Ram 1500 EcoDiesel wins 2016 Canadian Truck King Challenge

Ram 1500 EcoDiesel wins 2016 Canadian Truck King Challenge

The Ram 1500 EcoDiesel successfully defended its 2015 title
to be crowned winner of the 2016 Canadian Truck King Challenge. It beat off
challengers from Ford and GM for the second year running to win the
competition, cementing its place as a real go-to truck.

The Canadian
Truck King Challenge
is designed to test trucks in real life situations so
you can truly assess its capabilities. That includes real gas mileage, real
towing and hauling and real performance. Trucks have to haul 1,000 pounds in
the truck bed and tow 6,000 pounds over a set course.

As a note of interest, the 2016 Ford Transit won the
full-size van part of the challenge. Vans have to take 1,000 pounds in the back
through city streets to simulate living with them day to day.

All vehicles are fitted with a data logger to assess
performance and in particular, gas mileage. Currently the data is being
analysed and will be provided as soon as it is ready.

2016 Ram 1500

The half-ton truck market is a hotly contested one. The
competition is good and the demands of customers is great. The fact that the 2016
Ram 1500 manages to shine in all this competition shows you just how good it

The exterior is all about work yet has made time and space
for a bit of style too. It has a presence, but a nice one. The front end is
much nicer this time round, with less of the in your face grille and badge. The
new look is more subtle, yet still means business. The big hood, side panels
and rear end are all simple and tidy, offering a streamlined profile.

Inside is where the true quality lies and where the 2016 Ram
1500 is better than the rest. The interior is a quality piece of engineering
with nice materials, a large screen, technology in abundance and very intuitive

Under that hood is either a 3.6-litre V6 that produces 305
hp and 269 lb-ft of torque, a 5.7-litre HEMI V8 that produces 395 hp and 407
lb-ft of torque or the 3.0-litre diesel V6 that produces 240 hp and 420 lb-ft
of torque. All can use an eight speed automatic transmission to send that power
to the rear or all wheels.

With a range of trim levels and hundreds of options, it's
possible to configure your 2016 Ram 1500 to almost any specification you can
imagine. Coupled with very capable engines and the nicest interior in the truck
market, you have a compelling reason to choose the Ram over the competition.
