The 2019 Ram 1500 Was Just Named the "Truck of Texas"

It was recently announced that the 2019 Ram 1500 pickup had taken home the title of "Truck of Texas," the top honor handed out at this year's Texas Truck Rodeo. The event, which took place at the Longhorn River Ranch west of Austin, TX, was hosted by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA).

The arena may have been pure Texas, but the event was designed to determine the country's most outstanding pickups and SUVs. 69 TAWA members spent two days testing SUVs, pickups, crossovers, and commercial vehicles on- and off-road, with the unexpected addition of wet roads and muddy conditions making things even more interesting. All in all, 57 vehicles were examined before the members cast their votes in a number of categories.

Not only did the 2019 Ram 1500 take home the top title of "Truck of Texas," but it also earned these honors:

  • Ram 1500 — Full-size Pickup Truck
  • 2019 Ram 1500 Longhorn — Luxury Pickup Truck
  • 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel — Off-Road Pickup Truck
  • 2019 Ram 1500 Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen — Best New Technology
  • 2019 Ram 1500 eTorque Mild Hybrid System — Best Powertrain

We cordially invite you to drop by our Ram showroom at 2309 South State Street in Salt Lake City when you have some free time and want to explore the 2019 Ram 1500 in person. We look forward to seeing you and detailing the many attractive qualities this truck holds for Utah drivers!
