Each year, Car and Driver put together their 10Best vehicle list, and the Ram 1500 has developed a reputation for stealing the spotlight on this list. And with the release of Car and Driver’s 2022 10Best Vehicles list, the Ram 1500 has done it again, earning a coveted spot on the list for the fourth consecutive year.
Even more satisfying for Ram fans, the Ram 1500 was the only pickup truck to earn a spot on the list—for the third year in a row. That’s not surprising though: The Ram 1500 is the most awarded light-duty pickup truck in America.
Though this award applies to the entire 2022 Ram 1500 lineup, Ram submitted two specific models for consideration: the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX and the 2022 Ram 1500 Limited 10th Anniversary.
“Making the list for the fourth consecutive year – the third consecutive year as the only pickup truck – the Ram 1500 continues to be shockingly quiet and is still hands-down the best driving pickup truck,” remarked Sharon Silke Carty, editor-in-chief, Car and Driver. “There’s great breadth to the lineup, every model accomplishes any task thrown at it. We really appreciate all the work the Ram team has done to make it enjoyable to drive.”
So how does Car and Driver deem which 10 vehicles are worthy each year? According to Ram, Car and Driver is looking for “exceptional driving engagement,” vehicles that offer recognizable value, and are clearly superior to competitors.
We’d say the Ram 1500 checks all those boxes.
