Ram wins again!

 The award-winning 2015 Ram 1500 has just chalked up more hard-earned bragging rights. Motor Trend has named the Ram 1500 the winner of its 2015 half-ton pickup truck shootout. So what does it take to bring home the honor?

It’s no walk in the park! During a grueling 260-mile trek through eastern California and western Arizona, the 2015 Chevy Silverado, 2015 Ford F150- aluminum body! - and the 2015 Ram 1500 were measured on the following:

• Standard testing... (without load): 0-60 mph and ¼ mile acceleration, 60-0 braking, and maximum lateral grip
• Limit handling (without load): closed-course cornering, braking and acceleration
• Tow testing with 7,000 pound trailer
• Payload testing with 1,000 pounds
• Fuel economy testing

The winner is chosen in a direct comparison of the results and drive impressions of each truck. The Motor Trend judges were particularly impressed with the 28 mpg delivered by the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel’s V-6 engine and eight-speed TorqueFlite transmission.

Summing up this ‘battle of the big guys,’ Motor Trend Associate Editor Scott Evans said, “Our comparison of the latest half-ton pickup trucks was as exhaustive as it was comprehensive, because this segment is so important and so competitive.”

For Ram Truck President and CEO Bob Hegbloom, the ‘win’ validates the brand’s commitment to its’ customers. “This is a strong third-party testimonial of Ram’s place in the market and contributes to the justification of long hours and hard work to deliver the best trucks available.”
