Chrysler expands the 2012 Ram Power Wagon lineup
Since being introduced, the Ram 2500 Power Wagon has been offered only in the SLT trimline (shown on the right) with few options inside and out but buyers of the 2012 Power Wagon will get to pick between the SLT, a new low-line ST and the new premium Laramie trimline. The Ram Truck brand management believe that this will make the Power Wagon even more appealing as the Power Wagon ST will appeal to those who want the rugged capabilities without the interior goodies and chrome trim while the Power Wagon Laramie will include more upscale features inside. You know, for those who need leather, heated seats and a high end sound system when tearing through the wilderness.
The 2012 Ram 2500 Power Wagon ST is expected to appeal most strongly to commercial uses like fire services, mining companies and forestry services so many of the main changes from the SLT trimline are things that you would expect from a work truck. The heavy amounts of chrome found on the previous Power Wagon are removed in favor of black trim on the bumpers, the mirrors, the fender flares and the grille treatment. Inside, the Power Wagon ST offers an interior layout similar to the standard Ram 2500 ST with the exception of the control specific to the Power Wagon.
