The definition of “All-Star” is commonly regarded as someone or, in this case, something that excels in performance in relation to its peers. We are therefore honored to report that Automobile Magazine has named the Ram 1500 one of its All-Stars for 2013. This is the third time in the past four years that the editorial staff has selected us for this award, and, as in previous years, the Ram brand is grateful for the recognition and proud to add it to its ever-growing list of honors.
“The Automobile Magazine All-Star award puts the 2013 Ram 1500 on top of other half-ton trucks in the market,” said Reid Bigland, president and CEO – Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. “This prestigious award doesn’t just focus on new trucks but all current-model trucks, and we’re proud to accept the honor.”
For 2013, the new Ram 1500 offers buyers best-in-class 25 MPG fuel efficiency, new technology and new features without sacrificing capability. The Ram 1500 marks a milestone for the Ram brand as this truck delivers several pioneering and fuel-saving systems, to say nothing of the reliable powertrains, including the available 5.7L HEMI® V-8 engine or the award-winning Pentastar® V-6.
Automobile Magazine’s testers put the luxurious Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn through its paces and were favorably impressed, noting the interior especially. “The chocolate brown hide and thick stitching are of European quality, there’s real wood on the dash, and it comes without the tawdry veneer that looks like cheap plastic,” the article states.
The 2013 Ram 1500 features first-in-segment technologies: eight-speed automatic transmission, stop-start system, thermal-management system, pulse-width modulation and active aerodynamics, including grille shutters and active air suspension. The 2013 Ram 1500 is available in nine trim levels, which you can explore by visiting RamTrucks.com or by visiting your closest Ram Trucks dealer.
