2019 Ram 1500 is Named ‘Best Pickup Truck of the Year’
In Cars.com poll, Ram pickup led the segment with its stronger frame, quieter interior and hybrid engine tech.
The trophy train simply doesn’t stop for FCA’s crown jewel pickup. It’s won yet another “Best” award, and the year has only just begun. Cars.com editors announced today the 2019 Ram 1500 is their choice for “Best Pickup Truck of the Year.”
According to Cars.com/PickupTrucks.com editors, “From the beginning, we knew this new Ram 1500 was going to be good, with its stronger frame, higher payload and towing numbers, quieter interior, hybrid engine technology and stunning 12-inch touchscreen display, but we didn’t know how good until we actually got behind the wheel and put it through its paces. There’s plenty of drama here with a cleaner outside look and one of the most luxurious interiors you’ll find in any segment, but we especially like that this is now a stronger and safer cargo hauler delivering one of the best on-road drive experiences around.”
All winning vehicles are 2019 models and each vehicle represented on the list excels in three key criteria: quality, innovation and value.
