Chrysler’s Ram division will add the ST and Laramie models to its 2012 Power Wagon lineup the company said yesterday at the Texas Auto Writers Association’s Texas Truck Rodeo.
The Ram Power Wagon ST model will be aimed to fire and emergency services, mining companies, oil exploration and forestry services for daily off-road duty. It includes body-colored fender flares, chrome mirrors, bumpers and grille, and unique badging.
The interior is unchanged from the ST trim level with the exception of additional controls for Power Wagon’s unique features.
The Laramie trim features more luxury features than previously offered on the Power Wagon, like leather seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and wood trim, and starts at $51,000.
On the outside, the bold exterior features body-colored fender flares, chrome mirrors, bumpers and grille, and unique badging. As to potential Power Wagon Laramie customers, the press materials only state that the Laramie trim “gives the off-road linebacker a tuxedo.”
All 2012 Ram Power Wagons are equipped with electric-locking front and rear differentials, class-exclusive electronic disconnecting sway bar, the legendary 383 horsepower 5.7-liter HEMI® V-8 engine, 33-inch off-road tires, a custom-built Warn® 12,000-lb. winch, Bilstein shocks, underbody skid plate protection and a 4.56 axle ratio.
Additionally, the Power Wagon is rated to tow up to 10,250 lbs. with a Class 4 trailer hitch, all standard.
