Cars.com has named the Ram 1500 its 2020 Luxury Car of the Year. The editors of Cars.com look for a vehicle that represents ultimate luxury in its class, is exceptionally well-rounded and demonstrates outstanding usability and drivability. This is the first time a truck has won the Luxury Car of the Year award from Cars.com.
“This award validates Ram’s unrelenting efforts to deliver more comfort, refinement, and value to our customers,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “The Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn and Limited are examples of how we deliver the most luxurious pickups in the industry. It is immensely satisfying to have Cars.com recognize the Ram 1500 as Luxury Car of the Year.”
Any model vehicle, regardless of when it was introduced or last updated, is eligible for the award.
“The 2020 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn and Limited trims stand out from the crowd thanks to their stunning interiors with premium wood, leather, metal and chrome finishes, an awe-inspiring multimedia system and outstanding ride quality,” said Jenni Newman, Editor-in-Chief of Cars.com. “The Ram 1500’s top trim levels are stunning and well-deserving of Cars.com’s Luxury Vehicle of the Year award.”
For 2020, an all-new V-6 EcoDiesel joins the Ram 1500 lineup and brings with it best-in-class diesel torque with 480 lb.-ft. and diesel towing capability of 12,560 pounds. The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel also leads all trucks in fuel range. Paired with an available 33-gallon fuel tank, Ram’s driving range exceeds 1,000 miles. The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is available in all models and configurations, including a first-time offering in the Rebel trim.
Ram’s class-leading ride and handling are accomplished via a segment-exclusive link-coil rear suspension system with optional Active-level four-corner air suspension.
As a segment disrupter, the Ram 1500’s Uconnect 4C with a massive 12-inch touchscreen leads the pickup world in technology, featuring split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views and exclusive content from SiriusXM with Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora, which delivers ad-free personalization not found on other entertainment services.
We had a chance to get behind the wheel of both the 2019 Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn and Limited EcoDiesel models last year. With some of the best interiors in the automotive industry, Ram’s half-ton pickups leapfrog most vehicles on the roads of North America to date.
