Classic Details & Comfort Revived
Desert Power Wagons, a business located in North Carolina that has now released its take on the legendary Dodge Power Wagon. Compared to the original model, DPW’s rendition is said to be much smoother. While previously being sluggish, noisy and far from convenient to drive, this newly refurbished variation pledges to merge power as well as coziness into one fantastic deal based off the platform of the contemporary Ram 2500.
The Dynamic Performance Works (DPW) framed its vehicle with a 6.7-liter Cummins turbocharged six-cylinder motor, along with a 68RFE six-speed programmed gearbox. The powertrain has an appraised 385 strength and 930 lb-ft of torque, yet purchasers also have the choice to arrange a diminutive 5.9 refinement. It creates more vigor than Legacy Classic Trucks’ almighty Power Wagon modified classic, yet if a Cummins wasn’t adequate, they already fabricate other adaptations with a Hellcat engine as well.
North Carolinian builders have abandoned the age-old Power Wagon frame, opting for the ladder framework used in the Ram 2500 instead. Off-road parts such as a robust Borg-Warner 4-wheel drive transfer case and Carli coil springs with 2.5-inch elevation along with remote-reservoir shocks are included.
Visually, the majority of the Power Wagon’s traditional traits are kept in place, returned to flawless condition, and coated with a Gun Metal Grey Metallic finish (extra hues can be obtained). Nevertheless, all its existing halogen lamps and other lighting fixtures have been modified to LEDs. Its domineering presence is finalized by 20×10-inch Method race rims sheathed in 40×14.5-inch Atturo Trail Blade Boss mud terrain tires.
As previously emphasized, the DPW Power Wagon is unbelievably convenient to use. Accessing it is effortless due to electrified side steps adding ease and grace. Any similarities it has with the luxury Mercedes-AMG G63 from Mansory are overshadowed since this vehicle preserves its toughness as a work truck. Its bed consists of robust components which consist of stainless steel and sturdy oak wood panels.
The interior of the truck takes its cue from the inside of the Ram 2500. Appointed to a very high typical, it comes with heated sport seating of black leather, which can be adjusted by power mechanism, in addition to having a third passenger seat at the rear. Further, its amenities include heating and cooling facilities.
The truck already provides a delightfully smooth driving experience, which is augmented by an abundance of present-day protective and user-friendly characteristics such as anti-lock braking system, grip management, stability control, tire pressure monitoring, a back-mounted camera, and cruise control.
DPW’s restomod is sure to have Dodge fans swooning, although it’s not a bargain. The model featured here costs a whopping $379,000 – an additional $79,000 compared to Vigilante 4×4’s utterly stylish Jeep Cherokee S restomod.
