I feel like I’ve been making a big deal of late of just how much auto writers are loving the 2013 Ram 1500. That’s when I realize that the only reason why is because it’s in the news cycle so much. So many awards and so many positive reviews, it’s difficult to keep up with them all. This time, however, it’s because the Detroit Free Press has named the new truck as their “Truck of the Year.”
Mark Phelan opens his column with “Chrysler could have gotten away with a mere face-lift for the 2013 Ram 1500 pickup. Instead, it provided a glimpse of the pickup of the future, a truck that combines workhorse capability with fuel efficiency.” He continues on to praise the forward thinking innovation and execution of the new truck.
Phelan notes that the Ram 1500 has a “smooth, comfortable ride” as well as, “structure that’s a pickup’s backbone… a nearly all new frame of high strength steel to save weight inside.” The uConnect system also comes out with high marks, out doing the competition with simplicity and user-friendly controls.
Fred Diaz, President and CEO of Ram Truck Brand, was overjoyed to receive news of the 2013 Ram 1500 being named Truck of the Year. “We are honored to have an endorsement from the Detroit Free Press and Mark Phelan. This award will be well-received by our dealers and customers, reiterating the fact that Ram has the best truck on the market.”
