Dodge Celebrates The ’45 Power Wagon With A 75th Anniversary Homage

When it was introduced in 1945, the Dodge Power Wagon marked the first civilian mass-production 4×4 pickup to hit the market. Featuring an enclosed civilian cab and an 8-foot cargo box, it was powered by a 230CI flathead inline-six engine good for about 130HP and 205lb-ft of torque.

In celebration of the iconic truck’s 75th anniversary, Ram has unveiled a limited edition version of its 2021 Power Wagon model. Under the hood, the powertrain remains the same, but it’s been treated to an all-out visual makeover. On the exterior, the truck comes with exclusive trim items like black grille mesh, commemorative door badging, as well as Diamond Black door elements, tailgate graphics, and rock rails. Riding on 17-inch beadlock-ready wheels, it comes with 33-inch tires. Inside, the special edition has been outfitted with a Mountain Brown leather interior, including some commemorative “Power Wagon 75” logos and door inserts. Set off with gloss black instrument paneling, it cuts quite the handsome contrast. And for the first time ever, Ram is giving the Power Wagon a Uconnect 4C NAV with off-road pages that show everything from ride height to pitch and roll accessory gauges. Priced from $65,250, fourth-quarter deliveries will begin shortly.
