2012 Ram 2500 Power Wagon Named Four Wheeler ‘Pickup Truck of the Year’
“The folks at Four Wheeler magazine are serious off-road experts and have once again honored the Ram Power Wagon with this significant industry award,” said Fred Diaz, President and CEO of Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico — Chrysler Group LLC. “Straight off the dealer’s showroom floor, our Power Wagon is, by far, the most capable off-road truck. We’re proud that Four Wheeler recognizes this.”
To qualify for the competition, a vehicle must have been entirely new or have substantial mechanical revisions from a previous model year. For 2012, the award winning Ram Heavy-Duty lineup features an all-new six-speed automatic transmission for gas powertrains, available 6.7-liter Cummins diesel with 800 lb.-ft. of torque and an all-new RamBox for the 6-ft.-4-in bed.
“You can’t beat the versatility of the 2012 Ram Power Wagon,” said John Cappa, Editor of Four Wheeler Magazine. “Its aggressive BFG All-Terrain tires, tuned suspension, disconnecting sway bar, selectable lockers front and rear, and a Warn winch make it nearly unstoppable off-road, yet it’s still civilized enough to be daily-driven. The Power Wagon crawls over the most difficult rocky terrain just as easily as it speeds over rough dirt roads or commutes on smooth highways. Add in a 10,200-pound towing capacity along with multiple useful storage compartments, including the RamBox, and you end up with a remarkable factory-built ¾-ton truck that easily deserves Four Wheeler’s 2012 Pickup Truck of the Year award.”
