It seems pretty obvious that many consumers would prefer to get as much value as possible out of their new car purchases, but what many auto customers don’t realize is that “value” is defined in different ways. To get what represents the most comprehensive meaning of the word, one would do well to turn to the U.S. News and World Report “2015 Best Cars for the Money” awards, which look at which vehicles not only offer the most reasonable sticker prices, but costs of ownership and quality, as well.

Those three factors are difficult to balance. Inexpensive cars aren’t always great cars, and great cars are rarely inexpensive. All vehicles vary widely in terms of ownership costs, which includes fuel and maintenance costs, insurance and even the rate at which the car depreciates in value.

U.S. News looks at every major segment in the auto industry and determines which vehicles juggle all of these things the most expertly. When it comes to full-size pickup trucks, the 2015 RAM 1500 was chosen as the best in its class.

Obviously RAM trucks are known for their smooth ride, classy interiors, powerful engines and versatile cab/bed/trim options, but it’s nice to see a vehicle like the much-ballyhooed RAM 1500 gets its props for an award like this, which looks not only at the quality of the vehicle but the value, as well. Luckily for our customers, the new RAM 1500 has proven to be of high quality and value, not that RAM 1500 owners haven’t known that for years already.
