Two Years Running Ram 1500 is the Motor Trend Truck of the Year

It is something that has never happened before in the history of Motor Trend, but the Ram 1500 full size pickup model has been named the Truck of the Year for the second year in a row! We here at Royal Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Oneonta, NY have known that the new 2014 model was great as well since it arrived here on our lots, but to have this kind of third party recognition is always nice as well. And seriously, how impressive is it that the publication awarded the model twice in a row when they had never done that before even a single time? Let's take a look at what they found so exciting.

Beating out a ton of pickup model entries from other well-known automakers the Ram 1500 impressed judges for a number of reasons as it went through the testing, which involves fuel economy, towing capacity, safety, technology, functionality, and comfort features.

After performing incredibly well in all these, judges noted the facts that the Ram 1500 model provides ample torque and power to go alongside great fuel efficiency (420 pound-feet of torque and 28 mpg highway), and they also highlighted the model's new air suspension system, and the overall quality construction and comfort on the model.
