Automotive Fleet magazine has named the Ram 1500 truck the 2015 Fleet Truck of the Year.
The announcement marks the second time in three years Ram Truck has earned the U.S. publication’s top honour.
“There was little doubt looking at the ballots, that the Ram 1500 is resonating with our readers— commercial fleet managers of the largest fleets in nation,” said Sherb Brown, vice president and group publisher of Automotive Fleet magazine. “Competition in this segment is really tough, but the Ram 1500 edged out the other brands in this year’s voting by delivering the capabilities fleets need for their day-to-day operations.”
The winner of the Fleet Truck of the Year award is selected by readers of Automotive Fleet magazine. Those readers are comprised of more than 20,000 operators and owners of truck fleets.
“An award from Automotive Fleet magazine is recognition of what we have accomplished as we continue to develop the Ram Commercial brand,” said Bob Hegbloom, Head of Ram Brand, FCA – North America. “Receiving an award based on such an experienced audience truly gives Ram Truck more momentum and confirms we are delivering the features most important to business owners.”
Readers were asked to consider which models best fit their fleet requirements, including application effectiveness, durability, quality, servicing, maintenance and lifecycle costs. Forty different trucks qualified for this year’s Fleet Truck of the Year ballot.
