Today, Ram can add another notch to its belt with Trailer Boats Magazine’s newest announcement. After strenuous testing and a thorough real-world evaluation, Trailer Boats Magazine has honored the 2010 Ram 1500 as the Tow Vehicle of the Year, placing it first amongst the industry’s top half-ton pickups.
“This year the editors focused on light-duty pickups,” explained Jim Hendricks, publisher and editorial director of Trailer Boats magazine. “This class has experienced dramatic improvements in features and ride quality over the past few years, with beefed-up tow ratings approaching those traditionally associated with heavy-duty pickups.” Continued Hendricks, “The Ram 1500 with the 5.7L Hemi not only reflects this trend, but its smooth and powerful performance scored consistently high during our examination. The ride, handling and braking of the Ram 1500 – in both towing and non-towing situations – scored highest among the competitors.
So, even at the risk of sounding cornier than that unnecessarily enthusiastic camp counselor we had back in junior high (he used to iron a crease into his shorts before Capture the Flag, we kid you not), get out there and get your tow on!
