75th anniversary Ram 2500 Power Wagon

The 2021 75th Anniversary Edition Ram 2500 Power Wagon is a tribute to the 1946 Dodge it borrows its name from, which is no doubt supposed to be the first mass-produced consumer 4×4 pickup.

Just like the first Jeeps, the original Power Wagon was a commercialized version of trucks built for the military during World War II. The model was originally marketed primarily as a work truck but became popular with off-roaders over the years.

The name came back in 2005 on heavy-duty pickups and has been used on other models since. The last update came in 2020 with the Ram 2500’s latest exterior design and a cabin borrowed from the light-duty Ram 1500.

The 7,000-pound 2021 Power Wagon 2500 comes with a 410 HP 6.4L V8, a 2-inch suspension lift compared to the other 2500 models, disconnecting sway bar, a full set of locking differentials, and built-in winch and plenty of underbody protection. The 75th Anniversary Edition package adds unique features that include commemorative badging, dark trim, a model-specific grille, 17-inch wheels with 33-inch tires, an interior featuring brown leather, brushed aluminum and gloss black accents, and a 750-watt sound system.
