Edmunds Names Ram 1500 Best Family Truck.

Most families on Long Island may not think of a Ram 1500 truck as a family vehicle. But once Mom or Dad take a Ram 1500 for a test drive it all starts to make sense. In the search for best family vehicles, Edmunds' experts tested 300 vehicles per year using a 115-mile real-world test loop of city streets, freeways and winding canyons. The data gathered results in their ratings, which are based on 30-plus scores covering performance, comfort, interior, technology, utility and value. And like real life families in Terryville, Centereach, Patchogue, and Bellport, they are amazed at the comfort, design, style and performance of the Ram 1500 "family truck".

“The 2019 Ram 1500 is the benchmark for durability, technology, luxury and efficiency,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “This award from Edmunds, combined with their 2019 Editor’s Choice award, supports our efforts and highlights a rapidly growing interest from customers who use our pickups as family vehicles.”
 
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is a no-compromise truck, leading in luxury, efficiency, capability and innovation. Ram leads the full-size truck segment with significant gains in fuel efficiency through an all-new eTorque mild hybrid system in both V-6 and V-8 configurations. Overall weight for the Ram 1500 has been reduced by 225 pounds. The frame uses advanced materials and engineering to eliminate 100 pounds while increasing stiffness and durability for 12,750 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload. The new Uconnect 4C with a massive 12-inch touchscreen leads the pickup world with technology, featuring split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views and exclusive content from SiriusXM with 360L. Active safety and security systems join the technology onslaught with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring.

“A truck as a family car really does make sense when you drive the Ram 1500 – especially if your family is outdoorsy and has lots of toys," said Alistair Weaver, editor-in-chief at Edmunds. “With reclining rear seats, class-leading legroom and an exclusive coil-spring rear suspension, the Ram 1500 outclasses many traditional SUVs in comfort and luxury.”

With an extensive lineup of trucks, including ProMaster and ProMaster City vans, the Ram brand builds trucks that get the hard work done and families where they need to go. From the no-compromise Ram 1500 that defines the future of pickup trucks with innovative design, the highest quality materials and class-exclusive technology, to the Ram Heavy Duty which combines the ability to out-power, out-tow and out-haul every single competitor with the segment’s most comfortable ride and handling, Ram is committed to product leadership.
