The Ram 1500 Was Named 2019 North American Truck of the Year!

Recently, it was reported that the all-new Ram 1500 had been named the 2019 North American Truck of the Year. This award, voted on by a panel of automotive industry experts, was announced earlier this month at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI.

This award is deemed to be one of the planet's most prestigious, since it's voted on by a diverse mixture of 60 U.S. and Canadian automotive journalists. The mild-hybrid eTorque technology offered for the 2019 Ram 1500 was one of the factors the jury cited as justification for the award, as were the premium interiors and 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen.

The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is lighter than ever, while delivering the durability and toughness that allows it to tow up to 12,750 pounds. The eTorque mild hybrid system is offered for both V6 and V8 configurations, and delivers impressive gains in fuel efficiency. The Uconnect $c with a 12-inch screen is just one example of the class-leading technology offered in the Ram 1500, and features split-screen capability, exclusive content from SiriusXM®, and 360-degree camera views.

In a press release, Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, stated, "The Ram 1500 is an important product for FCA and winning this award is one of the highest honors. In what is arguably the most competitive segment in the automotive industry, for the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 to be named North American Truck of the Year is tremendous recognition of the FCA employees who design, engineer and build a pickup that truly stands out."
