The All-New 2019 Ram 1500 has been named the Pickup of the Year via Auto123.com. This is the latest accolade named to the premiere Ram truck at a ceremony held in Toronto, Canada. Auto123.com remains one of Canada’s top online automotive outlets. The new Ram won 19 vehicle categories that were hand-picked by an expert panel of automotive journalists from across Canada. They bestowed the award and helped cement what fans of Ram already know.

“The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is the benchmark for durability, technology, efficiency and convenience in its segment. The Ram team and our customers are thrilled when experts like the Auto123 editors recognize Ram 1500’s strengths above its rivals,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, FCA US LLC and President and CEO, FCA Canada.

The Fantastic Interior Everyone Should Experience

Part of the reason for the award bestowed on this All-New Ram 1500 is the incredible infotainment system that has been revamped for an award-winning experience – literally. The incredible 12.0-inch touchscreen, which is optional, is the focal-point for the interior. The massive screen is included standard with the Laramie Longhorn trim. The Laramie Longhorn trim also provides soft fine leather seating with heated seats. Luxurious open-pore wood accents that surround the driver with a unique and classy feel for drivers. Looking for more reasons to love the interior? High tech capabilities provide the driver with a 360-degree camera and exclusive content direct from SiriusXM with 360L. The available RamBox Cargo Management system provides even more secure storage and utility which is perfect for business owners or those that want a safe and secure place to hold more cargo.

The eTorque System Adds Better Fuel Economy

With a redesigned interior, a lighter body (225 pounds lighter thanks to a new steel and aluminum frame) and the eTorque system to promote better fuel economy, owners gain a steal with all the perks offered in this top-level pickup. This change, along with making more active air dams and redesigned upper grille shutters, improves the aerodynamics at highway speeds. Just how great is the gas-saving Ram 1500? There’s an impressive EPA rating of 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway highway with the trusted 3.6-Liter Pentastar V6 engine that’s paired with the 48-volt mild-hybrid system. For those that want the impressive HEMI V8 power, owners will experience 17 city and 22 highway mpg and the ability to haul up to 6,280 pounds. New technology added makes the 2019 Ram 1500 the most fuel-efficient pickup on the road and better than ever.
