The awards just keep rolling in for Ram Trucks as it recently was named U.S. News and World Report’s Best Truck Brand for 2021. The nod for Ram Trucks in 2021 makes it the second year in a row that the brand takes home the highest honors. Ram Trucks joined 34 brands in the U.S. News and World Report Best Vehicle Brand, where it takes multiple features and specs into consideration and ranks cars, SUVs, luxury vehicles, trucks, and more according to industry-wide standards and excellence in each category.
“It is immensely satisfying to have U.S. News & World recognize Ram Truck as the Best Truck Brand for a second consecutive year,” said Head of Ram Brand, FCA — North America.
Mike Koval. “This recognition validates Ram Truck’s unrelenting efforts to deliver more value for our customers.”
The rankings conducted by the publication are released after comprehensive and in-depth reviews have been made on each vehicle on the list. After undergoing a series of tests and analysis, the publication comes together to vote on the best of the best. The highest honors list is made up of the highest scoring vehicles in each brand. Then, U.S. News & World takes the highest rated scoring overall brand and crowns them the champion. The lengthy series of testing certifies a quality pick for each award and guarantees it is no easy feat.
Executive Editor at U.S. News Best Cars, Jamie Page Deaton said, “Ram wins the Best Truck Brand award on the strength of the Ram 1500, which is one of the few trucks on the market that makes a case for itself as a work vehicle and daily driver. The Ram 1500 features a coil-over suspension that makes the Ram comfortable enough for commuting but capable enough for serious towing and hauling. The Ram interior features a top-notch infotainment system with intuitive controls and a huge touchscreen. The interior of high-end Ram trims feature materials that keep pace with what luxury SUVs offer.”
