If we’re being completely honest, the 2015 RAM 1500 has always been one of our favorite models here at Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, and while that has a lot to do with the fact that it’s the best-selling vehicle at our facility, we also love it because it’s so versatile. It does a little bit of everything well, including sip gas efficiently.

While it’s true that pickup trucks aren’t always among the industry leaders in terms of efficiency, the 2015 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is officially the most efficient full-size, half-ton pickup truck in the industry. For that and many other reasons, it was recently named the 2015 Green Truck of the Year by the Green Car Journal, and that’s exactly the sort of accolade that a special pickup truck like this one deserves.

“The RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is an incredible success for RAM Truck and part of the brand’s long term strategy to design and engineer the best trucks you can buy with fuel economy and capability top of mind,” said Bob Hegbloom, President and CEO—RAM Truck Brand. “We are thrilled to receive The Green Truck of the Year award, affirming our efficiency leadership in the truck market.”

That leadership is proven every year by the RAM 1500 models finishing among the best-selling vehicles in the U.S., but by adding extraordinary efficiency to the equation, we’re ensuring that even more consumers will consider EcoDiesel RAM trucks in the coming years. It’s a great truck, and for a whole lot more reasons than just fuel economy.
