U.S. News & World Report has named Ram Truck the Best Truck Brand for 2020. The Best Vehicle Brand awards, evaluating 35 brands, recognizes industry-wide excellence for cars, SUVs, trucks and luxury vehicles. LaFontaine Automotive Group is proud to be the largest Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM dealer in Michigan, with four convenient locations in Fenton, Lansing, Clinton and Saline. We have the inventory and knowledge to get you into the RAM of your dreams.
“At Ram, we’re focused solely on building the best trucks and commercial vehicles in the market. This award from U.S. News & World Report acknowledges that effort,” said Reid Bigland, Head of Ram Brand. “In a highly competitive segment, Ram is committed to innovation and powertrain leadership. By offering more content, more comfort and segment-leading features Ram is building trucks that meet and exceed the needs of the widest range of buyers.”
The rankings are based on an in-depth analysis by U.S. News & World Report of all credible, published reviews and test drives, as well as reliability and safety data.
“The Ram 1500 has the capability of a work truck with the interior of a luxury SUV,” said Jamie Page Deaton, Executive Editor – U.S. News Best Cars. “It’s one of the few trucks that can do almost everything you ask of it, and do it all well.”
To determine the award winners, U.S. News Best Cars averaged the overall score of all the given brand’s products in each award class. The brand with the highest overall average score was named the winner in the category. The overall scores come directly from the U.S. News Best Cars rankings, which are based on a combination of safety scores, reliability data and the consensus of the automotive press.
