They’re also the most stylish and innovative trucks you can find. We’re not the only ones who think they’re the best trucks out there.

The 2016 RAM truck lineup is “the model to beat,” declared Popular Mechanics editors as published in the May issue, the automaker reports.

“The RAM is the only pickup with a ZF-designed eight-speed automatic transmission, a device so manifestly excellent that [luxury car makers] put the same in their cars, too,” the editors noted. “That transmission can be bolted to a satisfying 305-hp V-6, a beastly HEMI® V-8, or a 3.0-liter diesel, the only small diesel you can get in a full-size truck.”

The magazine’s editors drove many different vehicle models and visited automakers’ factories, spoke to engineers, and debated and reflected upon the state of the auto industry in the present and the potential future to come up with the vehicles that stand out from the crowd.

Said RAM Truck Brand head Mike Manley, “The objective for RAM is to build the best trucks in the market, and earning a spot in Popular Mechanics’ Automotive Excellence Awards is recognition of rapid innovation and exclusive features across RAM’s entire pickup line.”
