“This year, competition for Truck of the Year with the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press was very intense and exciting with three very worthy trucks making the final vote,” said Craig Conover, President of RMAP. “After a vote from all the members of RMAP, it was a clear choice for the new Ram 1500 to be awarded Truck of the Year in the Denver region.”
For RMAP’s Truck of the Year award, the vehicle nominating committee considered a number of attributes, including performance, fuel economy, value, and vehicle features, to narrow down the field to three finalists. After voting by the entire RMAP membership was tallied, the 2019 Ram 1500 was voted the winner.
“The 2019 Ram 1500 with eTorque mild hybrid system is the benchmark for efficiency and durability with a high level of technology and luxury unexpected in a pickup truck,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “Recognition from the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press Association further solidifies our efforts in the design, engineering, and manufacturing of the Ram 1500.”
In order to be eligible for the award, vehicles must be in the Rocky Mountain regional press fleet and available for RMAP members to test. RMAP represents automotive journalists from Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Arizona. RMAP’s main goal is to promote information exchange between automakers and journalists and to help consumers make informed decisions about their transportation needs.
