Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Ranked Best Pickup Truck in 2020

Ram 1500 EcoDiesel Ranked Best Pickup Truck in 2020

Each year, the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada (AJAC) holds a TestFest event to assess the contenders for the Canadian Car of the Year Award. For pick-up trucks, a special drive route is created to really put the trucks to the test and discover which ones can handle difficult conditions and which ones cannot. Because pick-up trucks are used in all kinds of conditions, this route features mud-lined puddles, inclines, and some light fording to find out the off-roading capability in relation to its highway driving range.


In 2020, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was named as the Best Pickup Truck in Canada by AJAC. Whether you are using the truck for work or just for fun, you can enjoy a great truck with all necessary features. The AJAC highlighted the fact that the half-ton Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is best-in-class for its 3.0-litre V6's 480 lb-ft of torque while also offering segment-best highway fuel economy for a 4x4 with 8.0L/100 km.
