2022 Ram 1500 Named 2022 Full-Size Pickup of the Year by Auto123.com
The Ram truck brand is definitely one of the top contenders of the Stellantis automotive group. In the second quarter of the year, automotive publications are doing their reviews, conducting studies, and putting “Best of” lists and awards together. One publication maybe not well-known on this side of the border is Auto123.com, the number one Canadian source for automotive news, information about new and used cars, exclusive car reviews, auto show coverage, concept cars, etc. Recently, Auto123.com completed their list for their “Vehicle of the Year” annual awards. It was none other than the Ram 1500 that was named the “2022 Full-Size Pickup of the Year” for the fourth year-in-a-row!
“This truck is about being more comfortable and coddled day to day. The interior certainly does its part, while underneath all that pomp, the four-corner coil springs paired with four-corner air suspension do a fantastic job of following through on the interior’s promise and providing a fantastic ride.” – Auto123.com website
Auto123.com has been in the business since 1996. Having become the top bilingual resource centers for Canadians currently in the car-buying process, many consumers check out the reviews and awards lists – the website has 8,717 unique visitors a day. All year, Auto123.com tests different vehicles across the country. Every year, the winners of the Auto123.com awards are announced in the new year, but any potential winners are placed on an initial list of vehicle models available in the year before for the 2022 model year. Confused?
Although the year may be 2022, vehicles that were newly released for the 2022 model year started being released in 2021. Many automakers do this, for some reason, and Auto123.com waits a bit in case any other 2022 models pop up before the new year is reigned in. Simultaneously, the list doesn’t just cover 2022 model year vehicles. It can be any model on the market, even if it’s a few years old. There could be a diamond in the rust, and over several years, the price has dropped in favor of newer models. What lucky consumer wouldn’t want to hear about that?
Once the list is complete, an expert panel made up of veteran contributors, test drivers, and Auto123.com content managers and editors vote on models for each category. With a total of 22 categories this year, there were a lot of vehicles to choose from, but only the best and most noteworthy enter the winner’s circle. Despite the heavy competition, the Ram 1500 came out on top as one of the best-selling models in the industry. Not only that, but the best pickup truck currently available, at least in the full-size pickup segment. Hence the title, “2022 Full-Size Pickup of the Year”.
There is so much to love about the 2022 Ram 1500. No longer just a work truck, Ram has designed the 1500 pickup to be a truck consumers can take on an adventure. With off-road capabilities and all sorts of aftermarket parts from Mopar, the possibilities are near endless. Just check out the Ram 1500 at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show, set up with canoes for a day on the water thanks to the all-new Ram-rack, a fully adjustable system that attaches to the rails in the truck bed for storing oversized cargo. Just one of the many parts Mopar added to their Ram 1500 catalog, with over 300 parts.
Of course, trucks are for hard work, and the Ram 1500 has a towing capacity of 12,750 pounds, and a payload capacity of 2300 pounds. That’s some pretty heavy lifting. Whether looking for adventure or heavy lifting, the 2022 Ram 1500 is the truck to look for. Come find your new Ram 1500 at Aventura Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram.
