Ram has unveiled the 2014 Power Wagon prior to a public debut programmed for next week in New York.

Based on the Ram 2500 Heavy Duty 4x4 Crew Cab, the latest Power Wagon has ditched the 383 bhp & 400 lb-ft 5.7-liter HEMI V8 in favor of a larger 6.4-liter delivering 410 bhp (306 kW) and 429 lb-ft (581 Nm) and equipped with standard cylinder deactivation technology to improve fuel efficiency. The engine is connected exclusively to a six-speed automatic transmission sending power to those massive 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires.

The 2014 Power Wagon offers 14.5 inches of ground clearance and is also capable of riding on surfaces covered in up to 30 inches of water. Thanks to its standard Warn electric winch it can handle 12,000 pounds and has an impressive towing capacity of 10,810 pounds.

Pricing kicks off at 45,690 USD for the base Tradesman version, followed by the SLT at 50,340 USD and the range-topping Laramie available for 56,015 USD. The latter features leather seats, chromed front grille, polished alloy wheels, along with a monotone paint scheme with painted wheel arches. It should be mentioned these prices do not take into account the destination chargers worth 1,195 USD.
