RAM 1500 Earns Title of Motor Trend's 2014 Truck of the Year

At the beginning of this month, RAM received quite the exciting news. At Chrysler's Warren Truck Assembly Plant located in Michigan, it was unveiled that the title of Motor Trend's 2014 Truck of the Year was awarded to the one and only RAM 1500 for the second year in a row.

Edward Loh, Editor-in-Chief of Motor Trend explains, "For 2014 we had a large and highly competitive field of contenders for Motor Trend's Truck of the Year. At the end of the day, though, the Ram 1500 quickly rose to the top. Not only did it 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."1

A total of nine contenders were considered for the coveted title. Each was taken to the Continental Tire Automotive Proving Grounds in Texas to be evaluated on a variety of categories that included tow/payload, braking, acceleration and overall performance. The contenders were put to the test on an 8.5-mile course that could show off their true potential.

The RAM 1500 was the model that demonstrated the best performance in each of the six categories that determine the recipient of the award. This rugged pickup can tackle even the toughest of jobs, while still offering the safety, efficiency and innovation that drivers are looking for.
