The Rocky Mountain Automotive Press (RMAP) has named the all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX its 2021 “Truck of the Year”. RMAP is a professional association comprised of 95 automotive media members in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, New Mexico, Arizona, Nebraska, and Kansas. This year marks the 15th annual Rocky Mountain Vehicle of the Year awards event. The goal is to recognize trucks that are all-new or significantly revised for the 2021 model year. In order to be eligible for the award, vehicles must be in the Rocky Mountain regional press fleet and available for RMAP members to test.
“There was some really great competition this year for ‘Truck of the Year’ in the Denver Region,” said RMAP President Craig Conover. “However, the Ram 1500 TRX was the run-away winner among the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press group of automotive journalists.”
For RMAP’s Truck of the Year award, the vehicle nominating committee considered a number of attributes, including performance, value, vehicle features, and how well the vehicle handled and performed on the Rocky Mountain region’s varied and often rugged roads and terrain. The field was narrowed to four finalists before voting, and when the entire RMAP membership’s votes were tallied, the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX was declared the winner.
The win adds another award to the already impressive first model year showing of the Ram 1500 TRX. TRX has also taken home some of the biggest honors in the automotive world this year, winning the MotorTrend Truck of the Year title and FOUR WHEELER Magazine’s “2021 Truck of the Year” titles.
