Consumer advocacy magazine, Consumer Reports, has chosen the 2014 Ram 1500 as its Top Pick in the pickup truck category. The last Chrysler vehicle to be a Top Pick was the 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The 18-year-old Top Pick award is based on several factors such as governmental crash tests and rollover scores, its own in-house road-test scoring, as well as its own subscriber-based problems reports.
The Ram 1500 actually had lower scores than the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, but CR determined it didn't have enough reliability data on the new GM pickups and some of its test drivers consider the Silverado as comfortable as the new Ram 1500. The Ram 1500's biggest strengths are its inviting interior and smooth overall ride, according to CR.
