2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Grille: Spied

PowerWagon.grille.g06.KGP.ed II

The Ram 2500 Power Wagon holds a special place in the truckmaker's heavy-duty lineup, delivering spectacular rock-crawling capabilities to a class focused on towing capacity and maximum payload hauling.

Not long ago, Ram decided to offer "well-dressed" and relatively "stripped" versions of the Power Wagon for the 2500, which we like. Among our favorite features on the stealthier, less expensive Power Wagon Tradesman is the crosshair grille and absence of decals.

However, from what our spy shooters have just sent us, that might be changing — or staying the same. We're not sure. What we do know is the front end of a prototype caught their eye.

"Judging from this new prototype caught testing on Michigan highways, it looks like the 2020 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is getting an additional new grille design. Is this a sign that another version of the Dodge crosshair grille is on the way out?

"Behind the camouflage mesh on the blue Ram Power Wagon prototype, we saw what appears to be an all-new grille design. Sure, there are vertical and horizontal tape swatches that pretend to hide the Dodge crosshair, but it appears to be nothing more than a ruse. Instead, we see a rectangular opening centered within the traditional grille aperture. The central design feature shows signs of beveling and sculpting to provide a beefy grille-within-a-grille effect. Of course, it could be the same Rebel-like design from 2017, but there appears to be something a little different.

"Certain versions of the earlier Power Wagons retain the classic Dodge crosshair grille (when ordered with the less expensive Tradesman trim level), so we're not sure how this new grille design fits into the 2019 or 2020 model lineup. It may signal the end of the crosshair on the Power Wagon, or perhaps it will continue to serve as an optional downgrade, leaving the crosshair-style to satisfy those now mourning the elimination of the classic look from the all-new 2019 Ram 1500."

it would be cool if RAM offers the base model V8 gasser with the new E Torque hybrid.

Tape crosshairs. Bezel inside a bezel with lettering that spells : RAMANATER

Looks like just taped cross-hair. Actual road salt remnants of grille imprints shows a rebel grille design.

Curious and putting this out there for opinions:

Would anybody want to see "Dodge" anywhere on the truck again?

Can't call it a Dodge anymore.

No matter what Ram does it will still look better than any Ford made in the last 20 years! LMBO!!!!!!!!!

I like the 3/4 ton Dodges except for the lack of rollover safety.

Just type Dodge Ram rollover in google images to see what I am talking about.

Are they keeping the old body style for the HD trucks. I hope so, the new Ram looks like an SUV now.

Be nice if i could get a 6.2 outside of the Denali package

Would like to see another engine option beyond the 6.4L Hemi. 2nd Gen EcoDiesel would be a welcome change for this purchaser. $4+/gallon gas is coming back this spring.
