TAMPA, FL, June 19, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Dodge Jeep dealership, Ferman, is excited to note that Dodge's esteemed Ram series has proven unbeatable once again. The new revised 2014 Ram 1500 has certainly earned its stripes as it walked away this year claiming Motor Trend's coveted Truck of the Year award.

Dodge once again ignited the wow factor as it did in 2013 with the Ram's eight-speed automatic transmission and air ride suspension (1).

Leaving Tradition in the Dust

While it's a major player in the lineup of mid-grade trucks, few people expected Dodge to win first place two years in a row, especially since Motor Trend's award is only granted to all-new models or those that feature major year-to-year upgrades. To much surprise, the Ram 1500 half-ton diesel did exactly that, changing a status quo that has been in place since the turn of the millennium (1).

Ram has altered the trucking landscape with its 2014 EcoDiesel, which features an impressive 240-horsepower 3.0L V-6 and 420 pound-feet of torque. One might expect a noisy ride with all that under-the-hood muscle, but the main advantage of modern diesel fuels are their slower, quieter, and more efficient burn rates (1).

With all that power, the new Ram is still capable of producing 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, numbers that rival competing models like the Laramie Longhorn and Sierra Denali (1). More impressive than the 2014 1500's beautiful body and interior, is the fact that Motor Trend has never once given the same truck the award in the 35-year-history of its legendary award.
