AUTOMOBILE Magazine has named its 2014 All-Stars, and for the second year in a row, the Ram 1500 has made the prestigious list.
Every year, the magazine chooses 10 vehicle All-Stars, and the list includes a wide range of passenger cars, SUVs, sports cars, trucks, and minivans. AUTOMOBILE Magazine chose the Ram 1500 because it “defies the limitations of a pickup truck, continuing a spirit of innovation that began in the mid-1990s.”
“The list of options and the refine interior rival those of a luxury car,” wrote the AUTOMOBILE Magazine staff. “And a new diesel engine – the only one available on a light-duty pickup – achieves the fuel economy of a mid-size crossover.” The 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has a best-in-class fuel efficiency of 28 mpg.
Michael Jordan, West Coast Editor for AUTOMOBILE Magazine, had more praise for the 2014 Ram 1500, stating, “Chrysler doesn’t get the credit it deserves for what it’s done in the truck segment. First, it reinvented the way trucks look with its big-rig grille. Then it was the first to offer a cabin that held more people and more stuff. Later they did a chassis that would both steer and stop, and now they’ve delivered a great ride with air springs.”
