It’s no secret—Alberta is truck country. You see a half-ton of ‘em on the roads in Edmonton, and cruising around the rural highways. We here at Great West Chrysler are proud of our RAM line of trucks, and this year we’ve got one more reason for it; the RAM 1500 has been named the 2019 Motortrend Truck of the Year.
We’d say, “what a surprise!” But we’re not a pack of liars. We know full well we’ve designed the single best light pick-up on the market. It’s just getting the recognition it deserves.
Built for Work
First and foremost, we know that trucks are designed for utility, and the 2019 RAM 1500 is eager to get to work. With three engine options—the weakest of which is still offering 240 horsepower and over 400 lb-ft of towing capacity—the 1500 has power to spare. This workhorse also features expansive cargo space, especially in the bed, so you can load up with whatever you need before you set out.
How about we talk efficiency? When you’re talking about a big V8 engine, you don’t usually think “fuel efficient,” but the 1500’s almighty 5.7L HEMI® VVT V8 engine is the best in its class. This beast will not only tow up to 10,000 lbs, it’s doing it while giving you an unbelievable 17.0L/100km in the city and 12.5L/100km on the highway.
Convenient and comfortable
At the end of the day, though, you don’t just want a truck that gets the job done—you want a truck that looks good doing it. The 2019 RAM 1500 has a rugged, but stylish exterior, and a cab that offers space and comfort after a long day on the job. Throw in some of the latest in infotainment technologies, and state-of-the-art safety and driver assist systems, and this isn’t just the best truck we’ve ever built—as far as we’re concerned it’s the best truck, period.
Why take our word for it? Why take Motortrend’s word for it? Why don’t you swing by Great West Chrysler here on the west-end, and test drive the best light pick-up truck in the world for yourself?
