Work Truck magazine today announced that the Ram 4500/5500 Chassis Cab truck has been named its 2015 Medium-duty Truck of the Year. This is big news for Ottawa area business owners in need of a medium/heavy duty truck.
The announcement marks the second time in five years that the Class 4 and 5 Ram Chassis Cab has earned the publication’s top honor.
“Fleet managers today are looking for medium-duty trucks that deliver and the Ram 4500/5500 meets that requirement hands down,” said Sherb Brown, publisher of Work Truck magazine. “The truck is tough and functional, and it doesn’t hurt that it’s great to drive. Congratulations to Ram on this well-deserved award.”
The winner of the Medium-duty Truck of the Year award is selected by readers of Work Truck and Heavy Duty Trucking magazines. Those readers are comprised of more than 100,000 operators of medium-duty trucks.
“As a full-line truck manufacturer, the commercial truck market is extremely important to Ram,” said Bob Hegbloom, President and Chief Executive Officer, Ram Brand, FCA – North America. “It’s an honor that the readers of Work Truck and Heavy Duty Trucking magazines have singled-out our Ram Chassis Cab trucks for this award. And we’re pleased to be recognized for delivering the attributes most important to business owners.”
Readers were asked to consider which models best fit their fleet requirements, including application effectiveness, durability, quality, servicing, maintenance and lifecycle costs. Eleven different trucks qualified for this year’s Medium-duty Truck of the Year ballot.
