The truck drivers down in Texas have spoken loud and clear which truck they consider to be the best. For the third time year in a row, the truck of Texas is the Ram 1500.
The members of the Texas Auto Writers Association met at the Texas Truck Rodeo in San Antonio for a singular purpose, besides enjoying the rodeo and trucks of course. That goal was to choose their favorite pickups of the year.
At this year’s 23rd Texas Truck Rodeo, the TAWA gave the win for their top honor to the 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.
What’s even more exciting news is that in the remaining categories, of which there are nine, Ram won the award in all but one. The wholly new and redefined 2014 Chevy Silverado left with nadda.
The Ram 1500 is a magnet for praise and awards and it comes as no surprise that truck drivers in Texas wouldn’t recognize the qualities in the truck. It seems they’ve really taken a liking to the new EcoDiesel engine, proving to the folks at Ram one more time that including a diesel engine in their headline truck was finally a good idea.

When launching a new type of engine, there’s bound to be a lot of concerns. There is all kinds of issues that could pop up. But if the major concern is meeting with the demand, that’s a pretty positive one to have.
That is just what Ram is worried about with the upcoming release of the Eco Diesel engine for the 2014 Ram 1500. Ever since the truck company announced the engine back in June, they’ve been getting swamped with people wanting it.
Dave Sowers, Ram’s Marketing President, explained to Edmunds that they believed there would be a small portion of people interested, not the mass that came out following the announcement. That is making the truck company worry that they won’t be able to have the supply of the Eco Diesel engine keep up with the demand.
The Eco Diesel engine for the 2014 Ram 1500 is the first time a diesel engine has been placed in a light duty pickup. It’s something that fans have been clamoring for, hence the reason why there was so much excitement when Ram finally answered that call. Now they just to be able to find the capability to keep up with what the public wants.
