Truck Trend’s Pickup Truck of the Year

The 2019 and 2020 RAM 1500 have seen big changes from earlier versions, and Motor Trend has taken notice. The truck-focused arm of Motor Trend determined that the RAM 1500 came out ahead of all other pickup trucks. They determined this with several groups of exhaustive tests that didn’t only factor in how much a truck can tow, but the comfort of the cabin, and beauty of the exterior—and every other factor in existence.

According to Truck Trend, “No pickup in the segment better balances capability, efficiency, value, and quality. The Ram 1500 retains its old-school appeal while being refreshingly modern in style and substance. It’s refined and sophisticated without surrendering its dirty-fingernails roots. For that, the Ram is our 2019 Truck of the Year.”
