2015 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel Earns Green Truck of the Year Award

Even as gas prices continue to drop this autumn, fuel efficiency is still a major concern for the overwhelming majority of consumers. Even those who don’t care about what a gas guzzler costs in terms of dollars and cents should at least share some measure of concern about how poor fuel economy affects the environment.

Happily, the 2015 RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is as efficient as any RAM pickup has ever been. In fact, it's the most efficient half-ton pickup in the industry right now, and as such it was recently named the 2015 Green Truck of the Year by the Green Car Journal. The award, which is given to the pickup truck that combines great efficiency with functionality, versatility, safety, value and style, was handed out at the San Antonio Auto & Truck Show in Texas earlier this month, and we here at Windward Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM were thrilled to see it win the accolade, especially since pickup trucks aren't traditionally known as being efficient.

"The RAM 1500 EcoDiesel is an incredible success for RAM truck and part of the brand's long term strategy to design and engineer the best trucks you can buy with fuel economy and capability top of mind," said Bob Hegbloom, President and CEO of the RAM Truck Brand. "We are thrilled to receive The Green Truck of the Year award, affirming our efficiency leadership in the truck market."

Hopefully the RAM 1500 trucks, always among the best-selling vehicles in the industry, will do even better with the success of the EcoDiesel model. An award like this one certainly can't hurt!
