New Ram 1500 Is Back-to-Back Champion

Since 1979 Motor Trend has been handing out the Truck of the Year award to the best vehicle in the segment.  Over the years this award has become one of the most prestigious in the industry, and until now no vehicle had ever taken the title two straight years.  The truck to make this historical back-to-back run is one we have right here in the Viva Dodge Chrysler Jeep showroom, the 2014 Ram 1500.

The latest model of the 1500 joins last year's model at the top of the segment, and does this thanks to the new incredible EcoDiesel engine from Ram.

It is truly an honor to once again receive this illustrious recognition, and with the turbodiesel V-6 engine powering the 1500, it was able to dominate all six of Motor Trends Truck of the Year criteria.

This EcoDiesel 3.0-liter engine was a brand new technological advancement for the half-ton tuck segment, and provided 240 horsepower with a huge 420 lb-ft of torque.  With these numbers the 1500 was highlighted by incredible towing numbers, while maintaining some exceptional fuel efficiency for a vehicle of its power and size.

A smooth ride and the usual comprehensive features that Ram has traditionally provided complimented the new engine, and completed the picture of a superb truck.  As Motor Trend put it, the new 1500 has "Awesome torque low down," with a "Superb eight-speed automatic - it just surfs the torque wave."1
