Last month, Popular Mechanics magazine announced this year’s winners of their much-anticipated Automotive Excellence Awards. These awards are the subject of long deliberations by Popular Mechanics editors, who take their research very seriously. They visited factories, drove every vehicle they could get their hands on, talked with engineers, and debated among themselves at length before coming to their decisions. The vehicles honored are those that, as the editors put it in their introduction to the list of winners, “remind us why we love the automobile.”

With that kind of care and passion going in to the decisions, it means a lot for vehicles and brands to be honored. Which is why here at your local RAM dealership in Monroe, MI, we were thrilled to hear that the RAM truck brand was named the winner of the Best Truck category for their outstanding 2016 line up. Thrilled, but not surprised. As head of RAM Truck Brand Mike Manley said, “the objective for RAM is to build the best trucks in the market” – and with that objective in mind, it’s not surprising that according to Popular Mechanics, they’ve succeeded. Every truck in the 2016 RAM lineup, including the popular RAM 1500 as well as the heavier duty RAM 2500 and RAM 3500, boasts incredible power, outstanding capability, and impressive fuel efficiency.

If you want to experience the truck Popular Mechanics editors declared “the model to beat,” we can help you right here at Monroe Superstore. Stop by any time to test drive any of the RAM lineup, like the 2016 RAM 1500.
