2010 Ram Heavy Duty Pick-up Named Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year

Truck sales in America are not doing very well and each award is very important to car producers. Ram has a reason to celebrate as Motor Trend awarded the 2010 Ram 2500/3500 Heavy Duty pickup "2010 Truck of the Year."

“To have our all-new 2010 Ram Heavy Duty named Truck of the Year by the editors of Motor Trend really defines how great this new Ram Heavy Duty pickup is," said Fred Diaz, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ram Truck Brand, Chrysler Group LLC. "The Motor Trend Truck of the Year Award is like a standing ovation for the Chrysler Group designers, engineers and planners who developed this incredible Ram Heavy Duty Truck."

In order to determine the winner of the Truck of the Year Award, the jury takes into consideration six different criteria: design advancement, engineering excellence, intended function, efficiency, safety and value. Only vehicles which are seriously different from the previous generations are entered in the contest.

"The 2010 Ram Heavy Duty absolutely nailed the award in terms of our criteria, from the attractive exterior styling, to the plush and quiet cabins, to the tough and capable powertrains, especially the impressive Cummins diesel, which meets 50-state emissions standards without needing expensive after-treatment technology," said Angus MacKenzie, Editor-in-Chief, Motor Trend. "It delivers the capability heavy duty truck users demand, with style and refinement they perhaps did not expect."

If you’re thinking about getting one, the 2010 RAM Heavy Duty truck starts at $28,165.
