While Chevrolet’s Alaskan and Carhartt Silverado 2500 pickups might have been the most striking work truck concepts at last week’s SEMA show, Ram’s Macho Power Wagon might take the title for most practical thanks to one accessory in particular.
Thanks to a four-inch custom lift kit, 37-inch Nitto Trail Grappler MT tires and 18-inch beadlock wheels, the Power Wagon is a truck aimed at those whose jobs or hobbies require that they venture off-road. But the Macho Power Wagon displayed at Ram’s SEMA booth, named for a trim level from the 1970s, adds a bed rack that can adapt to loads of varying sizes that you might want to stow atop the pickup.
This RamRack slides up and down the Macho Power Wagon’s 6-foot, 4-inch bed and works in concert with the RamRack roof system which can lock down items with six tie downs atop the cab. The RamRack is designed to slide up and stow under the cab ‘s sail panel when not in use.
Mopar has coated this truck in a shade it calls Macho Mango. Black graphics adorn the side and rear and a more aggressive concept hood sits atop a 6.4-liter HEMI paired to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Performance is enhanced with a cold-air intake and the truck is further bolstered by a new front bumper equipped for trail use with a winch, winch guard and tow hooks.
Dual-wall, 5-inch Mopar exhaust tips, a pedal kit, concept off-road running boards, larger concept fender flares and a 21-inch heavy-duty LED light bar and clearance lights on the roof round out the build of this truck.
