Ram 1500 Wins Second Consecutive Motor Trend Truck of the Year

2014 Ram 1500Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year competition, one of the most well respected and thorough comparisons in the industry, has never selected the same model as a winner in consecutive years… until now. This year, the Ram 1500 has been named as the Motor Trend Truck of the Year for the second time in a row. This is exceptionally notable because the comparison also included a number of new and heavily revised models for 2014.

While Motor Trend drove a different model from last year, one equipped with the EcoDiesel V6 and the TorqueFlite8 eight-speed automatic transmission, the results still impressed testers. Thanks to its powerful diesel engine and high-tech features like air suspension, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel proved capable and efficient across a wide variety of driving conditions. Also of note is the upscale, comfortable interior that stands out among competitors.

“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,” said Motor Trend‘s Editor-In-Chief Ed Loh.
