Work Truck magazine recently announced that the Ram 4500/5500 Chassis Cab was its 2015 Medium-duty Truck of the Year this year. The winner each year is chosen by actual readers of Work Truck and Heavy Duty Trucking magazines; those readers include more than 100,000 operators of medium-duty trucks, so they know what they’re talking about.

“Fleet managers today are looking for medium-duty trucks that deliver and the Ram 4500/5500 meets that requirement hands down,” explained Sherb Brown, the publisher of Work Truck magazine. “The truck is tough and functional, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s great to drive. Congratulations to Ram on this well-deserved award.”

Readers didn’t just choose a truck at random. They were tasked with thinking about which ones best fit requirements for their own fleets. Those requirements include application effectiveness, durability, lifecycle costs, maintenance, quality, and servicing. In total, readers considered 11 different trucks for the 2015 Medium-duty Truck of the Year award before ultimate choosing the offering from Ram.

“As a full-line truck manufacturer, the commercial truck market is extremely important to Ram,” commented Bob Hegbloom, who is the president and CEO of Ram here in North America. “It’s an honor that the readers of Work Truck and Heavy Duty Trucking magazines have singled-out our Ram Chassis Cab trucks for this award. And we’re pleased to be recognized for delivering the attributes most important to business owners.”
