Ram 1500 EcoDiesel awarded Best Pick-up in Canada for 2020

As well as the Mazda3 and Kia Telluride, Ram is another Car Nation Canada brand that picked up an award last week. The Automobile Journalists’ Association of Canada (AJAC) awarded the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Best Pick-up in Canada for 2020.

All winners were revealed at the Montreal Auto Show. The finalists will be thinned out until an overall 2020 Canadian Car of the Year and 2020 Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year winner is found. The winners will be announced at the Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto.

Best Pick-up in Canada for 2020

We appreciate the effort and expertise that AJAC puts into these awards but this time, they aren’t telling us anything we didn’t know already. Ram dealers and owners both know that the 1500 truck is a winner in every respect. This is just more evidence that proves it.

The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is a solid performer that delivers the goods. Literally. It looks great, performs exceptionally well, has strong engines and transmissions and a highly configurable cabin. Plus, it actually offers excellent value for money. What’s not to love?

2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is a new model in the range. It joins traditional gas V6 and V8 engines and a mild hybrid to offer a range of options for the truck. The diesel is a relatively new engine so benefits from everything Ram has learned to date.

The design is softer and friendlier than a truck has any right to be. It’s still an imposing vehicle but it is much more approachable than other trucks. It has a friendly front end with rounded lights, a big grille, rounded hood and fenders and badging everywhere. Panel detailing is subtle but powerful and the truck has decent ground clearance and a good-sized truck bed at the back.

Inside, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel continues Ram’s trend of mixing luxury sedan with working truck. You can stick to the basics but you can also enjoy plush leather, a 12 inch touchscreen and all the comforts of home. The Ram has one of the best cabins in its class with lots of space, lots of leather and lots of practical touches no matter how you use it.

The 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel uses a 3.0-litre turbodiesel V6 engine that makes 260 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque. It has a tow rating of 5697kg and the eight speed automatic transmission delivers that power to the rear or all wheels. Diesel is where it’s at for working trucks and this engine delivers peak power low down and throughout the rev range. Just one of the reasons it’s so good!

We already knew the 2020 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was good and now we have more proof. Visit Unique Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 915 Walkers Line, Burlington, ON  L7N 3V8 to take a test drive. We think you’ll agree!
