Autotrader Chooses 2019 Ram 1500 For ‘Best New Car of 2019’
Ram nabbed a coveted spot on the list, cited for its durability, performance, and luxury.
Autotrader just released their anticipated “12 Best New Cars for 2019” and no surprise, the Ram 1500 took its rightful place on the list. Autotrader‘s editors had nothing but praise for the refreshed pickup.
“Simply put, the 2019 Ram 1500 is on our list of Best New Cars this year because it’s the best full-size truck you can get,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “The ride and handling are the best we’ve ever experienced in a full-size truck, the cab is comfortable and full of useful tech, and yet, the Ram still does all the tough truck stuff everyone expects. We also like Ram’s eTorque system that adds useable torque at low speed and functions like a mild hybrid. Sales numbers don’t lie, the Ram is on the way up and this 2019 version is the best it’s ever been.”
Logging thousands of miles, the Autotrader editorial experts chose the winners of the annual Best New Cars based on a wide-ranging set of criteria, including interior comfort and materials, build quality, available features and ride quality, and each vehicle was agreed upon unanimously by the entire editorial and data team.
One editor wrote that “I can’t say enough good things about this truck. It has to be the most well thought out truck ever created.” Editors praised the new durable tailgate, overall performance, the comfortable and tech-smart interior.
“The 2019 Ram 1500 is the benchmark for durability, technology, luxury and efficiency,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “This award from Autotrader reflects our team’s undivided focus on truck buyers and the features that matter the most to them.”
