Car and Driver recently announced their annual 10Best list for the 2020 model year and the Ram 1500 was the only full-size pickup truck to make the list. Previously Car and Driver released a 10 best Car and 10 best Truck/SUV list, but this year Car and Driver staff combined both categories into one, calling it the Car and Driver 10Best list. To be eligible a vehicle must be all-new or heavily refreshed, or, defending a 10 best title from the previous year as in the case of the Ram 1500.
The all-new fifth-generation Ram 1500 was launched in the first half of 2018 as a 2019 model year vehicle. Since then the Ram 1500 has won countless awards and has been helping the Ram brand set sales records month after month. I have been lucky enough to spend time with multiple 2019 Ram 1500s both in 5.7 Hemi and 3.6 Pentastar with eTorque configurations. Each one has been a complete joy to drive, thanks in part to a class-leading on-road ride, luxurious and well thought out interiors, and smooth powertrains. I own a 2016 Ram 1500 Sport and while it has been the best vehicle I’ve ever owned, every time I get behind the wheel of a new Ram 1500 I get the itch for a new truck as the fifth-generation trucks offer many improvements on what was already a great pickup.
The Ram 1500 isn’t just the best truck out there, it’s one of the best vehicles. Its supple ride, rich interior, and fluid power delivery elevate it to a place we never thought possible for a pickup.

Car and Driver notes that the Ram 1500 is as comfortable as it is capable, which is one of the reasons it earned a spot on their 10Best list.
