The Ram 1500 is the Luxury Car of the Year
In what feels like a surprising turn of events for some, Cars.com recently named the Ram 1500 as its 2020 Luxury Car of the Year. Editors from the publication are tasked with choosing a vehicle that embodies top-tier luxury in its respective segment. The winner not only has to be well-rounded in terms of luxury, it also needs to deliver when it comes to usability and drivability. 2020 marks the first time a truck wins top honors from Cars.com — none other than the revamped and overhauled Ram 1500.
“This award validates Ram’s unrelenting efforts to deliver more comfort, refinement and value to our customers. The Ram 1500 Longhorn and Limited are examples of how we deliver the most luxurious pickups in the industry. It is immensely satisfying to have Cars.com recognize the Ram 1500 as Luxury Car of the Year,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand.
“The 2020 Ram 1500 Longhorn and Limited trims stand out from the crowd thanks to their stunning interiors with premium wood, leather, metal and chrome finishes, an awe-inspiring multimedia system and outstanding ride quality. The Ram 1500’s top trim levels are stunning and well deserving of Cars.com’s Luxury Vehicle of the Year award,” said Jenni Neman, Editor-in-Chief of Cars.com.
Ram made very little changes to its 2020 model year Ram 1500 model, but the inclusion of an all-new EcoDiesel V6 engine is one of the biggest factors that’s catching consumers’ eyes. Thanks to its refined power, the EcoDiesel engine boosts the Ram 1500 pickup with a best-in-class 480 lb-ft torque figure as well as unprecedented fuel range. The Ram 1500 exceeds a 1,000-mile driving range when equipped with an optional 33-gallon fuel tank and powered by the EcoDiesel engine. Not only is the EcoDiesel available across all trims and configurations, 2020 marks the first time that it’s also available on the popular Ram Rebel trim.
Ram also leads when it comes to infotainment systems. The Uconnect 4 system can be paired with an optional 12-inch multitask touchscreen display with split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views, and exclusive content from SiriusXM Radio. Not only is the SiriusXM content exclusive to Ram owners, it’s also ad-free and personalized. Additionally, Ram also blows the competition out of the water when it comes to cargo management and cargo space. Its innovative multifunction tailgate opens in various positions — sideways like a kitchen door for example — that help owners manage their cargo more efficiently and without hassle.
When compared to other leading pickups in the segment, the 2020 Ram 1500 offers customers twice the interior storage capacity. Other useful storage features include the multipurpose RamBox cargo management system. Not only is the RamBox system adaptable, it’s also illuminated, weatherproof, lockable and features a convenient 115-volt, 400-watt outlet as well. The RamBox system is available with an optional bed divider and a two-foot bed extender and a cargo rail system as well.
