According to Four Wheeler’s technical editor, Sean Hilman, the Power Wagon’s superior trail performance in multiple off-road scenarios helped give it the win. And hardware features, like an integrated winch, front diff locker and powerful 5.7-liter Hemi engine really solidified the Power Wagon’s position.
“The new Power Wagon is quite nearly the best of all worlds,” said Four Wheeler Editor Douglas McColloch. “Its tall stance and body-on-frame architecture don’t get in the way of delivering a pleasant and relatively quiet highway ride. Its work-truck ethic is bellied by its eight-lug axles and 10,000-pound tow rating. And once off the pavement, deep in the dirt, the Power Wagon can simply go places, and do things, that no other fullsize truck on the planet can. Locking differentials, a disconnecting front swaybar, and a 12,000-pound winch—delivered straight from the factory—will do that for you. All in all, the Power Wagon is a very worthy winner of our Pickup Truck of the Year competition.”
This year’s competitors included four new pickup trucks: The Ram Power Wagon, the Ram 2500HD Cummins, the Ford SVT F-150 Raptor, and the Toyota Tundra 4.6.
