Not to be confused with the more provocatively-named pickup from Kill Bill, the Power Wagon is a Ram 2500 kitted out with an extensive off-roading package, comprised of front and rear locking differentials, a disconnecting front antiroll bar that allows mo' better wheel articulation, a heavy-duty winch, beefed-up axles, a modified Hemi engine and revised suspension and tires— pretty much everything you need to go rock-crawling or jeepin' or mud-boggin' or whatever it is you like to call it. The Power Wagon appointments add $6,335 to the tag of a regular Ram 2500 SLT 4x4, but Dodge feels it would take at least 10 large to replicate the setup in the aftermarket. The first Power Wagons (equipped with five-speed autos) will crush dealer showrooms later this year, stickering for $37,660, and a cheaper six-speed manual will be offered while 2005 is still young.
