    Thumbs up DIESEL 2012 Power Wagon - NOT

    Back when PW came out I have always been a fan. Just recently my father asked me to find him a new truck that we can take on long journeys around N.America. Doing my research i came across this:

    So, first thing I do? Call the dealer. Actually 3. Two of them told me that its a mistake and its a typo on the website, PW only comes with HEMI blah blah blah. When I called the third dealership I specifically asked to speak to their sales manager, where he was polite enough and asked me if he could find out and call me back later. 3 hours later he calls me and offers me a job Saying that I was the first person in BC to point out to them that apparently you can order PW with Diesel (6.7 Cummins) now !!!! There is almost no info of this on the net yet, apparently this has been released just few days ago. Thought you guys may like this.

    Thanks, Rubicon Fan, for sharing the news. Here's the web page he copied
    http://www.dodge.ca/en/vehicle_home....00&mc=2500_POW

    Now the only question is, When will the Power Wagon diesel be available in USA?

    It's not. If you actually try to build your PowerWagon using online tool. Only available engine choice is 5.7 HEMI. Of course 6.7L is available as soon as you remove PowerWagon package. You wish. I wished.

    Us US folks would never get that kind of luck... Again it will be another one of those cool vehicles that we can only dream about getting in the US!

    I hate to disappoint buy I just got another phone call saying that IT IS a misprint on their website.
    "Hey Sam. This is Kevin from ***** Chrysler. I apologize for the inconvenience.

    There was a miscommunication between my dealership and the Chrysler Canada district Zone. The power wagon is still not available yet. It was a mis print on the web site. and this mistake has been confirm by Chrysler itself.

    I would really love to earn your business still. My dealership had asked me to inform you about making an inventory cost price on any other vehicle you would like to select as our way to apologize to you."

    Im glad to see that it was a misprint considering I have a diesel on order. Don't let the dealer lure you in with that whole, "We will sell you a truck at invoice price, its the best deal ever" line. I negotiated WELL under invoice on my new Dodge from a local dealer that has very little buying power compared to the big guys.
