The 2019 Ram 1500 is the Best Family Truck!

The 2019 Ram 1500 is the Best Family Car!

This honor comes from the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association that gave the overall Best Family Car honor to the 2019 1500 as well as Best Family Truck. 

“The GAAMA Family Car Challenge is unique in that we host the only vehicle competition specific to the needs and desires of today’s families,” said Daryl Killian, GAAMA president and host of The AutoNsider on News & Talk 1380 WAOK, an Entercom Radio Station based in Atlanta. “For the third year in a row, our members were impressed with Ram 1500’s combination of technology, functionality, drivability and family-friendly features. It’s only fitting that the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 won our top overall award given how the 2019 Ram 1500 is loaded with well-thought-out features that are important to families: segment-leading fuel efficiency, impressive ride quality, clever storage solutions and a comprehensive infotainment system. The repeat wins for the Chrysler Pacifica are also impressive. Today’s busy families need a vehicle that can help make their lives easier, and the Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid exceed that promise.”

The members of the GAAMA evaluated all different vehicles to figure out which cars would be awarded by them.  Other vehicles in the FCA family also were recognized, such as the 2018 Chrysler Pacifica.  The big winner is definitely the 2019 Ram 1500.

2016 Ram 3500 Rolls off the Line

2016 Ram 3500 - RamDealerNY Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge

The first 2016 Ram 3500 has rolled off the line at the Saltillo Truck assembly Plant.  In true fashion for this monster of a heavy-duty truck, it is a Mega Cab Laramie Longhorn.

The new 2016 Ram 3500 offers the best towing capacity out there.  It has more torque than any other tuck in its class.  It is a truck center around providing those that need something heavy-duty.

The word first came out about the capability of the 2016 Ram 3500 a few weeks ago in June.  The major advertising point was the massive 900 lb-ft of torque.  That is the most torque ever offered in a mass-production vehicle.  The 3500 accomplishes this with the 2016 Cummins 6.7-liter.  That makes it so the 3500 can tow up to 30,000 pounds.

For the hardcore truck fans out there that want something hardcore, you can start getting excited because the 2016 Ram 3500 is getting out there.

Motor Trend Names the 2013 Ram 1500 Truck of the Year!

Another truck of the year award handed out, another win for Ram.

The award comes from Motor Trend this time. Their ‘Truck of the Year’ award is considered quite the big deal in the industry. Something that truck makers wear with honor and pride and tend to brag about if you ever ask, or don’t if they’re not so modest.

The 2013 Ram 1500 did not fail to impress the editors. They put it through all the extensive tests, from comfort and amenities, to fuel economy and ride evaluation. All the trucks, including the 1500, are compared in six criteria. Those are design advancement, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value, and performance of intended function.

The decision to crown the 1500 was unanimous, said Ed Loh, Editor-in-Chief of Motor Trend. “We had a small but solid field of contenders… but in the end, the choice was clear:
Ram 1500 not only withstood our rigorous testing, it impressed at every step along the way.”

There’s a reason why so many magazines and fans are talking about the new 2013 Ram 1500. Contact us at Bayside Chrysler Jeep Dodge and let us know how badly you want to drive away in one.
