The new benchmark for durability, technology, efficiency and convenience in its class, the all-new Ram 1500 has been named the 2019 Full-Size Pickup Trucks Best Buy by Le Guide de l’Auto/The Car Guide.
Now in its 53rd year, Le Guide de l’Auto/The Car Guide is one of Canada’s longest running and most respected automotive media outlets. Its annual Best Buy awards recognize the top vehicles in 27 categories. Winners are chosen by one of the country’s largest and most highly-regarded editorial teams, based on votes determined by six criteria, including fuel economy, reliability, safety, infotainment and driving experience.
“The 2019 Ram 1500 not only won the match,” said Le Guide de l’auto/The Car Guide, “but grabbed The Car Guide’s 2019 Best Buy in the full-size pickup category at the same time.
The Ram distinguished itself by its high level of refinement, its muscular and throaty V8 engine as well as its impeccable tenure during the towing test. In addition, its cockpit in Limited trim, when compared to the plushest versions of its rivals, truly amazed us. And that’s not all: the 2019 Ram 1500 also benefits from an eTorque mild hybrid system that provides reduced fuel consumption for both the 3.6-liter V6 and the 5.7-liter HEMI V8 (optional in the latter).”
“We’ve worked hard to exceed the expectations of truck customers with the all-new Ram 1500,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand, FCA US and President & CEO, FCA Canada, “Our Ram truck includes features like a new high-strength steel frame, class-exclusive 12-inch Uconnect touchscreen and eTorque mild hybrid technology. We’re proud that Le Guide de l’Auto has recognized these game-changing efforts with a coveted Best Buy award.”
