The Motor Trend Truck of the Year Award Goes to 2019 RAM 1500

May 31,2023

It’s an accolade that manufacturers vie for the whole of the auto industry over, and according to a recent Fiat Chrysler America press release, the well-regarded American automobile magazine had only good things to say about our automaker’s full-size light-duty truck.

How did the all-new RAM 1500 take home one of the most prestigious honors a new pickup can hope to receive? There were six criteria to meet, ranging from design advancement and engineering excellence to efficiency and safety, not to mention that one must demonstrate exceptional value and high performance. But the editors and judges at MT didn’t just check out a spec sheet and compare hard figures. They put our 2019 RAM through a grueling battery of tests across three specially-made courses at a professional automotive test center, evaluating almost everything that made it tick. In short, they were “blown away.” The all-new pickup showed off “class-leading capability for work and play,” they asserted, as well as “truly impressive” style, refinement, tech equipment, and comfort.

We at Eagle River Chrysler Ltd. can see what they mean, too. After all, 2019 RAM 1500 makes quite the impact — nearing the top of its class, to be sure. That’s thanks in part to its segment-leading towing and payload support — 12,750 pounds (5,783 kg) and 2,300 pounds (1,043 kg) respectively — as well as to its all-new eTorque mild hybrid system, an option for both its 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 and 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engines, which helps deliver excellent fuel efficiency. The truck’s a competent mobile office, too, with a newly available 12-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen front and center, offering split-screen functionality, 360-degree camera viewing support, and exclusive SiriusXM content.

Factor in optional active safety and driver-assistance systems like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency brakes, and blind-spot monitoring, and it becomes the whole package for the Whitecourt work day. But there’s plenty more to RAM 1500 where what the experts loved came from. Stop by our 3315 Caxton Street showroom and take your favorite trim for a test drive, and we’ll be glad to show you!
