2019 Ram 1500 Big Horn

Praised for its “sunny” disposition, the 2019 Ram 1500 earned highest honors at the recent Southern Automotive Media Association’s Topless in Miami Competition Presented by Haartz. Driving away with the “Sunny Pickup Truck” title, the 2019 Ram 1500 bested its competition thanks to its expansive dual-pane panoramic sunroof.

“With 10 square feet of sky view, the expansive sunroof amplifies the truck’s spaciousness, providing an open-view experience for both the front and rear passengers,” said Jamie Florez, SAMA president.

After cruising around the most picturesque areas of Key Biscayne, Florida, journalists cast their vote for the vehicle that provided the highest ride quality, most advanced technology, exceptional design and “overall open-air experience.”

Choose between two cab configurations (Quad Cab and Crew Cab), two box lengths (6-foot-4 inches and 5-foot-7-inches), and two drivetrains (4×2 and 4×4).
