2017 Ram Power Wagon vs 2017 Ford Raptor
Many truck shoppers are looking for either a practical truck that can do heavy hauling on the worksite or a versatile model that can meet weekend adventures or the daily commute with equal aplomb. However, for select drivers, there is a third option: off-road supremacy. When a truck needs to handle a whole lot more than the occasional gravel road, vehicle shoppers may turn to one of the models in this 2017 Ram Power Wagon vs 2017 Ford Raptor comparison.
The 2017 Ram 2500 Power Wagon is a heavy-duty truck that is designed to be able to drive over mountains, not just around them. With premium off-roading features like Bilstein shock absorbers, tow hooks, skid plates, a front winch, and electronically locking front and rear differentials, this truck can take on some of the toughest territory out there and come back in one piece. The 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor on the other hand is a lighter, performance-optimized model designed for sand racing, with many off-road features. These are different trucks, but their focus on power and off-road performance makes it worth taking a look at them together.

Towing Capability on the 2017 Ram Power Wagon
Depending on what drivers are looking for, that will determine whether the 2017 Ram Power Wagon or the 2017 Ford Raptor best meets their needs. The 2017 Raptor comes with the most powerful engine in this comparison: a 3.5-liter turbocharged V-6 rated for 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. However, for drivers looking for more slow-speed power than high-speed chops, the 2017 Ram Power Wagon will be the way to go. Though this model's standard 6.4-liter V-8 offers just 410 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque (which is a small number only when compared to the Ford Raptor's ridiculouslly high engine output), the Power Wagon has better maximum towing numbers. In this 2017 Ram Power Wagon vs 2017 Ford Raptor comparison, the Ram heavy-duty off-roading truck can trailer up to 9,790 pounds compared to the 8,000 pounds available with the Ford Raptor.
Both of these trucks come with a responsive four-wheel drive system and adaptive suspension elements, but the 2017 Ram Power Wagon comes loaded with features that can make an off-road adventure a breeze.
