Back in their infancy, pickup trucks were fairly simple beasts. There wasn’t too much on board to evaluate and it really came down to the utility factor as to which was the best. Fast forward to the year 2019 and things might’ve just become a little bit more complicated. Not only are pickups fitted with more muscle and providing many more utility features than the past. They’re also competing with high-end luxury cars on in a ton of areas. Some might even argue that they are more luxurious than most cars on the market these days
So when it comes to picking the best, how does someone actually end up doing it? When it comes to advertising, automakers absolutely love to throw around accolades. For example, seeing Motortrend’s “Truck of the Year” is something that we definitely have seen attached to vehicles in an effort to sell more. What does it actually mean, though? Certainly, the brand isn’t just slapping their name on something that fails to be incredibly impressive.
This time, we get the opportunity to ride along with a 2019 Ram 1500. In this one, we get to learn a little bit more about the process that Motortrend uses in order to pick out their truck of the year. As it turns out, the entire endeavor is incredibly in-depth and really goes over these trucks with a fine-tooth comb. From ride quality to utility and even things like available electronics, the process is rather exhaustive. There is so much to consider with these newer trucks and picking out the best means hyper analyzing it all.
After seeing the actual process that a truck has to go through to grab this award, it holds even more weight. These types of overall reviews can make it much easier to head into the otherwise intimidating process of picking out a new truck.
