The 2019 Ram 1500 isn’t even in the Hometown Motors showroom yet, and it’s already raking in the awards. This rugged pickup truck was recently awarded Cars.com Best of Show award during the 2018 North American International Auto Show.
Cars.com experts judge new vehicles for the Best of Show award, examining each candidate’s innovation, overall show impact, and execution of claims. According to the automotive website, the 2019 Ram 1500 came out on top because of “its blend of capability, comfort, technology, and efficiency.”
For the 2019 model year, the Ram 1500 is offering a combination of benchmark durability and features. It even has a number of new technologies that have never before been offered in a pickup, including a new Uconnect® 4C infotainment system, which is connected to a massive 12-inch touchscreen. This is rounded off with technology that allows the touchscreen to split so you can display two screens at once, a 360-view camera, and exclusive content from SiriusXM® with 360L.
There are also some new active safety and security systems being offered, including Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Warning, Blind-Spot Monitoring, and Ready Alert Braking.
Along with these new features, the Ram 1500 has also lost some weight—225 pounds, to be precise. Despite its lighter build, it still dishes out 12,750 pounds of towing capacity and 2,300 pounds of payload.
