Jan. 21, 2013 - PRLog -- Grove Dodge is pleased to announce that the all-new 2013 Ram 1500 truck ( has been awarded the coveted North American Truck / Utility Vehicle of the Year award. Winners were announced earlier this month at the North American International Auto Show. A group of select journalists from both the Unites States and Canada were responsible for reviewing and voting on all entrants. This honor proves why the Ram 1500 is Canada’s longest lasting line of pickup trucks.

In order for a vehicle to be eligible for the award, it must be an all-new model or significantly different from its previous version. Dozens of vehicles were taken into consideration, before the field was narrowed down to eleven cars in one category and ten trucks and utility vehicles in another. The ballot with the list of vehicles was sent out to the forty-nine journalists, who have a total of twenty-five points to use for ranking all of the vehicles. The field is then narrowed down to three models in each category, and the journalists vote a second time to determine the winners.

The Ram 1500 was completely redesigned for the 2013 model year and received updates in almost every area, including a new frame, engine options, and transmission. The interior also received significant upgrades.

This refreshed pickup can be equipped with either an award-winning Pentastar V6 motor or a 5.7L V8 HEMI engine that are both paired with a TorqueFlite 8-speed transmission. The engine and transmission combination help the 1500 achieve a best-in-class economy of 8.8L/100km. In addition to its class-leading fuel economy, it also claims first-in-class status when considering ride, handling, and aerodynamics. The 1500 pickup also features a stop-start engine system, as well as a thermal management system.
The Grove Dodge Chrysler Jeep dealership is located at 200 St. Matthews Ave in Spruce Grove, AB (, and they have the Ram 1500 available now. In addition to this award-winning pickup, they also carry high-quality models from Ram, Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep. Their sales department is open seven days a week to serve Alberta drivers.
