At Vicksburg Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we are proud to announce that the 2019 RAM 1500 has been named  Truck of the Year” at the North American Car, Utility, and Truck of the Year Awards (NACTOY)! The awards ceremony is considered the “Oscars of the Auto Industry” and it is among the most prestigious and unique in the industry.

The 2019 RAM 1500 stood out among the competition. The winner is chosen by a panel of 54 respected jurors from print, online, radio, and broadcast media across the U.S. and Canada —rather than a single publication. The NACTOY awards vehicles based on excellence in innovation, design, safety, performance, technology, driver satisfaction, and value. The process began in June 2018 by determining vehicle eligibility and included three rounds of voting.

“RAM [brand] continues to lead the way in making a big truck double as a big family pleaser with as much attention paid to interior conveniences and ride comfort as to cargo hauling and towing,” said John Davis, executive producer at MotorWeek.

We couldn’t agree more. The all-new 2019 RAM 1500 sets the benchmark for durability, technology, and capability. It is loaded full of best-in-class stats and available class-exclusive features. The best-in-class V8 engine towing of 12, 750 pounds and class-exclusive Active-Level Four Corner Air Suspension are just two things you won’t find on any other truck. There are significant gains in fuel efficiency with a new eTorque mild hybrid system that adds a 48-volt battery pack to enable quick and seamless start/stop function. The 2019 RAM is also the most luxurious truck in its class, with a cabin packed with premium features and the latest technology systems.
