San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) September 29, 2011
The sales team at Ingram Park Chrysler Jeep and Dodge - the leading Ram dealer in San Antonio, TX - were not surprised that the Ram truck won yet another award recently.
The PickupTrucks.com Best $30,000 Pickup Truck Shootout pitted a Ram 1500 Quad Cab HEMI against similarly priced entries from Ford, Chevrolet, Nissan and Toyota. Overall, there were quite a few great trucks, but Ram came out on top once again.
“This test is an overwhelmingly strong third-party validation of Ram Truck's Value for the money and proof positive that we are meeting the needs and expectations of our truck customers,” said Fred Diaz, Ram Truck Brand President and CEO – Chrysler Group LLC.
“The Ram 1500 Quad Cab is one of our most popular models. Ram Quad Cab gives you four full doors and seating for up to six adults. Equipped with the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8, the Ram 1500 balances 20 mpg fuel economy with the performance and capability of 390 horsepower and 407 pound-feet of torque. Ride comfort is also exceptional, thanks to a Ram 1500’s segment exclusive coil spring rear suspension."
Entries in the contest were judged on towing capacity, performance, handling, styling and fuel economy and judged by the website.
“The Ram was the overall winner because rather than being a standout in any one category, it did well across the board,” said Mark Williams, PickupTrucks.com Editor.
“In a contest so focused on value, the truck that does well in the most overall categories is likely to come out on top. The Ram not only outperformed the other four trucks, but also has the fewest sacrifices or compromises, feature-wise. That’s exactly why it won.
“This shootout was all about best bang for your buck,” added Williams. “With money being a major concern for everyone right now and pickup trucks being the best-selling vehicles in the country, it was important for the focus of this shootout to be about value over anything else.”
