New 2019 Ram 1500 Winner of Cars.com “Best of Show” Award

January 30th, 2018 by

Winning awards is nothing new for the Ram 1500 or the Ram brand, but it was pretty impressive that the new redesigned 2019 Ram 1500 was named “Best of Show” by Cars.com at the North American International Auto Show, because (as of this post date) it’s only been in the public eye for about a week. With unique style, power and offering roomier conditions while still becoming stronger and raising their capabilities, there is hardly a pickup offering the same amenities as Ram.

Known for dependability, fuel economy and great towing abilities, the light-duty Ram 1500 pickup truck has been a fan favorite for customers from every background. The Ram 1500 is the perfect combination of rugged design with modern features, and the 2019 Ram 1500 the winner earned the award because it made the largest impression on the voting panel. Voters cited the truck’s massive update to technology, and a worth-the-wait display of forward thinking and engineering overall.

The new redesigned Ram 1500 has features that put Ram ahead of the curve thanks to the new entertainment features and advanced tech under the hood of the vehicle. The redesigned Ram 1500 has an all-new eTorque 48-volt mild hybrid system, which has only recently developed in luxury cars. The eTorque mild hybrid system provides a better fuel economy for both V-6 and V-8 engines and it also increases torque, which is an important factor when it comes to towing.

With the 2019 Ram 1500 dropping 225 pounds from the previous edition, a lighter weight was obtained by using advanced materials and engineered to reduce weight while providing durability for up to 12,750 pounds of towing capabilities and 2,300 pounds of payload.

On the technology front, Ram made big changes. The new Ram 1500 is available with a large 12-inch touchscreen and the most up-to-date Uconnect 4 system and both features enhance the vehicle’s entertainment and tech capabilities and provide a 360-degree camera and exclusive content direct from SiriusXM with 360L.

Overall, the changes made weren’t just unique features, they’re game-changing. Improvements were made all-around including to the available RamBox Cargo Management system, which now provides even more secure storage and utility than ever before.

Offering premium levels of comfort, especially in the highest trim available, the Laramie, the new 2019 Ram 1500 also received new popular driver-assistance technologies, including lane-departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, ready alert braking and rear park assistance.

Ram trucks have been able to address both consumers of every kind, from families to business owners,requiring a truck capable of towing and providing reliability, toughness and fuel efficiency. There isn’t a better looking pickup than Ram trucks, but not just according to us. Just look at some of the awards Ram 1500 trucks have been recognized for, like Best ride and handling with exclusive link coil rear and auto-level air suspensions, Best-in-class fuel economy and longest range with exclusive EcoDiesel, providing up to 27 mpg.
