The approaching 2019 Dodge Ram Power Wagon will keep the existing powertrain, a 6.4-liter Hemi V8. However, a new engine will arrive and it is a 6.7-liter Cummins. But first, back to old 6.4-liter V8 that can produce 410 HP and 429 lb-ft of torque. This engine runs on gasoline and is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. This powertrain will benefit from a cylinder deactivation technology, and as a result, the fuel economy is improved.
Now we jump to a 6.7-liter Cummins. This mill is still not confirmed, and if it makes the production, the 2019 Power Wagon will improve its tow rating. A Cummins’ shares almost the same horsepower as Hemi’s engine, but torque is enormously improved. Old V8 offers 429 lb-ft of torque, while new 6.7-liter Cummins offers over 900 lb-ft of torque. It means that this pickup will improve its tow rating by a double.
