Detroit Free Press Names Ram 1500 Truck of the Year

The 2013 Ram 1500 was recently named the Truck of the Year by the Detroit Free Press. Mark Phelan, a distinguished automotive journalist who works for the news provider, explained that this model was chosen as the winner because it "combines workhorse capability with fuel efficiency." The Ram gets 25 miles to the gallon, putting it at the front of its class in terms of fuel economy. There are also a number of engine choices, so drivers are able to get the right amount of power that they need to tow heavy loads and handle other big jobs.

"The new Ram 1500 takes a massive step forward in technology and fuel economy, representing the direction the Ram Truck Brand is heading with all its models," said Fred Diaz, president and CEO of Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico for Chrysler Group LLC. "… This award will be well-received by our dealers and customers, reiterating the fact that Ram has the best truck on the market."

Drivers who like the Ram truck don't necessarily have to purchase a new model to get a great pickup, as these vehicles have been produced for many years. This makes it easy to find used vehicles at New Jersey State Auto Auction, which carries a wide selection of makes and models. If car shoppers cannot decide between a Ram and other popular models such as the Ford F-150 or the Toyota Tundra, they can take test drives to make a more informed decision. No matter what they choose, they can drive off the lot with confidence, as each model is CARFAX certified.
