The Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC), has named the 2023 Ram 1500 (DT) its “Best Large Pickup Truck in Canada for 2023.” It marks the third time in four years (2020, 2021, & 2023) and further solidifies it as the most awarded light-duty pickup in the North American market.
“We’re thrilled that Ram 1500 has once again been named the Best Large Pickup Truck in the country as voted on by the expert members of AJAC, reinforcing it as the top choice for Canadian consumers, said Dave Buckingham, President & CEO – Canada, Stellantis North America. “This award validates how Ram continues to redefine what pickup trucks can be as the leader in durability, technology, efficiency, performance, and convenience and continues to push past the competition by delivering the best pickups on the market.”
“The full-size pickup category is immensely popular among Canadians and, therefore, very competitive between manufacturers who built them,” said Michel Crépault, AJAC President. “The fact that members of AJAC chose the Ram 1500 as Best Large Pickup truck in Canada for 2023 says a lot.”
