Ram 1500 Receives Pick Up Of The Year Award | Spirit Lake, IA

The editors at Four Wheeler magazine announced the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX as the 2021 Pickup Truck of the Year. This accolade recognizes the off-road truck’s powerful capability and durability.

The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX is known as the “quickest, fastest, and most powerful mass-produced truck in the world,” and with good reason. The editors at Four Wheeler tested the Ram 1500 TRX over various terrains, including sand, snow, and even a loose-dirt hill climb, for 1,000 miles. Even night drives were conducted to test the off-road truck’s lighting.

Four Wheeler Editor Ken Brubaker called the Ram 1500 TRX the total package, noting its suspension and muscular stance. Sean P. Holman, Content Director of Truck & Off-Road Group commended the Ram 1500 TRX for its impressive towing capability and luxurious interior. With a supercharged HEMI V8 engine, the Ram 1500 TRX generates 702 horsepower and can reach 60 miles per hour in 4.5 seconds. The truck effortlessly traverses challenging terrains, especially since it has 11.8 inches of ground clearance.

Now in its 32nd year, the 2021 Pickup Truck of the Year award is chosen by staff members at Four Wheeler magazine, journalists at 4-Wheel & Off-Road, and JP Magazine.

Ram 1500 Awards Honor the Truck’s Popularity

Ram 1500 Awards | Motor Inn | Algona, IA

Ram took home big honors at the 2019 AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Awards, receiving a duo of wins for the brand – Top Popular Brand and Top Overall Brand. Equally impressive, the brand’s popular, powerful Ram 1500 received top honors in the full-size pickup category.

The AutoPacific Ideal Vehicle Awards hands out honors to automakers and vehicle models based solely on customer satisfaction via surveys taken by new car and truck owners. According to AutoPacific president George Patterson, “the Ideal Vehicle Awards recognize vehicles that best meet their owner’s expectations and desires … these vehicles are ‘just right’ for their owners.”

Also impressive, the Ram 1500 has made headlines for being the first full-size pickup to receive recognition as being an IIHS Top Safety Pick+ when properly equipped with driver assist technologies and adaptive LED projector headlamps with high-beam assist.

The Ram 1500 is designed to handle tough work. With a best-in-class towing capacity of 12, 750 pounds when properly equipped, V8 HEMI powered Ram pickup can handle nearly anything you can put in front of — or behind — it.

The many Ram 1500 awards are a testament to its craftsmanship. To see what makes the Ram 1500 so capable, take it for a test drive at Motor Inn of Spirit Lake.
