Default 2014 Motortrend Truck of the year is...

Yeah it's the Ram 1500.

They did a live event at 11:00 EST and the big news for now.. or at least what I caught at the end is they are back to back winners of the Motor Trend truck of the year award. The mileage reported by motor trend is roughly 28MPG during their testing on the highway... fairly impressive.

It's been a long time coming. It's to bad it's taken Chrysler so long to step up to the plate and I hope the trend continues. I've driven nothing but Fords until now and really like my new 2013 RAM Longhorn. There are still a few things I miss about my previous F150 but I'll probably get over it.

I like this part from the article:

"We've been awarding Truck of the Year since 1979 and have never given the award to the same truck two years in a row. The Ram 1500 makes history as the first back-to-back Truck of the Year winner because it offers all the things truck buyers want in a rig: choice, value, great design, and more than enough power and torque. And with the EcoDiesel, you can add efficiency and guts to that list. Ram has made a game-changing decision by bringing diesel to the full-size market. It's a bold move truck lovers have been begging for, which is why the Ram 1500 is our 2014 Truck of the Year."
