Veterans Day holds special meaning for millions around the U.S. including the folks at Ram who announced their 2021 Power Wagon 75th Anniversary Edition.
The four-wheel-drive Ram Power Wagon traces its roots back to World War II where it earned the respect of Americans fighting overseas. Its popularity among veterans prompted Ram, which was then under the moniker Dodge, to roll out the nation’s first 4×4 pickup for model year 1946 (shown above on both sides of the 2021 Power Wagon).
Seventy-five years later and the iconic truck lives on in a 75th Anniversary Edition. The pickup features a unique “Power Wagon 75 Years of Service” door badge, black grille mesh with a Gunmetal R-A-M grille badge, diamond black door, tailgate graphics and rock rails with side-step capability.
Premium headlamps with gloss black surrounds and new 17-inch painted cast aluminum beadlock-capable wheels with 33-inch tires round out the exterior content. Diamond black crystal is available in monotone while two-tone exterior colors include maximum steel metallic, granite crystal metallic, billet silver metallic, hydro blue, patriot blue, delmonico red, flame red, bright white, olive green, molten orange and anvil.
Inside, the 2021 Ram Power Wagon features a premium mountain brown leather interior, including bucket seats with a commemorative “Power Wagon 75” logo and door inserts, gloss black instrument panel inserts, center console and dashboard badges, and a dark brushed aluminum radio surround with piano black silverline accents.
Power Wagon uses Uconnect 4C NAV with a 12-inch fully configurable screen, SiriusXM 360L customized listening experience and, available for the first time on Power Wagon, off-road pages that show ride height, transfer case position, pitch and roll and accessory gauges. A powerful 750-watt, 17-speaker Harman Kardon sound system is also standard.
As the most capable production off-road truck in the industry, Power Wagon features a unique suspension, factory lift, electronic transfer case, locking front and rear differentials, electronic disconnecting front sway bar and a 12,000-lb. WARN Zeon-12 winch with synthetic line as standard equipment. Power Wagon also features a 360-degree camera, which includes forward-view camera gridlines to help navigate obstacles.
The Ram Power Wagon 75th Anniversary Edition which comes equipped with a 6.4-liter HEMI V8 (410 hp, 429 lb.-ft. torque) and an 8-speed automatic has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of $65,250, plus $1,695 destination.
