Nice award for the RAM marketers. They didn’t make substantial enough changes to get me back in the market.

Best innovations in my mind go to GM with that 10 speed transmission and that camera that “sees” behind the trailer. That’s pretty cool.


Just be sure you don't do like the commercial, and hold up the competition. That camera showed both the Ford and the Dodge wanting to get by, and the GM holding up traffic. LOL

I wonder who the contenders were? I thought to be a contender the manufacturer had to be introducing significant changes for the year. I'm surprised Ram is even a contender.

Ford didn’t have their 2020 HD truck entered in the competition.

There were for the 2500/3500. The HD truck updates are always a year behind the 1500.

Seems to me that it is a different truck every year. If one was any better than the others there would consistently be repeat winners. Just a way to sell magazines because it creates controversy. The owners of that truck love to brag about it. The owners of the other brands love to complain about it.


I think that they only consider trucks with significant changes. Even if an older truck is still best it is not considered in this competition.

This is concerning for GM. Their new trucks came out after Ram and still lost a lot of market share and gathered few accolades. I noticed that they never stopped promotions during the 5 week strike and had plenty of inventory. GM's story was that they had built up plenty of inventory. If the trucks had been selling well they wouldn't have had the capacity to build enough inventory.

GM is having an emergency update on the new trucks already to better compete with RAM. Of course, they don't really want us to know that the were designed to be behind.

GM redoing new trucks
