Ram 1500 Racks up Second Straight Victory in Motor Trend's Truck of the Year Awards

The trucks have been tested, the figures tallied, and while the losers are likely dragging a bit on their way back home, the winner has been declared. That's right, the Ram 1500 is the Truck of the Year as Far as Motor Trend is concerned. Of course, as far as our Hyannis, MA customers feel, it has been all along. But still, it's nice to get the nod from those well-respected editors.

Moreover, this is actually the second straight year that the vehicle in question came away with the win. For those of you who aren't as locked into the automotive world as we are, that's the first time that any model has won "Truck of the Year" two straight times.

It's clearly a major milestone and our Premier Cape Cod staff is glad to have another winner at our dealership. However, we're still eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 1500 EcoDiesel edition. Not to be overlooked, this trim played a big part in the 1500's top-shelf performance in the contest.

Although official EPA estimates haven't been announced yet, Motor Trend found that the diesel edition turned out 28 mpg on the highway. Given that this class-exclusive V6 engine also provides 420 lb-ft of torque, we can't wait to get behind the wheel and put this bad boy to the test.

To get a better look at the reigning Motor Trend champion, stop into our new Ram showroom at 460 Yarmouth Rd in Hyannis. We can show you around, talk a little shop, and get you out on the road in the truck of the year.
