The 2013 Ram 1500 has been named the Truck of Texas, and the Ram brand was named the Truck Line of Texas
Online PR News – 30-October-2012 – Fort Worth, TX – For the second time in three years, Chrysler has proved it is the king of trucks. More than 50 automotive journalists, all of whom are members of the Texas Auto Writers Association, weighed in on this year’s decision and officially named the 2013 Ram 1500 the Truck of Texas, an honorable distinction. In fact, the entire Ram lineup was named the Truck Line of Texas.
This honor is highly sought after by all truck manufacturers because Texas comprises the largest pickup market in the United States. Fred Diaz, CEO of the Ram truck brand, confirmed, “Texas is Ram's biggest market, and we've worked relentlessly to build powerful trucks with best-in-class fuel economy and capability for our customers. The pickup market is fiercely competitive and we are proud the Texas Auto Writers have awarded Ram trucks with these coveted titles."
The victory for the 2013 Ram 1500 is largely due to its “new 3.6-liter V6 that boasts 42 percent more power, improved fuel economy, infotainment upgrades, and available eight-speed automatic transmission and air suspension.” This success means big things for the truck world: “Automotive reporters have reacted extremely favorably to the new 2013 Ram 1500, and our research tells us that resonates with truck buyers,” stated Diaz.
Other victories for the Chrysler brand include best full-sized pickup and best luxury pickup (won by the 2013 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn), as well as the sport utility of Texas (won by the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee).
