Ram named an All-Star for second consecutive year

Every year, the editorial staff of Automobile magazine selects its ten favorite passenger vehicles and names them All-Stars. For the second year in a row, the Ram 1500 pickup is one of their selections. It’s also the only truck on the list.

This makes four times time the Ram has been named an All-Star in the past five years.

According to the editors, “…The Ram 1500 defies the limitations of a pickup truck, continuing a spirit of innovation that began in the mid-1990s, when Chrysler introduced the big-rig grille and reinvented the way pickup trucks look. Now the Ram has the best chassis in the business, with a coil-sprung rear suspension that offers a settled ride even with an empty bed. The list of options and the refined interior rival those of a luxury car. And a new diesel engine—the only one available on a light-duty pickup—achieves the fuel economy of a mid-size crossover….”

This year, for the first time, the magazine’s staff took all 10 winners on a great American road trip, from Automobile’s editorial offices in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to New Orleans, Louisiana. Read about the trip online at automobilemag.com.

“The Automobile Magazine All-Star award doesn’t just focus on all-new trucks, but all current model trucks, and the results place our Ram 1500 at the top…,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand.
