LAS VEGAS -- Jonathan Ward, founder of ICON autos in Chatsworth, likes to take iconic utility vehicles and give it a new spin.
On the latest project, the crew at ICON took on the 1965 Dodge crew cab.
ICON unveiled a special one-off Power Wagon D200 Reformer at the Optima booth at the Specialty Equipment Market Assn. trade show in Las Vegas.
Painted in glossy white with black accent, the truck has a new chassis and mechanical systems taken from a modern-day Dodge Ram 3500 series pickup. ICON’s goal, as always, was to take a vintage-looking vehicle and couple it with a modern driving experience.
The D200 has a 5.9-liter V-6 Cummins turbo-diesel engine outfitted by Banks Power in Azusa that will pump out 975 pound-feet of torque.
“We couldn’t be happier partnering with Banks on a project offering us the rare chance to fuse the bolder design elements of the D200 into a modern-day custom filled with all the power and drivability enthusiasts expect from each of our respective brands,” ICON lead designer and Chief Executive Jonathan Ward said in a statement.
The truck’s suspension will include a 4.5 lift kit to make way for 17-inch matte black Monster rims and BF Goodrich all-terrain tires.
