The Ram pickup landscape has just increased its award hardware with two new awards this week. The 2020 Ram Heavy Duty 2500 and 3500 models are considered apart of the MotorTrend 2020 Truck of the Year award. Ram trucks have now won in back-to-back years this distinction as the Ram 1500 has won this distinction by MotorTrend earlier in 2019. MotorTrend’s testing for their “Of the Year” program included any all-new or upgraded 2020 model year vehicles. The accolades handed down by MotorTrend have a high standing among the entire automotive industry. Ram has earned their standing showcasing their superiority in their class and continues their hold at the pinnacle of the pickup landscape. 

Ram Brand Continues Excellence

Ram has earned the MotorTrend Truck of the Year five times in ten years. When speaking on behalf of the MotorTrend Truck of the Year award being handed out, following wins in 2010, 2013, 2014, 2019 and now 2020, the Ram brand couldn’t be more proud. MotorTrend runs a full course of performance exercises to test and gauge a vehicle. Three courses are utilized to run each different test. The judges do not compare vehicles to other brands, they look at the measurements in terms of MotorTrend’s criteria that the design advancement, efficiency, engineering, safety, performance of the intended function and overall value. The entire report will be added to MotorTrend’s upcoming publication in their January 2020 issue of MotorTrend. That issue will cover their entire comprehensive testing of the Ram brand and their newest pickups. 

“The new Ram Heavy Duty makes a powerful statement about our company and the Ram Truck brand,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “In a brutally competitive truck industry, earning MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year title in consecutive years reaffirms the fact that we have the best light- and heavy-duty trucks on the road today.”

What Makes the Latest Ram Lineup Special

Ram has added its new 3.0-Liter EcoDiese V6 engine to help owners save more on gas spending. At a starting price of $31,895 MSRP (Plus destination fee), the 2020 Ram 1500 has also won Consumer Guide’s 2019 Best Buy for eight years in a row. The available multi-function tailgate, the largest touchscreen (at 12-inches) in the pickup segment, and over 100 new safety and security features have placed the Ram pickup line-up ahead of the crowd. The entire Ram brand has afforded so many drivers with the latest technology and comforts, naturally, those who test these vehicles can see all the perks drivers have experienced since this 2020 lineup debuted. 

“Ram Heavy Duty is MotorTrend’s 2020 Truck of the Year because it delivers unmatched performance, capability, and style to the ultra-competitive truck segment,” said MotorTrend Editor-in-Chief Edward Loh. “Engineered for work and play, Ram 2500 and 3500 reward true truckers with unflappable powertrains, sumptuous, high-tech interiors and a range of thoughtful utility features. Congratulations to Ram for back-to-back Truck of the Year wins.”
