2019 Ram 1500 Named "Truck of Texas"

The 2019 Ram 1500 pickup took top honors at this year's Texas Truck Rodeo that was held at the Longhorn River Ranch west of Austin. The event, which was hosted by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA), honors outstanding pickups and SUVs in an arena that's uniquely Texan.

This year's Texas Truck Rodeo challenged all 57 pickups, SUVs, crossovers, and commercial vehicles that entered the competition, thanks to muddy conditions and wet roads. 69 TAWA members attended the event, assessing vehicles over two days of driving both on- and off-road and then casting their votes in a variety of categories.

In addition to earning the honor of "Truck of Texas," the Ram 1500 also took home these awards:

  • Full-size Pickup Truck
  • Luxury Pickup Truck, for the 2019 Ram 1500 Longhorn model
  • Off-Road Pickup Truck, for the 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel model
  • Best Powertrain, for the new eTorque Mild Hybrid System
  • Best New Technology, for the 2019 Ram 1500 Uconnect 12-inch touchscreen

In a press release, Michael Marrs, President of TAWA, was quoted as saying, "The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 stole the hearts of our members this year, and has earned our highest honor as the 2019 Truck of Texas. It’s not only capable, but it is comfortable, and the attention to detail is unlike anything in the truck market. It’s a home run for the Ram brand that scored the Truck of Texas trophy."
