Ram will only build 1,500 of them.
Ram launches the new limited-edition Mojave Sand package for the 2018 Ram 2500 Power Wagon that makes the rugged pickup blend in better with the sand. If you like the desert-inspired look, act fast because Ram is only building 1,500 of these trucks, and deliveries start in the fourth quarter of the year. The special models go for $54,830 (plus $1,695 destination), instead of $52,595 for the standard Power Wagon.
Ram reports that the package-exclusive Mojave Sand beige color is the fastest selling shade on the Ram Rebel, so now the brand is making the hue available on this limited-edition Power Wagon. It's the first time for the color to be available on a Ram Heavy Duty model.
In addition to the exclusive shade, Mojave Sand package comes with an entirely black version of the Power Wagon's 17-inch wheels that generally have polished aluminum rims. Inside, there's black upholstery and an 8.4-inch infotainment system. The Heavy Duty Luxury Group option comes standard on these pickups that adds heated, power-folding mirrors, LED lighting in the bed, an overhead console in the cabin, and a universal garage door opener.
Ram doesn't touch the Power Wagon's mechanicals for this special edition. The trucks come with a 6.4-liter V8 that produces 410 horsepower (306 kilowatts) and 429 pound-feet (581 Newton-meters) of torque. It routes through a six-speed automatic gearbox with four-wheel drive, and locking differentials at the front and rear aid in traction. If the road really gets rough, an electronic disconnecting sway bar provides up to 26 inches (660 mm) of wheel travel. The pickup also has 14.3 inches (363 millimeters) of ground clearance, 30 inches (762 mm) of wading depth. A 12,000-pound-rated (5,443 kilograms) Warn winch can pull you out of any sticky situations.

About the Ram Power Wagon
Based on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 4x4 Crew Cab, the Power Wagon is packed with purpose-built off-road features, including a unique suspension with more than two inches of lift, 14.3 inches of ground clearance, front and rear locking differentials, an electric disconnecting front sway bar, 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires and a 12,000-lb. winch. Powered by a 410 horsepower, 6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 engine, the Ram Power Wagon is the most off-road capable production pickup available.
Dating back to 1945, the Ram Power Wagon’s heritage holds a distinctive position in the Ram Truck lineup as an example of engineering innovation and off-road capability with best-in-class, can-do toughness. The Power Wagon nameplate was initially produced through 1980. Early trucks were based on the Weapons Carrier (WC) series of Dodge ¾-ton military-use trucks built during World War II. The Power Wagon went on to become a well-known civilian vehicle. The iconic truck was reintroduced in 2005 and now exists as an independent model in the Ram Truck lineup.
