Ram Named Best Truck Brand by U.S. News

Boasting an impressive combination of powerful capabilities and sophisticated features, the Ram lineup was recently honored as the Best Truck Brand for 2020 by U.S. News and World Report.

Ram trucks lead their segments in a wide range of categories, including the Cummins Turbo Diesel engine’s unbeatable 1000 lb-ft of torque, 35,100-pound towing capacity for the Ram 3500, most spacious and luxurious interior, and best owner loyalty.

In awarding the Ram brand, U.S. News cited its interior luxury, broad appeal, and leadership in innovation.

U.S. News also praised the exclusive use of the coil-spring rear suspension in the Ram 1500, which creates a more comfortable ride than most pickups, as well as its huge touchscreen infotainment system and the fuel-efficient new EcoDiesel engine option.

The magazine also noted that while Ram trucks start off at a higher price than competitors due to their abundant luxury features, a fully-loaded top trim is actually less expensive than the highest trims of competitors.

The Ram brand’s dedication to creating the perfect balance of cabin comfort and class-leading performance is why the Ram 1500 is the most awarded light-duty truck in the country. The 2020 Ram 1500 is an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and the 2019 Ram 1500 was named the Official Truck of Texas and a Consumer Guide Best Buy.

The Best Family Truck of 2019: the Ram 1500

Many people use their pickups for hard work, but trucks can be equally as useful as a trusty family hauler. If you are looking for a new truck for your family, consider the redesigned 2019 Ram 1500. It was recently named the Best Family Truck of 2019 by the editors at Edmunds, and you can test-drive it here at Kevin’s Royal Auto.

“The 2019 Ram 1500 is the benchmark for durability, technology, luxury and efficiency,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “This award from Edmunds, combined with their 2019 Editor’s Choice award, supports our efforts and highlights a rapidly growing interest from customers who use our pickups as family vehicles.”

Before naming their winners for the best family vehicles, Edmunds’ testers put 300 vehicles through hundreds of miles of real-world testing. They gathered data in over 30 categories ranging from technology, comfort, value, and performance.

Edmunds editors were most impressed with the 2019 Ram 1500 for its comfortable, exclusive coil-spring rear suspension, class-leading legroom, reclining rear seats, and available luxury features.

You and your family will also appreciate features like the available 12-inch Uconnect® touchscreen system, 360-degree camera views, class-leading towing capabilities of up to 12,750 pounds with the available V8 engine, and even best-in-class available V8 4×4 combined fuel economy.
