You can find our full off-road review of the 2010 Ram Power Wagon HERE.
Nimble isn't a word that's used to describe full-size pickup trucks very often, especially when it comes going off-road, but the 2010 Ram Power Wagon is remarkably agile on the trail for a 6,600-pound crew cab. The heavy duty hauler uses a solid front axle, front sway bar disconnect and front and rear electronic locking differentials to crawl its way over -- or around -- obstacles.
While we've briefly driven the Power Wagon off-road in Texas and compared its specs head-to-head against the go-fast Ford F-150 SVT Raptor, we hadn't had time to spend a full day wheeling in it. That's fixed now. We spent a long Saturday with the Power Wagon at Johnson Valley off-highway vehicle park in the high desert of Southern California. Johnson Valley had a variety of terrains to drive through, from rocky paths to sandy washes and dry lake beds.
We're busy writing our evaluation but in the meantime, here's video from the trail.
