Ram Power Wagon Gets 75th Anniversary Special

Power Wagon turns 75, gets new grille

  • 75 years since the first production 4×4 pickup

  • Gets special colours, off-road pages


Ram trucks is launching a special new version of the Power Wagon to mark 75 years since the first of the line entered production as the first-ever mass-produced 4×4 pickup. While it’s not exactly the original, it’s still a pretty cool looking truck.

It starts with that black grille, with thin vertical bars just like the 1946 originals. Though those originals have Dodge badges, not that massive Ram marque. The 2021 also gets black graphics on the doors, tailgate, and has rock rails with side-step capability.

Alongside the grille are new LED projector headlights with gloss black surrounds. The wheels are beadlock-capable 17’s wearing 33-inch tires for off-road traction. The Diamond Black pictured is offered, and there are 10 two-tone options available including all-new Molten Orange and Anvil shades. 75th Anniversary badges are on the door frames.

Inside, there are more Power Wagon 75 logos and door inserts, and the interior is finished in Mountain Brown leather. Gloss black inserts adorn the center console, while brushed aluminum surrounds the radio. A dash plate shows the model and build number, as well as power, torque, and both GVWR and GCWR.

As far as functional upgrades, the 2021 Power Wagon gets Off-Road pages for the first time that display ride height, transfer case position, pitch and roll, and have additional accessory gauges. A 17-speaker Harman Kardon sound system is standard so that you don’t hear those rocks and tree branches scratching your $73,290 off-road pickup.

Like last year, the Power Wagon gets a factory lift and specific rear suspension along with locking front and rear differentials and an electronic front sway bar disconnect. It also has a 12,000 lb Warn winch and 360-view cameras.
