Ram 1500 First Truck to Win Back to Back Truck of the Year Honors

The 2014 Ram 1500 wins Motor Trend magazine Truck of the Year award for the second year in a row.  The magazine says it offers all the things truck buyers want: choice, value, great design, and more than enough power and torque.

This was the first time any truck has won the award two years in a row.  The 2013 Ram 1500 won the title last year.  Motor Trend’s Editor-In-Chief Ed Loh said, “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 V6.  With 420 pound feet of torque and up to 28 ‘Real MPG’ highway, the EcoDiesel is a true game-changer.”

 USA Today said The Ram stood apart because of “its new diesel engine and eight-speed transmission, which easily topped the other models in fuel economy.”

When put through the tests, Ram won due to its ample torque and excellent fuel economy.   The judges were also impressed with the air suspension and its sense of style and luxury.

This years’ competition featured a total of nine different trucks.  The winner was determined by a panel of judges after running the vehicles through a grueling series of tests at the 5,000 acre Continental Tire Automotive Proving Grounds in Uvalde, Texas.
