RAM 1500 Given Title of 'Best Big Truck' by Consumer Reports

When it comes to finding a versatile, reliable pickup, which model should you choose? Well according to Consumer Reports, the RAM 1500 is a solid choice as it was recently named the "Best Big Truck" in its rankings of full-sized pickups. It also received the "Recommended" rating from the magazine based on its strong performance in crash tests and other tests that evaluated the model.

Further explaining why the RAM 1500 ranks above its competitors, Jake Fisher, director of Consumer Reports Auto Test Center in East Haddam, Conn, explains, "The Ram 1500 is surprisingly luxurious and refined - but still fully capable of doing hard work when needed. Continued interior and powertrain improvements make the Ram a particularly well-rounded choice."1

Looking more closely at its notable powertrain offerings, the RAM 1500 sports a 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 coupled with a new eight-speed transmission. Even with the impressive size and performance of this pickup, the magazine determined it could still achieve a class-leading fuel efficiency rating of 15 miles per gallon combined.

Drivers also get to enjoy an optional UConnect infotainment touch screen, a smooth ride thanks to the truck's coil spring rear suspension, and a quiet and roomy cab that will make every driving adventure more enjoyable. With features like these, it's easy to see why Consumer Reports considers it the best big truck within the competitive pickup segment.
