Dodge Power Wagon   1999 Concept truck
Dodge's Power Wagon, which was shown for the first time at the 1999 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, January 3. The concept truck blends the raw power and capability of its 1946 namesake with a refined and modern design. The Power Wagon also creates a platform to discuss the latest technology in diesel engines and clean fuels, sending the message that diesels are one option for a "green" future.
The Power Wagon is powered by a direct injection, turbocharged Caterpillar 7.2 L in-line 6-cylinder diesel, which is already capable of meeting the EPA's 2004 diesel emissions ratings while generating 780 foot-pounds of torque. The automaker says The Power Wagon shares the name but little else with the 1946 workhorse vehicle of the same name. DaimlerChrysler said the engine was meant as an “overkill statement’ and it has no plans to make it. The concept truck sports a more refined and modern design than its predecessor, but details of the design are being kept under wraps until the auto show. Power Wagons were built from 1946 to 1968 as school buses, tow trucks, emergency vehicles and farm trucks.
Other amenities incorporated into the Power Wagon include:   Electronic tailgate, gas-discharged projector-beam head lamps, cognac- and navy-colored leather trim

Will there be a Crew Cab version?? Many hope so!
