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.
