Pros

Off-road capability of the Dodge Powerwagon is exceptional. Taking into account that it is a full size pickup, not a nimble little Jeep, it really gets around well with the 4x4, Warn winch from the factory, front and rear electronic lockers, 4:54:1 gears, Hemi power, higher than normal ground clearance, electronic disconecting sway bar and skid protection for the front differenctial and fuel tank

Cons

With great power comes great responsibiliy...and lower fuel economy :(. HOWEVER, in my pickup, slowing down just a little and putting in a higher octane fuel has resulted in very noticable milage increases. I can get as good as 16MPG on the highway. For a 3/4 ton gas fuelled truck that is OK considering the size and power.

Power Wagon — Towing is moderate on this truck. Keeping in mind it is not diesel, it should not be held to those towing expecations. With a little tender driving this truck can meet most towing needs of the weekend warriors. However, be prepaired for some MPG shock and don't pass up too many fuel stops as pulling a 5th wheel or like weighted trailers can lower milage into the single digits.

Pros

The most powerful truck I've ever owned.  Starts everytime and runs like a top.

Cons

Wish the back seat was bigger.  Wish it rode a little better.

Perfect — Overall a fantastic truck. With enough horsepower to pull down a house and get the mileage of a 1/2 ton truck. I do wish the back seats were bigger and the front seats were a little more comfortable. Well built truck.

Pros

the fact it has somewhere around 500 horsepower and it still has the same fuel economy as stock

Cons

i do dislike how short the bed is, and how heavy dodge has made it

Amazing Truck, All Around Useful And Incredibly Fun To Play Around With — after the exhaust was installed it gained an amazing sound on startup and running down the road. after the rebuild it gained a deeper note and some amazing performance. it has lost a little reliability, sometimes it does stall but it is still amazing for an everyday vehicle. nicest part is it can blow just about any vehicle away.

Great Truck, Performs Great While Providing Comfort — This is my husband's truck. First Dodge in the family, I was a bit skeptical, but it's very roomy, very comfortable, and a heavy hauler! Perfect for towing, decent mileage for a diesel (around 19-22mpg) and GORGEOUS blue paint job ;)

Never Worry About Not Being Able To Get It Done! — Performance - awesome! it could move a mountain. it is extremly quick and quite for a diesel. the 6.7L cumming turbo diesel is the BEST engine so far for a truck! So much torque. We love to take it down the beach, and we never have to worry about not making it out. We burn mostly a veg blend, but I am working on making it pure Veg. miilage is awesome, MPG on highway.....
