The Canadian Truck King Challenge is a rigorous, multi-day event in which light-duty pickup trucks and commercial vans are tested head-to-head by nine expert judges focusing on capability, consumption, and features. The testing included 6,000 pounds of towing, 1,000 pounds of payload, and off-roading.

Ram pickups are the second-best selling vehicles in Canada, with sales up 9% year to date. One quarter of Ram 1500 customers are opting for the VM diesel engine.  Ram trucks are Canada’s longest-lasting pickups, as measured by the percentage sold in the last 27 years that are still on the road today, according to third-party data.
