Green Car Journal Names Ram 1500 Green Truck Of The Year.

The Ram 1500 has been named the 2020 Green Truck of the Year™ by Green Car Journal. The announcement came at the 51st annual San Antonio Auto & Truck Show in San Antonio, Texas.

Green Car Journal editors consider all potential truck models in the U.S. market, weighing environmental attributes alongside traditional criteria that define what makes a great pickup, such as capability, versatility, safety, value and style. The winner was selected from five finalists by a Green Truck of the Year jury, comprised of automotive experts and Green Car Journal staff.

Environmentally conscious drivers across Long Island will welcome the introduction of the new Ram 1500. A green pickup is good for everyone on Long Island, from Setauket to Medford, from St James to Ronkonkoma.
