Ram Series Takes Home MotorWeek Driver's Choice Award

For the past 39 years, MotorWeek has taken the time halfway through its television season to evaluate the latest cars and trucks. During this period, they select the best vehicles based on a buyer’s perspective, considering current purchasing trends, innovations, value, and reliability. For a second year in a row, Ram has taken home the MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Award for the Ram 1500 as well as the Ram 2500 and 3500 series.


“Competent, hardworking pickup trucks that also have all the comfort and amenities you desire are speaking our language, and it all comes down to one name … Ram,” said John Davis, creator and host of MotorWeek. “We picked the Ram 1500 as our Drivers’ Choice Pickup Truck last year, for all those reasons, on top of that the newly added EcoDiesel, and finish it off with the new smooth-riding Ram Heavy Duty with up to 1,000 pounds of torque - so it’s Ram two years in a row. No pickup truck lineup understands us and our wants better than Ram.”


For 2020, Ram introduced an all-new V-6 EcoDiesel to the Ram 1500 lineup offering best-in-class diesel torque with 480 lb.-ft. and a diesel towing capacity of 12,560 pounds. In addition to the incredible power the EcoDiesel packs, it also provides a driving range of over 1,000 miles.


The Ram 1500 also leads the industry in cargo-management storage with the class-exclusive RamBox, which provides lockable storage space on each side of the truck that comes with LED lighting, a power source, and a drainable plug. The Ram 1500 also offers a multifunction tailgate with 60/40 split, swing open or regular fold-down capabilities.


The Ram 1500 wasn’t the only Ram to see upgrades and innovations. The Ram 2500 and 3500 Heavy Duty pickups offer the most comfort and innovative features in their segment with class-leading ride and handling. The Heavy Duty Ram 3500 offers an impressive towing capacity of 35,100 pounds and a payload rating of 7,680 pounds. Paired with the 6.7L High-Output Cummins Turbo Diesel engine, the 3500 produces a class-first 1,000 lb.-ft of torque.


“At Ram, we’re focused solely on building the best trucks and commercial vehicles in the market. This award from MotorWeek acknowledges that effort,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “An unrelenting effort to deliver more comfort, refinement and value to our customers continues to pay off as the awards and sales figures continue to grow. It is immensely satisfying to have MotorWeek recognize the Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500 with the Drivers’ Choice Award.”
