Here is what it says if you don't have a subscription:

Chrysler's Ram 1500 tops Consumer Reports' pickup ranking - For the first time ever, Chrysler Group LLC's Ram 1500 pickup has topped Consumer Reports' rankings for full-size pickups, a big win for an auto maker that is trying to elevate the image of its truck brand among buyers. The influential product-testing firm said the 2013 Ram 1500 "delivers one of the best rides of any pickup" and has a touch-screen infotainment system that is "one of the best in the business."Consumer Reports also said it is adding the Ram 1500 to its recommended list, based on the reliability of previous versions and the truck's performance in testing. Chrysler recently updated the full-size 1500 pickup for the 2013 model year, giving it a plushier interior, an improved ride and a version that gets top-notch fuel economy with a rating of 25 miles per gallon in highway driving. The truck has already been praised by many other reviewers, and in January was named North American truck of the year by a panel of jurors at the Detroit auto show. The top ranking from Consumer Reports is yet another vote of confidence at a time when Chrysler is trying to gain ground against competitors General Motors Co. and Ford Motor Co. Already, the Ram brand has managed to pick up market share from rivals. Ram sales in the first half of this year were up 23%, according to AutoData Corp. The testing firm's endorsement also comes as Chrysler works to turn around its quality image, which in the past has suffered from poor third-party reviews.The 1500 earned a 78-point score overall on the road test. By comparison, the Toyota Tundra scored 69 and the Ford F-150 received 68 points.
