And the Fast Lane Truck Gold Hitch Award goes to… the 2015 Ram 3500 Heavy Duty! The heavy duty truck took the coveted award after impressing judges with its power, braking, fuel efficiency, overall comfort, and handling.
What ultimately set the Ram 3500 apart from competitors was its extensive list of premium features including a more than powerful 6.7-liter Cummins turbo diesel engine, cargo view camera and air bag suspension option.
Another one of the biggest tests the trucks underwent is known as the Eisenhower Pass “Ike Gauntlet.” It’s located just outside of Denver, CO and trucks are set-up to tow a 21,600 pound trailer to elevations of 11,000 feet. And wouldn’t you know it, the Ram 3500 made it look easy!
In a recent press release, Bob Hegbloom, President and CEO of the Ram Truck Brand said, “This award from the TFLtruck recognizes Ram’s overall commitment to engineering and innovation leadership, which includes a four-pillar list of best-in-class titles; fuel economy at 29 mpg, torque at 865 lb-ft, payload at 7,390 pounds and towing at 30,000 pounds.”
