The 2021 Ram 1500 continues to make its mark on the pickup segment, this time by racking up another award at the annual autoTRADER.ca awards. The autoTRADER.ca awards are Canada’s most comprehensive awards with a jury of more than 20 automotive journalists from across the country who evaluate hundreds of vehicles according to 12 different criteria.
Named the “Best Full-Size Truck” and “Best Overall Truck” for the second-consecutive year. The Ram 1500 continues to show that no matter how many new offerings coming into the segment, Ram’s fifth-generation half-ton continues to dominant the segment when it comes to value, design, functionality, and technology.
“The fact that our jury has voted the Ram 1500 as the winner in these two categories for two years running is a huge feat, especially as the half-ton truck segment gets increasingly competitive,” said Jodi Lai, editor-in-chief, AutoTRADER.ca. “Our experts are impressed by the sheer variety of powertrains and variants offered by the 1500, along with its bold style, luxurious interior, and clever features that help the truck work so hard for Canadians.
The Ram 1500 wasn’t the only Stellantis vehicle to get praise at this year’s awards. The recently updated 2021 Chrysler Pacifica/Grand Caravan lineup took home top honors in its category as “Best Minivan”. It also marked the second consecutive year, that the Pacifica had taken home the award. The Chrysler Pacifica continues its title as the most-awarded minivan ever but is now joined on the Canadian market with the new 2021 Chrysler Grand Caravan. The Grand Caravan (called Voyager in the United States), replaced the entry-level Pacifica lineup for the 2021 model year.
“The Grand Caravan is a staple on our roads for anyone who needs space to haul a lot of people or stuff,” Lai added. “Even after its recent transformation, our jury of automotive experts continue to be impressed by the practicality and value it offers Canadians. The Pacifica also raises the bar for the minivan segment with its excellent style, family-friendly features, and various powertrain options. We also love that it’s built locally [in Windsor, Ontario, Canada].
Congratulations on another win for both the Ram 1500 and Chrysler minivan teams.
