Ram pickup trucks are immensely popular with pickup truck enthusiasts — and for good reason, as they boast high-level durability and toughness, excellent performance, off-road capabilities, and high towing and payload capacities. This is evidenced by AutoPacific recently naming Ram Trucks as the Highest Satisfaction Popular Brand for its 2019 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.
Criteria for the AutoPacific 2019 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards
FCA is well-represented for the AutoPacific 2019 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards. Along with the Highest Satisfaction Popular Brand for Ram Trucks, the 2019 Ram 1500 earned top honors in the Light Duty Pickup category. The Dodge Challenger earned the top spot in the Sporty Car category for the third consecutive year, while the Chrysler Pacific took the top spot in the Minivan category. Also, the Jeep Grand Cherokee earned the top spot in the Midsize SUV category for the third consecutive year.
In determining the winners of the 2019 Vehicle Satisfaction Awards, AutoPacific measured vehicles for 32 different attributes, ranging from interior design and seating comfort to driving performance. The awards are determined based on responses from more than 50,000 owners of 2019 model-year new cars and light trucks.
2019 Ram 1500
A big reason for the success of Ram Trucks is due to the all-new 2019 Ram 1500, with its impressive power, capabilities, and luxury. It offers three robust engine options, including the 5.7-Liter HEMI V8 engine with eTorque, which doles out 395 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Ram 1500 boasts a best-in-class towing capacity of 12,730 pounds, along with a payload capacity of 2,300 pounds.
