The American car and truck magazine just named our automaker's latest full-size pickup "Truck of the Year," one of the most sought-after laurels in the industry.

What did it take for the all-new RAM 1500 to make the grade for the pros at MT? The gauntlet began with six criteria. The light-duty flagship had to demonstrate design advancement, engineering excellence, exceptional efficiency, a standout commitment to safety, enduring value, and most of all, the powerful performance we've come to expect from a new RAM truck.

But these weren't met, and moreover, no decision was made, over spec sheets and via walkarounds. The editors and judges put the pickup through a whole gamut of tests, evaluating nearly every one of its aspects. The "how:" Motor Trend oversaw its abilities across three different courses at an automotive test center specially designed for the purpose. There's no better way to put the result than that in a recent press release: the truck research, rankings, and comparison experts were "blown away." 2019 RAM 1500, they asserted, demonstrated "class-leading capability for work and play" and refinement, technology, style, and comfort no less than "truly impressive."

Our own enthusiasts here at Dodge City Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram agree. After all, for one, its capabilities -- 12,750 pounds or 5,783 kg of max towing capability, 2,300 pounds or 1,043 kg of max payload support -- are at the top of the class. Plus, we know where that leading fuel economy comes from -- the all-new eTorque mild hybrid system, available in both 3.6-liter Pentastar® V6 and 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 engine builds. Consider its available active safety and security systems, like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring, as well as the mobile office possibilities afforded by a newly available, split-screen-capable 12-inch Uconnect 4C touchscreen, and we think you'll agree with the experts: RAM 1500 is the whole package.

You can check out the entire lineup for yourself right here at 2200 Eighth Street East in Saskatoon. Call us or stop by the showroom to schedule a test drive, and we'll introduce you to all that earned the accolade and more!
