2019 Ram 1500 Editors’ Choice Award from Edmunds
The All-New Ram 1500 is one of the best trucks of the year. Edmunds, the highly regarded online car shopper’s guide, has chosen the Ram 1500 as its pick for the Editors’ Choice Award.
2019 Ram 1500 Updates
The new Ram takes its place at the top with improved design, more efficient power, and more luxury than any other full-size pickup. Engineering in the frame dropped 100 pounds of weight while still increasing strength and durability by using new materials. The new available 5.7L HEMI® V8 engine with eTorque Mild Hybrid System provides better fuel economy with the same amount of power as a regular V8. The eTorque Mild Hybrid System replaces the alternator with a 48-volt battery-powered, belt-driven motor generator that allows up to 2,300 pounds in payload and best-in-class maximum towing capacity of 12,750 pounds.
Sporting 6 trims, the Ram 1500 also brings a sense of luxury that most trucks can’t begin to achieve. The interior of the Limited trim features real wood and genuine leather. And technology abounds with a giant 12-inch dashboard touchscreen that’s capable of split screen and 360-degree camera views.
With over 100 standard and available safety features, including adaptive cruise control and blind spot monitoring, the new Ram 1500 earns its place at the top.
Alistair Weaver, Editor-in-chief at Edmunds, said the Ram 1500 was, “a clever mix of old-school brawn, cutting-edge technology and thoughtful engineering. It drives well, tows well, and inside it feels more upmarket than even some luxury cars.”
Other notable awards were the 2019 TruckTrend Pick-Up of the Year, 2019 MotorTrend Truck of the Year, Consumer Guide Best Buy eight years in a row, and Best in Show in the 2018 Detroit Auto Show.
Over the last 30 years, Ram has made its name in durability by holding the highest percentage of pickups still on the road and the highest owner loyalty of any half-ton pickup.
