A heavy duty truck has won Motor Trend’s coveted Truck of the Year title -- an award the magazine has rarely given to a heavy duty truck that occupies a small niche of the market. Dodge redesigned the Ram 1500 in 2009, adding a better driving experience and more amenities. For 2010, the heavy-duty Ram 2500 and 3500 models get the same treatment.
explains, “Despite the effects of the Great Recession on personal-use
truck sales, there is still demand for pickups ready to do hard work.
The heavy-duty truck market has gotten smaller, but the guys who buy
those pickups are fiercely loyal to the segment-they need the extreme
capability these hard-working haulers provide.” With
that in mind, they praise the Ram for its 17,500-pound towing capacity,
a passenger cabin they called “the best in its class,” and how easy the
big Ram is to drive even when towing. “What is so impressive about the
heavy-duty Ram is not only how easily it does all the tasks it's built
for, but also how easy it is on the driver,” MT writes.
RAM BRAND. RAM TOUGH. RAM WILL GET THE JOB DONE.
