MotorTrend has named the Ram 1500 TRX its 2021 Truck of the Year®. As voted on by the editors of the automotive publication, the Ram 1500 TRX’s win is the third in as many years for the brand with the Ram 1500 earning the 2019 title and Ram Heavy Duty taking top honors for 2020.
Since becoming a standalone brand more than a decade ago, Ram Truck has captured MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year title six times: 2010, 2013, 2014, 2019, 2020 and 2021. In the publication’s 71-year history, there has never been a Truck of the Year® winner from the same automaker for three consecutive years.
“The all-new 2021 Ram 1500 TRX sets the benchmark for extreme performance pickup trucks and clearly telegraphs the Ram Truck brand’s leadership in the segment,” said Mike Koval Jr., Head of Ram Brand. “In a brutally competitive truck market, earning MotorTrend’s Truck of the Year title for three consecutive years is not only incredibly humbling, but it reaffirms the fact that we have the best light- and heavy-duty trucks on the road today.”
