Back-to-back Champs: MotorTrend Names Ram Heavy Duty 2020 Truck of the Year®
  • Ram Heavy Duty named MotorTrend 2020 Truck of the Year®
  • Award recognizes both Ram 2500 and 3500 models
  • Ram Truck celebrates second consecutive MotorTrend Truck of the Year award after 1500 earned the title last year
  • In 10 years since Ram Truck has become a standalone brand, it has earned the title of MotorTrend Truck of the Year five times


November 19, 2019 , Auburn Hills, Mich.

- MotorTrend has named the Ram Heavy Duty its 2020 Truck of the Year®. As voted on by the editors of the automotive publication, the Ram Heavy Duty’s win is the second in as many years for the brand with the Ram 1500 earning the 2019 Truck of the Year title last year.

Since becoming a standalone brand a decade ago, Ram Truck has captured MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year title five times: 2010, 2013, 2014, 2019 and 2020.

MotorTrend's "Of the Year" award recognizes the best vehicles representing exceptional value, superiority in their classes and impact on the automotive scene. This accolade is one of the most coveted automotive industry awards and represents the pinnacle of an extremely competitive segment.


“The new Ram Heavy Duty makes a powerful statement about our company and the Ram Truck brand,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “In a brutally competitive truck industry, earning MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year title in consecutive years reaffirms the fact that we have the best light- and heavy-duty trucks on the road today.”

MotorTrend’s "Of The Year" program is open to any all-new or substantially upgraded 2020 model-year vehicles. Instead of being compared against one another, contending vehicles are first put through MotorTrend’s full battery of performance tests to evaluate virtually every aspect of each vehicle. All competitors are then evaluated on three separate courses at a professional automotive test center before finalists are selected.

“Ram Heavy Duty is MotorTrend’s 2020 Truck of the Year because it delivers unmatched performance, capability and style to the ultracompetitive truck segment,” said MotorTrend Editor-in-Chief Edward Loh. “Engineered for work and play, Ram 2500 and 3500 reward true truckers with unflappable powertrains, sumptuous, high-tech interiors and a range of thoughtful utility features. Congratulations to Ram for back-to-back Truck of the Year wins.”

After weeks of testing conclude, the judges determine which vehicles will be given “Of the Year” titles. The winners are not chosen from a direct comparison against other finalists, but instead a result of how each contender measured against the award’s six criteria: design advancement, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value and performance of intended function.

A full report on MotorTrend’s comprehensive testing will be featured on MotorTrend.com and in the January 2020 issue of MotorTrend.
