The awards keep coming for the 2015 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel. Soon after being named a “Consumer Guide” Best Buy, the venerable pickup has just been named the “Esquire” Truck of the Year. Here at Village Motors, we knew from the moment that it hit our new RAM inventory that this diesel truck was something special, but it’s still great to hear other people realizing this and awarding the truck with accolades. 

The win was announced in the December issue of “Esquire,” a famous men’s magazine that focuses on fashion, lifestyle, and vehicles. The magazine’s editors considered all potential truck models in the United States market, and judging them based on efficiency, functionality, versatility, safety, value, and overall fun factor. In the end, the 2015 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel came out on top. According to Bob Hegbloom, CEO of the RAM truck brand, “The RAM 1500 delivers with a winning combination of best-in-class fuel economy and capability, and going forward, RAM will continue to set the pace with the best trucks in their segments.”

Fuel efficiency is the name of the game for the 2015 RAM truck. New Philadelphia and Millersburg residents are always thrilled when they hear that a full-size truck like the RAM 1500 has a diesel engine capable of earning 28 miles per gallon on the highway, which is the best highway-cycle test result for a full-size pickup in the United States. Fuel savings are also helped by in-truck technologies such as an eight-speed automatic transmission, stop-start system, thermal management system, pulse width modulation, and active aerodynamics, including grille shutters and air suspension.
