Greenlight's 2017 Ram Power Wagon is the truck for today.

Ram Trucks, stylized as RAM (formally known as the Ram Truck Division) is a United States-based brand of light to mid-weight commercial vehicles established in 2009 as a division of FCA US LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. It was spun-off from Dodge marque, using the name of the popular Dodge Ram line of trucks. Ram Trucks' logo was originally Dodge's logo.

Unveiled earlier this year, the 2017 Power Wagon starts life as a Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Crew Cab and is enhanced with a long list of off-road hardware and a new grille design trickled down from the Ram Rebel.

Under the hood is a 6.4-liter HEMI V-8 making 410 hp and 429 lb-ft of torque mated to a six-speed automatic. The Power Wagon boasts substantial upgrades to its suspension system, including Bilstein shocks and an electronic disconnecting front sway bar. Compared to the normal Ram 2500 HD, the Power Wagon is lifted 2.3 inches higher for 14.3 inches of total ground clearance and the capability to ford water at depths of up to 30 inches. Other goodies include front and rear locking differentials, a front-mounted Warn winch, 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, Power Wagon decals, and skid plates.

Inside, the Power Wagon-exclusive seats are embossed to look like tire treads. If thatís not your style, a Leather & Luxury package can be had for $4,495 and includes leather seats, among other features.

Customers can also opt to buy a truck with Power Wagon hardware without the garish visual treatments. Ram says the 2500 HD Tradesman Crew Cab 4◊4 is available with a Power Wagon package for an additional $8,450, which brings the truckís price to $48,315.

Greenlight currently offers modern current pickups from Chevrolet, Ford and Ram. It's nice that an American company offers up the current bodystyles from all three domestic makers. I particularly like the Ram casting the best of the three. This hobby exclusive model was just released last month and was issued before the real 1/1 went on sale. It's a large casting that's well over 3.25" in length.

:unsure: I still have problems listing these as Dodge trucks rather than Ram trucks. Hard to get used just the Ram name, I guess. This is a nice, rugged looking pickup from GL and a most welcome addition to their lineup of pickups from Ford, Chevy and Ram! :D

I am not a fan of the "Ram" brand, it feels unnecessary. What was wrong with the Ram being a Dodge truck? Hyundai is now doing the same thing with their Genesis luxury sedan. The diecast presented here appears to be of exceptional quality though, Kudos to Greenlight.

Very nice Power Wagon from GL. Sadly every one of them I saw on the pegs had visible in the package issues otherwise I would have gotten one.

Neither the real truck nor the model do anything for me, due in part to GL's usual quality control issues. The orange certainly stands out though.
