They say good things come in pairs.
Earlier this year, WardsAuto named Ram 1500 as one of the Top 10 Best Interiors in the market. Now the publication will add the pickup to another awards list as the editors named the 2019 Ram 1500 as one of its Top 10 Best User Experience (UX).
“The Ram 1500 earned Wards 10 Best Interiors honors earlier this year and now lands a Wards 10 Best UX trophy because its user experience is unparalleled among full-size pickup trucks,” said Tom Murphy, WardsAuto managing editor.
“A truck this size needs a big command center and Ram delivers with a 12-inch vertical touchscreen that seamlessly controls phone pairing, audio, climate adjustments and upgraded navigation.”
WardsAuto editors evaluated vehicles’ overall user experience based on user friendliness, infotainment features, sound systems, vehicle connectivity, driver assistance technology, information/displays, system compatibility, voice control, materials and overall value.
Ram 1500 made its mark on the list with state-of-the-art technology, including the most powerful audio system ever available in a pickup, Harman Kardon audio system with 19 premium speakers, 900-watt surround sound amplifier, 10-inch subwoofer and active noise cancelation. Other UX features include all-new SiriusXM with 360L personalized listening experience and a 360-degree Surround View Camera with bird’s-eye perspective of the pickup.
“The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 was designed to be the most technologically advanced pickup ever and we are honored that WardsAuto has chosen the Ram 1500 for Ward’s 10 Best User Experience list,” said Jim Morrison, Head of Ram Brand, FCA US LLC – North America.
“We are dedicated to keeping Ram truck customers connected, engaged and informed all while keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.”
This is the latest in what’s been an eventful year of recognition for the brand. Recently, Kelley Blue Book listed Ram 1500 as one of the Best-Selling Cars of 2018. The WardsAuto list comes after the brand announced a new addition to the agricultural industry, the 2018 Ram Harvest Edition Chassis Cab.
All of the winners will be celebrated on October 2 in Novi, Michigan, at the WardsAuto User Experience at the Suburban Showplace.
