Ram Chooses Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires for 2014 Power Wagon
With the launch of its new 2014 Power Wagon, Ram Trucks says it has developed the most off-road-capable pickup on the market.
To balance the need for on-road civility and off-road performance, Ram chose to equip the Power Wagon with Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires.
Built to master the most rigorous off-road trails, the 2014 Ram Power Wagon is based on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 4×4 Crew Cab, but features a number of off-road-specific engineering enhancements, including a unique suspension with more than two inches of lift, locking differentials and a 12,000-pound winch.
Goodyear’s 33-inch Wrangler DuraTrac tires, size LT285/70R17, provide the Power Wagon with traction to face rugged off-road terrain—such as sand, mud and snow—while still offering a quiet ride on paved roads.
When venturing off-road, self-cleaning shoulder blocks help clear the tire’s tread of debris for enhanced dirt, gravel and mud traction, while TractiveGroove Technology™ offers enhanced traction in deep mud and snow.
On the highway, the DuraTrac’s highly angled center tread blocks enhance traction and lateral stability while reducing road noise.
