Ram trucks have made quite a name for themselves in the highly competitive class of full-size pickups. Receiving multiple awards has bumped up Ram in the conversation of best truck in America.

One of the most sought after awards is from Motor Trend. The 2013 Ram 1500 gladly takes the top honor of being dubbed Truck of the Year by the automotive industry’s bench mark for awards. The Ram 1500 won the award based on the many powertrain options in the light-duty line up and also because of its efficient engine and optional eight-speed transmission.

Ruedas ESPN named the 2013 Ram the Truck of the Year. The leading Spanish-language automotive radio show gave the 1500 its prestigious award of Truck of the Year thanks to it being an attractive vehicle as well as efficient.
