Spied: 2017 Ram Power Wagon Tow Testing

Ram PW Spy 1 II

Our spy shooters caught the 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Laramie during high-altitude tow testing in the Rocky Mountains without its trademark macho graphics package.

Given the size and shape and amount of flex in the dual-wheel box trailer, we'd estimate the load to be about 8,000 or 9,000 pounds, and a good test for the Hemi Power Wagon on the steep, high-altitude Colorado grades.

As you can see, this isn't so much a traditional spy photo gallery, complete with camouflage graphics, as it is about tow testing the 6.4-liter V-8 Hemi to its limits. Shown at the 2016 Chicago Auto Show, the brawny Power Wagon is getting a new look that brings it more in line with the light-duty Ram 1500 Rebel. The 2017 Power Wagon will even offer seats imprinted with a tire-tread pattern just like the Rebel.

The 2017 Power Wagon lineup will include a fully loaded Laramie (pictured) as well as a new, less expensive and more basic Tradesman Power Wagon. Expect 2017 Power Wagons to make it to dealerships later this fall.

ugly truck they need a new design

Every vehicle has an auxiliary brake to be used when PARKING and it is called a PARKING BRAKE.
It is sad that people who are 1) too clueless to properly operate an electronic shifter, 2) too lazy to use the PARKING BRAKE when placing a vehicle in PARK are going to force the Government to regulate yet another aspect of products.

This isn't a FCA issue, it is a "too stupid to operate a complicate machine" issue.
