Motor Trend Names Ram 1500 Back to Back Truck of the Year

December 18th, 2013 by

Powerful, reliable, comfortable, and versatile are just a few ways to describe the
Ram 1500. And while we here at Ray Brandt Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Harvey, LA we’re such huge fans of this truck! It’s even won the Motor Trend Truck of the Year two years in a row! This is an accomplishment that no other model has ever accomplished in the history of that prestigious award! Let’s take a closer look at why this truck is so great.

In the testing, the Ram 1500 was pitted against many other pickup truck models, and the editors at the esteemed automotive publication ran all the models through a battery of testing, including towing and payload testing, acceleration, efficiency, safety, tech features, comfort, and overall value. After all the dust had settled, the editors chose the 1500 as the clear
winner, not just once, but for the second time in a row.

As a matter of fact, Editor in Chief for Motor Trend Ed Loh had this to say, “Not only did [the Ram 1500] withstand our rigorous testing, it thoroughly impressed our judges with its vast array of standard and optional equipment, and, most notable, its fuel-efficient, segment-exclusive EcoDiesel V-6. With 420 pound-feet of torque and up to 28 ‘Real MPG’ highway, the EcoDiesel is a true game-changer.” No wonder it’s such an inspiration!
