The Detroit News - October 22, 2012

Texas Auto Writ­ers Asso­ci­a­tion, has named Chrysler’s Ram 1500 “Truck of Texas”.

The group, which is made up of auto­mo­tive writ­ers and review­ers from Texas, also gave its award for “Lux­ury Pickup Truck of Texas” to the Ram 1500 Laramie Edi­tion.

Mem­bers of the asso­ci­a­tion eval­u­ated the Ram and com­pet­ing mod­els in the group’s annual “Texas Truck Rodeo” and named Ram “Truck Line of Texas”

More than 50 asso­ci­a­tion mem­bers eval­u­ated more than 60 pick­ups, SUVs and crossover vehi­cles in two days of testing.

“Texas is Ram’s biggest mar­ket and we’ve worked relent­lessly to build pow­er­ful trucks with best-in-class fuel econ­omy and capa­bil­ity for our cus­tomers,” said Ram Truck Pres­i­dent, Fred Diaz.
