After first claiming the title of the Motor Trend 2013 Truck
    of the Year, the 2013 Ram 1500 has continued to pile up awards with the newest
    honors coming from the Detroit Free Press and the National Rifle Association.

    The 2013 Ram 1500 might not look vastly different on the
    outside from the 2012 model year pickups aside from the high tech projection
    headlights but a host of new technologies including adjustable air suspension,
    active grille shutters and a new 8-speed automatic transmission have made the
    new half ton Ram the most advanced option on the market today.  With a list of industry firsts including
    those mentioned above in addition to the efficient and powerful pair of engines
    – the 2013 Ram 1500 is the most efficient and most capable half ton truck on
    the market today.

    First off, the National Rifle Association’s official magazine
    – American Hunter – has named the 2013 Ram Outdoorsman its Vehicle of the
    Year.  The Ram 1500 Outdoorsman offers
    all of the same goodies as the rest of the 2013 Ram lineup but the Outdoorsman
    includes the standard Ram Box storage system that allows for secure, dry, and lockable
    storage of firearms in the bedside compartments.  The adjustable air suspension system with a variety
    of settings to make for easier off-roading makes it easier for the modern hunter
    to get into the deep woods in stock form while also offering incredible power
    and fuel economy.

    Next, joining the NRA and Motor Trend, the Detroit Free
    Press announced that the 2013 Ram 1500 is their 2013 Truck of the Year.  The people at the well known Motor City
    newspaper found that the best in class fuel mileage, “workhorse capability” and
    unique technologies made it the best truck on the market today.

    As time goes on and more awards are announced, we can expect
    to see the 2013 Ram 1500 continue to rack up honors.  So far, Motor Trend, the Detroit Free Press
    and the National Rifle Association have recognized the Ram 1500 as the best
    truck on the market today and there is a good chance that more publications
    will feel the same way when it comes time for more 2013 “Of The Year” awards to
    be announced.  Most importantly, the 2013
    Ram 1500 is in the running for the 2013 North American Truck of the Year – an award
    that will be announced next month at the 2013 North American International Auto
    Show in Detroit.
