guiding brake and throttle functions for optimal performance moving downhill. Fuel efficiency varies, depending upon driving conditions, but drivers can expect to average less than 15 miles per gallon.
The 2017 Dodge 2500 Power Wagon stands out for its styling and appointments, but power and performance are what keep San Antonio drivers interested in this potent workhorse.
