Auburn Hills, Mich. – Edmunds editors announced today the 2019 Ram 1500 is their pick for the Edmunds Editors’ Choice Award.
“One of the best vehicles we’ve driven in a long time, the new Ram 1500 is a clever mix of old-school brawn, cutting-edge technology and thoughtful engineering,” said Alistair Weaver, Editor-in-chief, Edmunds. “It drives well, tows well, and inside it feels more upmarket than even some luxury cars. It’s a standout vehicle in all aspects and easily grabbed top honors for trucks in 2019.”
Edmunds editors test more than 300 vehicles per year and rate each vehicle on more than 30 criteria across five categories. Vehicles are subjected to this gauntlet to ensure winners represent the gold standard of automotive excellence and worthy of the Editors’ Choice designation.
2019 Ram 1500
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 is a no-compromise truck, leading in luxury, efficiency, capability and innovation. Ram leads the full-size truck segment with significant gains in fuel efficiency through an all-new eTorque mild hybrid system in both V-6 and V-8 configurations. Overall weight for the Ram 1500 has been reduced by 225 pounds. The frame uses advanced materials and engineering to eliminate 100 pounds while increasing stiffness and durability for 12,750 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload. The new Uconnect 4C with a massive 12-inch touchscreen leads the pickup world with technology, featuring split-screen capability, 360-degree camera views and exclusive content from SiriusXM with 360L. Active safety and security systems join the technology onslaught with adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking and blind-spot monitoring.
The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
