2020 Ram 1500 Wins Green Truck of the Year

The 2020 Ram 1500 has been decorated with yet another award as it wins the 2020 Green Truck of the Year for the second year in a row. Green Car Journal made the announcement in San Antonio at the 51st annual San Antonio Auto and Truck Show.

The new 2020 Ram 1500 paired with the turbocharged 3.0-Liter EcoDiesel V-6 continues to deliver more and more as it offers increased horsepower and torque, better fuel economy and minimizes harsh noises and vibrations. The 2020 Ram 1500 offers an 8 percent increase in horsepower, now producing 260 hp, and a 14 percent increase in torque, making it best-in-class as it produces 480 lb.-ft. The 2020 Ram 1500 also leads the way in towing capacity as well as best fuel range among EcoDiesel trucks.

“The all-new EcoDiesel engine and our eTorque mild-hybrid V-6 Pentastar and V-8 HEMI® engines offer Ram 1500 customers multiple fuel-efficient powertrain choices," said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. "We are honored to receive the Green Truck of the Year award, affirming our commitment to powertrain technology leadership in the truck segment."

Green Car Journal editors looked at all potential truck models in the U.S. market for the Green Truck of the Year award. They considered environmental attributes in addition to traditional criteria such as capability, versatility, safety, value, and style. Once the Green Car Journal narrows it down to five finalists, the winner is decided by a jury composed of automotive experts and Green Car Journal staff.

"The Ram 1500 stands out in the pickup field, not only with its exclusive use of eTorque mild-hybrid technology, but also with a more powerful EcoDiesel engine that’s EPA rated up to 32 highway mpg," said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com. "That kind of fuel efficiency – and attendant carbon emissions reduction – is particularly impressive in a pickup offering the great functionality, recreational and work capabilities, and overall driving enjoyment of the Ram 1500. Its distinction as the 2020 Green Truck of the Year™ is well deserved."
