Ram 1500 Awarded 2020 Pickup Of The Year From Auto123.com


At a special ceremony held in Toronto, the Ram 1500 was declared the 2020 Pickup of the Year by the editors of Auto123.com [1].

Ram 1500 bested two other North American rivals to take the trophy, which was voted on by seven expert automotive critics who contribute to the well-respected bilingual website.

“In the past two weeks alone, Ram brand has been recognized with over half a dozen awards,” said Reid Bigland, president and CEO, FCA Canada. “From back-to-back MotorTrend Truck of the Year titles, to ‘Truck of Texas,’ to today’s Auto123.com honours, the strength of Ram trucks is winning over hard-to-please critics across North America.”

Aforementioned awards aside, Ram 1500 also made the Car and Driver’s 10Best Cars and Trucks list, U.S. News & World named Ram Truck the Best Truck Brand, Green Car Journal named Ram 1500 the 2020 Green Truck of the Year™ and at the Hispanic Motor Press Awards Ram 1500 took top spot in the pickup truck segment.

Here in Canada earlier this month, Ram 1500 was named a repeat winner for best amongst Full-Size Pickup Trucks in the 2020 Le Guide de l’auto/The Car Guide Best Buy Awards, and in October, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) presented Ram truck with an Innovation Award for its game-changing new Blind-spot Monitoring with Rear Cross Path and Trailer Detection system.

For the 2020 Auto123.com awards, the editors chose the best vehicles in 20 categories. Their comments on Ram 1500 included: “A renewed design and an interior worthy of a luxury car in the higher trims; the Ram is the most attractive offering in this segment,” and, “the 1500 features not just a sumptuous interior, but one that’s more useful and packed with next-generation tech its rivals simply can’t match.”
