2019 RAM 1500 Earns Green Truck of the Year

January 6th, 2019 by

Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM & FIAT loves bringing the best vehicles to our customers in the Los Angeles, CA area. Our exquisite line of RAM trucks gets better with each model year, and this year is no different. That’s why we’re here today!

Green Car Journal is a publication that has been covering the world of eco-conscious vehicles for years now. Amongst the other accolades they hand out each year is the Green Truck of the Year, and this time around, the all-new 2019 RAM 1500 was nominated and won the title! GCJ’s publisher and editor Ron Cogan heaped praise upon the RAM 1500, saying “The new RAM 1500 makes a bold statement with its overall design, functionality, lighter weight, and notable efficiency for a full-size pickup,”

This is the first RAM to feature the eTorque mild hybrid system – a system that replaces a normal alternator on an engine with a generator and battery combo to run functions to improve both responsiveness and efficiency. And the best part of the eTorque system? It functions independently of the engine, which means that popular engines like the 1500’s 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 remain unaffected, but still gain the benefits of increased mileage and responsiveness.

And while the RAM 1500 has been improved for the better, the towing and excellence you’ve grown to know RAM is all there: even though this truck is lighter than last year, the RAM can tow up to 12,750 pounds as well as sit a 2,300-lb payload in the truck’s bed.

So if you’re ready to check out a brand new RAM truck, stop into our Thousand Oaks, CA RAM dealer here are Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM & FIAT. Our friendly staff and expert salespeople will provide you with the best deal for a buying experience that’s second to none. See you soon!
