All-new 2019 Ram 1500 Honored With Autotrader Best New Cars for 2019 Award

AUBURN HILLS, Mich., April 11, 2019 -- Autotrader editors announced today the 2019 Ram 1500 has earned their coveted Best New Cars for 2019 Award. 

"Simply put, the 2019 Ram 1500 is on our list of Best New Cars this year because it's the best full-size truck you can get," said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. "The ride and handling are the best we've ever experienced in a full-size truck, the cab is comfortable and full of useful tech, and yet, the Ram still does all the tough truck stuff everyone expects. We also like Ram's eTorque system that adds useable torque at low speed and functions like a mild hybrid. Sales numbers don't lie, the Ram is on the way up and this 2019 version is the best it's ever been."

The Autotrader Best New Cars Award is intended to benefit a broad set of shoppers. Logging thousands of miles, the Autotrader editorial experts chose the winners of the annual Best New Cars based on a wide-ranging set of criteria, including interior comfort and materials, build quality, available features and ride quality, and each vehicle was agreed upon unanimously by the entire editorial and data team.

"The 2019 Ram 1500 is the benchmark for durability, technology, luxury and efficiency," said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. "This award from Autotrader reflects our team's undivided focus on truck buyers and the features that matter the most to them."
