Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: Esquire Magazine’s 2015 Truck of the Year
The Chevy Colorado was just named the 2015 Motor Trend Truck of the Year. Perhaps the only reason the award didn’t go to the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, America’s most fuel-efficient pickup: it wasn’t eligible since it wasn’t new or significantly updated for this model year. The EcoDiesel wasn’t, however, ineligible for Esquire Magazine’s 2015 Truck of the Year distinction—and what a good thing, because, ultimately, the 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was named the winner.

Unlike Motor Trend’s award, the Truck of the Year distinction from Esquire takes into consideration all truck models in the US. Editors consider all the aspects of a great truck, including efficiency, functionality, safety, style, value, and versatility.
“Recognition from Esquire Magazine is proof that pickups have found their way into a variety of lifestyles,” explained Bob Hegbloom, President and CEO of Ram Truck Brand. “In such a competitive market, we are thrilled to earn a ‘Truck of the Year’ title from Esquire. The Ram 1500 delivers with a winning combination of best-in-class fuel economy and capability and going forward, Ram will continue to set the pace with the best trucks in their segments.”
The announcement for Esquire Magazine’s 2015 Truck of the Year winner and considerations was published in the magazine’s December issue.
The 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel was also recently named Green Car Journal’s 2015 Green Truck of the Year.
