Ram – Back-To-Back MotorTrend Truck of the Year
Ram has done it again. For the second year in a row, Ram has been named the MotorTrend Truck of the Year. This year it was the Ram Heavy Duty’s turn to shine, taking home the award for 2020 a year after the Ram 1500 won.
All of this is coming off the back of another milestone, the Ram’s 10-year anniversary as a solo brand. That’s right, just 10 years ago Ram separated from Dodge to blaze its own path in the industry, and it has truly revolutionized pickup trucks.
With Ram’s advanced safety features, revolutionary technology, and legendary performance, it’s really no surprise. But Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither was the Ram. Let’s take a look back at how the Ram became what it is today.
The First Generation
The first Ram was introduced all the way back in 1981. It got its start as a part of Dodge and was actually based on the design of the previous generation of Dodge pickup trucks. Ram quickly worked to distinguish itself from its previous iterations, introducing features such as an electric fuel injection system. It went on to popularize both the legendary Cummins B Series engine and the iconic 5.7 L Hemi, which you can find in Ram trucks to this day.
Dodge Rams continued to innovate the industry, until in 2009 Ram separated from Dodge to forge its own path. These days Ram has created a truly unique truck, with class-exclusive features such as the RamBox Cargo Management system.
Ram has won award after award, including two back-to-back MotorTrend Truck of the year wins, first for both 2013/2014, and recently for 2019/2020. If you want the best truck on the road, you need a Ram, and we have a Texas-sized selection in Snyder ready and waiting with huge year-end savings.
