Ram 1500 named Truck of the Year, again

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Not to, as they say, flog a dead horse, but it has happened again. The new 2013 Ram 1500 has been named the Truck of the Year.

This time it was AOL Autos placing the Ram 1500 on top of all other trucks. AOL editors had a chance to test drive and report on every new truck, car and SUV, to provide an unbiased insight into the best wheels on the market. 

Potential car buyers looking to purchase the best vehicles on the market should protect them with the leading car mats on the market. HuskyLiners® custom fit floor mats will protect a car's interior from potentially damaging spills.

David Kiley, chief automotive editor of AOL Autos, said their job of separating "the wheat from the chaff" has never been more difficult as the quality of new trucks has never been better, but when all was said and done, the Ram 1500 was the "hands down" leader in trucks.

The Ram 1500 totes best-in-class fuel economy with 25 miles to the gallon, improved technology and features, without sacrificing on performance. The automaker places fuel efficiency at the top of innovations in the truck by including engine options of the 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 or the Pentastar V-6, providing consumers with the best in powertrains.

"We're extremely pleased that AOL Autos, a well-known source for automotive information, has deemed the 2013 Ram 1500 as their choice for Truck of the Year," said Fred Diaz, president and CEO Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group. "A recommendation from AOL is fantastic news for our dealers and customers, and further recognizes Ram Truck for delivering uncompromising high quality, capability and technology."

Both Motor Trend and the Detroit Free Press announced last month that the 2013 Ram 1500 is the Truck of the Year.

"We had a small but solid field of contenders for Motor Trend's Truck of the Year," said Edward Loh, editor-in-chief of Motor Trend. "But in the end, the choice was clear: Ram 1500 not only withstood our rigorous testing, it impressed at every step along the way. Our judges were won over by the performance of Ram 1500's broad array of standard and optional equipment."

Both Motor Trend and the Detroit Free Press applauded the 1500 for its technological and interior advancements, as well as its fuel efficiency.
