Crestview Chrysler, one of the leading auto dealerships in Regina, has a history of representing Chrysler as well as Jeep, Dodge, and Ram, and is proud to stand alongside those automakers in the announcement that their popular pickup, the 2013 Ram 1500, has been named “Truck of the Year” by Motor Trend.

On December 13, 2012, the editors of Motor Trend named the latest model of the Ram 1500 their 2013 Truck of the Year. Among the praise they lauded on the vehicle, highlights were given to its versatility above all else, citing a range of engine choices and trim levels that allow drivers to get the vehicle they need. Its towing capacity and air suspension were also significant points of interest for the magazine.

There are six criteria used to evaluate contenders for this coveted prize: design advancement, safety, efficiency, engineering excellence, value, and performance. Eligible vehicles must either be all-new or changed significantly from the previous model.

Despite offering drivers a best-in-class fuel economy while adding in new technology options and features, Ram did not sacrifice capabilities. Carrying first-in-segment tech options such as a fuel-conserving start/stop mechanism, eight-speed automatic transmission, and aerodynamic advancements including its active air suspension and grille shutters sets it apart from the bulk of pickups on the market.

By giving the vehicle a newly-designed frame, new transmission, and new engine options, the engineers at Ram have begun to redefine the idea of what a pickup truck is and can be. These changes led to unmatched capability, performance, and content, which explains pretty simply why the editors at Motor Trend declared the vehicle to be the Truck of the Year for 2013.
