Without a doubt, the RAM brand has the best pickup truck offerings in the market right now. We might seem biased, however, the brand has been racking up awards since the introduction of the fifth-generation 2019 Ram 1500 in January 2018. Since then, the brand has released an updated fourth-generation Ram Heavy Duty lineup which has continued to break sales records, continued and expanding the production of its successful fourth-generation Ram 1500 Classic lineup which continues to be a sales success, as well as added the high-performance 2021 Ram 1500 TRX off-roader to its lineup. Now the RAM brand is getting even more praise with its latest award.
The U.S. News & World Report has named the RAM brand, the Best Truck Brand for 2021. It marks the second consecutive year the RAM has earned the “Best Truck Brand” title. It comes after U.S. News & World Report evaluated 34 brands in the automotive industry. The awards are then handed out to brands for industry-wide excellence in categories such as cars, SUVs, trucks, and luxury vehicles.
The rankings are based on in-depth analysis conducted by U.S. News & World Report of all credible, published reviews, and test drives, as well as reliability and safety data. To determine the award winners, U.S. News Best Cars averaged the overall score of all the given brand’s products in each award class. The brand with the highest overall average score was named the winner in the category. The overall scores come directly from the U.S. News Best Cars rankings, which are based on a combination of safety scores, reliability data, and the consensus of the automotive press.
“RAM wins the Best Truck Brand award on the strength of the Ram 1500, which is one of the few trucks on the market that makes a case for itself as a work vehicle and daily driver. The Ram 1500 features a coil-over suspension that makes the Ram comfortable enough for commuting, but capable enough for serious towing and hauling,” said Jamie Page Deaton, Executive Editor, U.S. News Best Cars. “The RAM interior features a top-notch infotainment system with intuitive controls and a huge touchscreen. The interior of high-end RAM trims feature materials that keep pace with what luxury SUVs offer.”
“This recognition validates Ram Truck’s unrelenting efforts to deliver more value for our customers,” said Mike Koval, Head of RAM Brand, FCA – North America. “It is immensely satisfying to have U.S. News & World recognize Ram Trucks as the Best Truck Brand for a second consecutive year.”
