Ram 1500 Motor Trend Truck of Year Victory Lap Videos

You may know by now that the 2014 Ram 1500 is Motor Trend’s Truck of Year for the second year in a row. Thanks to the innovation behind the EcoDiesel engine, Motor Trend found the Ram 1500 to be worthy of the first ever back-to-back Truck of the Year title. You’d probably agree that 28 miles per gallon on the highway is an award-winning feat for a full-size lightweight pickup.

So, to celebrate, we took the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel across the country to meet the people (you) that made this possible. We visited Ram Truck owners from Michigan to California, visiting their homes and workplaces and listening to their stories about their trucks. The folks we visited on our trip proved to us that what people say is true: Ram Trucks know how to work hard and play hard.

Now the time has come for you all to hop in and ride along with us. We’ve got a string of videos highlighting all our stops and conversations, from interviews with owners and fans to pullovers at landmarks and monuments. Enjoy this great country with us as we head south to Texas and west toward the Pacific. This is one road trip you don’t want to miss.

Real People, Real Trucks – “It’s Never Let Me Down”

RamZone Chip

Here’s a story from Real People, Real Trucks that Ram Truck owners will surely be able to identify with. Chip Harris has put some serious miles on his Ram Commercial vehicle and has only great things to say about it:

2003 Ram Van, with a 360 engine and 316,551 miles on it. What can I say? Still running and looks great … I could use a new seat though! I haven’t even had to do any major engine work on it, not even the valve cover gaskets! Only the tranny rebuilt at 287k mi. I’ve used this van daily selling detailing products, and it’s never let me down. Also, many thanks to my long-time tech Terry Harwood at Doan Dodge in Rochester, NY. Although, I have a feeling we’re nearing the end, and it’s killing me! I’ve always been a Dodge guy, so it will be going to part-time status shortly, and a new [Ram] 3500 ProMaster is soon to be in the picture.

We love seeing Ram drivers get great value and satisfaction out of their vehicles. Thanks for being a loyal Ram Fan, Chip. We hope you’ll be just as pleased with your new Ram 3500 ProMaster. Keep us updated on how it goes, and good luck with your business. 

What do you think of Chip’s van? Let us know in the comments below, and feel free to share your Ram stories with us and let us know how you’ve been using your Ram Truck.

Some jobs never sleep. Even those cold-weather favorites don’t get the off-season you might expect. When your business is tasked with keeping the roads clear and the people safe, it’s important to stay up-to-date on the latest.

Ram Commercial recently joined Chrysler Commercial Vehicles at the Snow & Ice Management Association’s (SIMA) annual Snow & Ice Symposium in Columbus, Ohio, to help plow the road toward next winter. Ram Trucks made a strong presence as a durable, reliable truck fit for icy roads and snowplow upfits.  Professionals came from all over the area to prep for their trade, and the Chrysler for Work booth had some competitions ready for them to test their own strength. Here are a couple photos from the event:
