The newest Ram Power Wagon is arguably the most imposing vehicle to be shown at the 2014 New York Auto Show, boasting a number of new aesthetic features, as well as a new graphics package.
Ram added a 6.4-litre V8 as an optional engine for 2014, but in the Power Wagon, it's the sole powerplant, boasting 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. An equally robust six-speed automatic backs up the brawny engine, while 4.10 gearing, an 11.5-inch rear axle and electronically locking front and rear diffs come standard.
A new five-link coil rear suspension and Bilstein monotube shocks should deliver a pretty comfortable ride, while the Power Wagon's off-road ability is complemented by the new Articulink system on the front suspension, which offers electronic sway-bar disconnect. 33-inch Goodyear rubber comes standard.
Naturally, the Power Wagon's stats are impressive - it can tow 4,903 kilograms (10,810 pounds), but it can also ford 30 inches of standing water and clear more than a few obstacles with its 14.5-inches of ground clearance.
We've got a pretty healthy gallery of live shots of the new Power Wagon, in addition to the video, images and press release provided by Ram when the big, bad truck debuted last week. Have a look and let us know what you think of the new pickup in Comments.
