The Best Off-Road Ram Trucks
When it comes to finding a truck that can take on even the toughest outdoor activities, nothing can match a Ram. Boasting a strong lineup of powerful, reliable, and well-outfitted trucks for everything from the worksite to that mountain trail, the 2016 Ram lineup now at your local Dodge Ram dealer delivers it all - and, you may find, so much more.
What really stood out to us about this year's Ram lineup were the impressive offroad capabilities that seemed to come standard in a number of Ram models. If you're looking for a tough, ride-ready pickup with all the capability, style, and gear needed to take on even the toughest trails, consider one of these excellent new Ram trucks.
Here's a quick look at the three most impressive off-road ready Ram trucks new for 2016. Come with us on this journey through another year of Ram and see for yourself why we're more excited than ever about these jaw-droppingly capable vehicles.
2500 Power Wagon
When it comes to supreme capability both on the trail and on the highway, few options can match the powerful combination of performance and custom gear found on the Ram 2500 Power Wagon. Built to be a champion of the mud and sand, the Power Wagon was created to take on the toughest challenges you can throw at it - and does it with style every time.
Boasting Ram's legendary 6.4L Hemi V8 engine, the Power Wagon certainly lives up to its name - made most obvious, it seems, by the Power Wagon's 10,030 lb max towing capacity and 1,510 lb max payload capacity, both of which make the Power Wagon one of the strongest options available for a moderately priced truck, starting at $51,160 MSRP.
Plus, the Power Wagon is uniquely outfitted to get you and your travel partners out of sticky situations thanks to a standard electric winch and 17-inch polished chrome wheels outfitted with all-terrain tires. That means that mud, sand, and snow are simply no problem for the Power Wagon - provided, of course, they're not a problem for the driver.
The Power Wagon can also scale just about any rocky pass with skill thanks to a standard front disconnecting stabilizer bar and standard Tru-Lok front and rear axles with a 4.1 axle ratio. This means you can have no fear taking on those huge obstacles, knowing full well your Power Wagon will be able to bend and climb to overcome just about anything.
With such an impressive setup that simply seems bound for the trail, few trucks are more impressive for offroaders than the new Ram 2500 Power Wagon.
Ram 1500 Rebel
Of course, we all know that some trips aren't as rough and tumble as others, and for those looking for a fun weekend out on the trail with no shortage of impressive style, there's no better option than the Ram 1500 Rebel. Boasting a bold style that stands out as easily in the middle of the woods as it does in the middle of a crowded city street, the Rebel is here to help you turn heads as you roar on by - with all your passengers loving every minute of the ride.
The first thing you and anybody else is likely to notice about the Rebel is its bold, muscular profile, only accented by tough stance on 17-inch aluminum wheels and functional ornamentation like a working hood scoop for improved engine efficiency. This helps bump the standard 5.7L Hemi V8 engine up to an impressive 15 mpg city and 22 mpg highway, all while generating up to 359 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft of torque to get you out of any tough situation in the field.
An available class-exclusive RamBox cargo management system makes bringing everything you need with you easier than ever, especially thanks to the illuminated, drainable cargo bed complete with a lockable cover, dividers, and tie-downs. This means you can haul whatever gear you'd like to bring on your weekend outing with ease - and without giving up on style.
Available halogen headlamps guarantee you'll be able to make your way safely on those back roads, while the available Ram UConnect infotainment system with an 8.4-inch diagonal touchscreen and available 9-seaker Alpine audio system can keep you and your passengers happy and entertained no matter where you find yourselves on the trail. For those looking to get out offroading who want to bring a little bit of class along for the ride, there's simply no better truck for the job than the Ram 1500 Rebel.
There are, of course, those adventures that can't simply be taken on with power alone - sometimes, it seems, you just have to have the right gear to take on the job. In these cases, there are few trucks more well-outfitted to take on the wild than the Ram 2500 Outdoorsman. Boasting some of the most impressive off-road features of any Ram vehicle, the Outdoorsman is the optimal tool for any especially rough-and-tumble outing.
Not only does the Outdoorsman feature the same 5.7L Hemi Engine and 8.4-inch UConnect system found on the Rebel, it also boasts some of the strongest performance capabilities in the model line, with a max towing capacity as high as 17,21 lbs and a max payload around 3,300 lbs. That means you can bring a whole lot more than your weekend gear, and can easily bring along a small boat or a few jet skis with no problem.
But what makes the Outdoorsman so well-suited to tough situations is its standard high-strength tow hooks, making this truck a uniquely capable member of the Ram family. Add on the standard fog lamps, the available dual 220-amp alternators, and the standard anti-spin rear differential and you've got a vehicle not only well outfitted to take on the trail, but also powerful enough to never slow you down. And with premium cloth bucket seats and a 10-way power driver's seat there to keep everyone comfortable, you may just want to keep going for miles.
There's simply no doubt about it - Ram trucks are nothing short of the ultimate off-road vehicle for your next great adventure. No matter what you're looking for - be it style, power, or gear - there's a Ram truck ready to deliver. Check one out today and get moving - the wilderness calls.
