New Power Wagon look coming?

by David Zatz on

The Ram Power Wagon is an off-road monster, able to easily soak up rough terrain without any loss of control or mobility, while hauling heavy loads (or not).  Based on the Ram 2500, it’s due to be re-engineered and upgraded in a year or two — just like the Ram 1500, which gained strength while losing weight.

Spy photographer Glenn Paulina wrote that this Ram Power Wagon appears to have “a new grille design hiding behind the frontal camo mesh.” The 2017s gained a Rebel-inspired grille; what will the 2020s have? He wrote…

 Behind the camouflage mesh on the blue Ram Power Wagon prototype, we see what appears to be a new grille design.  There are vertical and horizontal tape swatches that pretend to hide the Dodge crosshairs, but it appears to be nothing more than a ruse.
Instead, we see a rectangular opening centered within the traditional grille aperture.  The central design feature shows signs of beveling and sculpting to provide a beefy grille-within-a-grille effect, reminiscent of the Ram Rebel and current Power Wagon.  There appears to be lettering within the central grille effect, but it’s obscured by tape.
Earlier Power Wagon prototypes appeared to retain the classic Dodge crosshair grille, so we’re not sure how this new grille design fits into the picture.  It may signal the end of the crosshairs on the Power Wagon, or perhaps it will serve as an optional upgrade, leaving the crosshairs to satisfy those mourning its dismissal from the 2019 Ram 1500 design.  Only time will tell.
