A company that surveys new vehicle buyers finds that a greater number of Ram 1500 buyers say that their new truck meets their expectations. InMoment gives out annual eNVy awards based on customer reviews of comfort, quality, performance, safety and ownership cost. The 2021 Ram 1500 takes home the eNVy award for Full-Size Light Duty Pickup. The 2021 Dodge Challenger also received the eNVy award for Sports Cars.
"In this year's fourth annual InMoment eNVy Awards, the Ram 1500 won first place in the ultra-competitive Full-size Light Duty Pickup category while the Dodge Challenger won first place in the Sports Car category for the second year in a row,” said Tim Englehart, vice president, mobility at InMoment. “Congratulations to both the Ram and Dodge teams for their impressive scores in comfort, quality, and performance that led these models to win in their respective categories.”
The Ram 1500 pickup has received all sorts of awards in the last few years. It is praised for having redefined comfort in the truck category. Ram seriously upgraded the truck interior to make the pickup more comfortable for the driver and passengers. Its Uconnect infotainment 12” touchscreen system is easy for the driver to see and use. It features split-screen capability and 360-degree camera views, making it perfect for busy drivers who often use the vehicle as a mobile office.
The truck also offers some of the latest safety innovations. Active safety and security systems include adaptive cruise control, Forward Collision Warning, Blind-spot Monitoring and Ready Alert Braking. Class-leading ride and handling are tied to its segment-exclusive link-coil rear suspension system with optional active-level four-corner air suspension.
The Ram 1500 features up to 12,750 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload. The eTorque mild hybrid system delivers improved fuel efficiency in both V-6 (standard) and V-8 configurations. The Ram 1500 is America’s most powerful half-ton diesel pickup with 480 lb.-ft. of torque, and is rated at an unsurpassed 33 miles per gallon (mpg) highway, delivering up to 1,000 miles of range on a single tank of fuel.
Ram has promised to have an electric version of the Ram 1500 in 2024.
The Dodge Challenger is the world’s fastest and most powerful muscle car. For the 2022 model year, the 807-horsepower Challenger SRT Super Stock continues as the top of the Challenger lineup. Dodge is promising that we will see an electric muscle car concept vehicle this summer, probably in August.
InMoment conducts New Vehicle Customer Studies and then chooses the award winners based on the customer ratings. The buyers are asked to rank their vehicles on its ability to deliver comfort, quality, performance, safety and cost to own the vehicle.
