The Ram 1500 is leading the charge to being one of the biggest names in trucks this year. It has already garnered a lot of praise from the critics and numerous awards including being the Truck of Texas. Now the trophy shelf is getting a little bigger as Esquire magazine has named the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel their Truck of the Year.
In order to come to the conclusion about the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, Esquires editors made their way through all the possible truck models available in the US market. They examined each on such traits as value, efficiency, and functionality. Considering that the 1500 EcoDiesel has the best-in-class fuel economy, it doesn’t seem like it was a hard choice to make.
“This is where the truck tide turns,” reads Esquire magazine’s article. “a full-sized American pickup with a just-big-enough diesel V6- the only one of its kind. You get the fuel economy of a small engine, the pull power of a larger one, and the grumble of a working-class diesel.”
“Recognition from Esquire magazine is proof that pickups have found their way into a variety of lifestyles,” said Bob Hegbloom, Ram’s President and CEO. “In such a competitive market, we are thrilled to earn a ‘Truck of the Year’ from Esquire. The Ram 1500 delivers with a winning combination of best-in-class fuel economy and capability and going forward, Ram will continue to set the pace with the best trucks in their segments.”
