Ram: King of Canadian trucks

by David Zatz on

For the third time in a row, the Ram 1500 has been crowned the overall winner of the Canadian Truck King Challenge.

The tenth annual Canadian Truck King Challenge, run in Ontario but including seven judges from across Canada, includes real-world evaluations covering nearly 4,000 km, during which payload is tested up to 4,000 pounds, towing is tested up to 15,000 pounds, and off-road capability is assessed.

Ram-Canadian Truck King

There were eleven pickups entered into the Canadian Truck King Challenge competition, and the 2017 Ram 1500 earned both the ½-ton and overall titles. Unlike the last two winners, the Ram 1500 Crew Cab Sport was powered by the Hemi V8.

The Cummins diesel powered Ram 2500 earned the top spot in the 3/4-ton category.

Ram is both the fastest growing truck brand in Canada and, according to registration data, the longest-lasting line of pickups.
