took several top honors during the 2014 Canadian Truck King Challenge. During the multi-day, third party event, light and heavy-duty trucks were tested in a variety of exercises. In both the light-duty and heavy-duty divisions, Ram outshined competitors from Chevrolet, Toyota, Ford, and GMC.
Overall, the 2014 Ram EcoDiesel (http://www.knightdodge.ca/
option/) was named the challenge winner. This vehicle is the first light-duty, full-size pickup to make diesel technology available. In the under $45,000 category, the Ram 1500 with V6 Pentastar power came out on top.
In the over $45,000 category, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel and 5.7L HEMI both had strong finishes, placing first and second respectively. In the heavy-duty segment, the 2014 Ram 2500 HD with Cummins Turbo Diesel power bested the competition in the ¾ ton class.
The 2014 Canadian Truck King Challenge took place in Kawartha Lakes, Ontario and London, Ontario. A panel of judges evaluated each entrant in areas such as features, capability, focus, and consumption. The competition, which has become more thorough throughout the years, is in its seventh year. This year’s tests included 8,000 pounds of towing, off-roading, and 1,800 pounds of heavy payload.
The success of the Ram models in the 2014 Canadian Truck King Challenge is the latest in a long line of accomplishments for this truck series. Ram Trucks have recently earned several prestigious honors, including 2013 North American Truck of the Year, a 2013 Consumers Digest “Best Buy,” and 2013 Motor Trend Truck of the Year.
