Motor Trend's Truck of the Year is the 2014 RAM 1500

We've known for some time that the RAM 1500 is one of the most capable pickup trucks in our Mankato, MN showroom. This year a 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine was added to the lineup, thus boosting the efficiency of the pickup without sacrificing power and performance. Now, we have even more reason's to celebrate the RAM 1500 as it was recently named the Truck of the Year by the experts at Motor Trend.

There were nine trucks in the running for this prestigious title, each of which was tested by judges. Tests included acceleration times with braking, limit handling, towing and payload evaluation and road looping.

The RAM 1500 blew its competitors out of the water with its towing capacity of 9,200 pounds and unmatched fuel economy. The Judges were also impressed with the pickup's style and aesthetics, such as the real wood trim.

"At the end of the day, though, the Ram 1500 quickly rose to the top," says Edward Loh, Editor-in-Chief of Motor Trend. "Not only did it withstand our rigorous testing, it thoroughly impressed our judges with its vast array of standard and optional equipment, and, most notable, its fuel-efficient, segment-exclusive EcoDiesel V-6."1

Also backing up the RAM 1500's stellar reputation for being the best truck out there is that it is the only vehicle to consecutively win this distinction two years in a row throughout the entire history of the award.
