Ram has unveiled the new Power Wagon Mojave Sand limited edition 2500 HD truck for all your desert-moving needs.
We like special edition trucks here at HotCars. We especially like them when they’re based on big, rugged, off-road trucks like the Ram 2500 HD 4x4 Crew Cab. And we especially like them when they’re taller than every other truck on the block.
All that comes in the new Mojave Sand limited edition Power Wagon.
As previously stated, the Mojave Sand starts like as a Ram 2500 HD Power Wagon with the 4x4 Crew Cab. Power is the same 6.4-L HEMI V8 that powers so many of Fiat Chrysler’s vehicles which puts out 410 hp at the crank. A 12,000 lb winch is included, as is the new 8.4-inch UConnect infotainment touchscreen.
From there the Mojave Sand starts to get interesting, starting with the paint job. Naturally, it’s called Mojave Sand and does a great job of camouflaging the truck against a rugged rocky backdrop.
For extra sportiness, the wheels are all painted black. The Power Wagon logo is right underneath the giant Ram on the tailgate, while a Power Wagon vinyl wraps around the bed just after the cabin.
It’s not all aesthetic upgrades. A suspension kit lifts the Mojave Sand an extra 2 inches in comparison to a regular Power Wagon, providing a total ground clearance of 14.3 inches. Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires wrap each wheel in 33-inches of rubber and mean that getting into the driver’s seat might require a step ladder if you’re particularly short.
Best of all, the Mojave Sand edition includes the Heavy Duty Luxury Group of added goodies. LED bed lighting, overhead console, power/heated fold-away mirrors, and universal garage door opener are all standard features.
Pricing for the Mojave Sand starts at $54,830 plus an additional $1,695 destination fee. Production is limited to 1500 units with deliveries beginning in the 4th quarter of this year. Which might mean next year depending on when Fiat does their taxes. Let’s just call it December and hope for the best.
