We knew this was coming, but it's finally nice to see it here. We just got this from one of our spy shooters in Michigan. Frankly, we were hoping for something a little more significant, but then again, when you don't really have any competition, there's probably not a lot of motivation to do much changing.
Some have commented about the Ram 1500 Power Ram (or Power Wagon Light) at Mopar's booth at the recent SEMA Show in Las Vegas. You can bet the Ram Truck guys were there asking attendees what they thought, but we won't hold our breath. Still, a 4.56:1 ring-and-pinion, turbocharged Pentastar, ZF eight-speed transmission and 33-inch BFG would be a pretty nice option package to offer with the Ram 1500.
"We've gotten a look at a production-spec prototype for the updated 2013 Ram Power Wagon, caught testing on a Michigan freeway. This prototype is wearing the familiar Power Wagon color scheme, with a new chrome-accented grille, and the new headlights weaving their way throughout the entire Ram truck lineup. LED taillights are also part of the revamp.
"The revised Power Wagon gets mechanical makeup consistent with the beefy nature of the outgoing 2012 model. Interior upgrades are a major part of the 2013 model. The Power Wagon will also be available in ST and Laramie trim levels."
