This marks the ninth year running for the annual Rocky Mountain Vehicle of the Year Awards, which are intended to recognize all-new or significantly updated models for being at the top of their class. RMAP includes automotive journalists from the Rocky Mountain area, including Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming.

For the Truck of the Year award, RMAP took several attributes into account; these include fuel economy, performance, value, and vehicle features. After examining all competitors, the organization whittled it down to a top three, which also included the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Heavy Duty and the GMC Canyon.
