Ram 1500 EcoDiesel wins Canadian Truck King Challenge

Updated Oct 15, 2015

The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has won the Canadian Truck King Challenge, claiming the overall title by grabbing the top spot in the Full-Size Pickup Truck category and out-scoring the 13 other pickups, mid- and full-size vans in the competition.

Claiming the top-spot at Truck King technically marks a back-to-back win for Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, as light-duty pickups last faced off in the 2014 edition of this acclaimed event. In this 2016 Canadian Truck King Challenge, Ram faced-off against the revised Chevrolet Silverado and new Ford F-150.

The 9th-annual Canadian Truck King Challenge was a rigorous, multi-day, third-party event which saw today’s top light-duty pickup trucks and commercial vans tested head-to-head in an apples-to-apples series of exercises. From a base in Kawartha Lakes, Ontario, a newly expanded group of nine expert judges from across Canada put all of the entrants through intensive, real-world truck evaluations with the focus on capability, consumption and features. The testing included 6,000 lbs. of towing; 1,000 lbs. of heavy payload and even off-roading.

Ram pickups are the second-best selling vehicles in the Canadian marketplace and are on pace for a record-setting year, up 9 percent through September 2015.
