The 2014 RAM 1500 is an exceptional truck. Don’t believe me? Ask Google. Everybody has to give credit to this phenomenal truck. Even ConsumerReports has selected it as the top two Top Picks for Full-Sized pickup trucks with the EcoDiesel V6 topping the charts and the Hemi V8 hot on it’s heels.
In order to be eligible for Consumer Report’s “Top Picks” vehicles have to meet criteria in 3 critical areas: road test, reliability and safety. Consumer Reports road tests vehicles themselves, bases reliability on their huge subscriber base and vehicles must rate well on a government or insurance industry safety test for crash or rollover tests.
Why does the 2014 RAM take the top spots on the list this year? Well, even though many sources have quoted a top member of Consumer Reports having said “These are about the same fuel-economy numbers that we typically see in a mid-sized SUV” regarding the RAM 1500 EcoDiesel I have scoured the internet for even one citation back to him having said this and have not come up with anything to prove it. I wish I could confidently boast that this was said by a third-party in the automotive industry but in lieu of that I CAN tell you that the RAM 1500s are noted for decent fuel economy. However, the main areas that the RAM 1500 dominates the competition are in the smoothness of the ride, the power and torque of the engine and the number one reason these trucks are at the top of the charts over all over competitors is this: PROVEN RELIABILITY. As with all products Chrysler Group has been putting out in recent years these trucks are built to last. It’s for this reason that Consumer Reports boasts that “we like Ram a lot.”
There’s lots to love when it comes to RAM. Power, performance, comfort, reliability and durability come standard. If you haven’t gotten a chance to check them out yet I strongly advise you do so.
