Ram: Four Wheeler’s pickup of the year

Four Wheeler Magazine has named the 2016 Ram 1500 Rebel its 28th Annual Pickup Truck of the Year, beating the Nissan Titan XD PRO-4X, Chevy Colorado Crew Cab Z71, and Toyota Tacoma Double Cab TRD Off-Road.

Seven judges tested the trucks’ comfort and performance in traffic jams, technical trails, and other conditions over five days and 1,000 miles.

Competing pickups had to be new or substantially changed; a two-speed transfer case was required, along with production of at least 1,500 trucks for the US and being on sale by January 15, 2016.

The writeup said, “Everything about the Ram Rebel feels right. From the suspension to the steering to the beautifully matched eight-speed transmission and V-8 engine, the Rebel is one dialed truck. Sure, we would love to see at least one differential locker and could do without the treads on the seats, but it’s hard to find many faults on- or off-road. This is one Rebel with a worthy cause.”

The judges “overwhelmingly” chose the Ram Rebel crew cab both as the Pickup Truck of the Year and as the truck they’d most like to take home.
