Established in 1986, the Automobile Magazine All-Stars is a list of the best vehicles currently in production. However, eligible vehicles are not limited to new or significantly changed. Automobile Magazine’s editorial staff searches for greatness in all segments. This year’s list of 11 vehicles includes the Ram 1500, for the third time in the past four years.

For 2013, the Ram 1500 offers buyers best-in-class 25 MPG fuel efficiency, new technology and new features without sacrificing capability. The Ram 1500 marks new innovation for the Ram brand as this truck delivers several pioneering and fuel-saving systems.

The 2013 Ram 1500 features an eight-speed automatic transmission, stop-start system, thermal-management system, pulse-width modulation and active aerodynamics, including grille shutters and active air suspension. It is available in nine trim levels, which you will discover by visiting Chapman Dodge. Other tech-minded features of significance include available Alpine audio, adjustable air, Keyless Entry with push start, ParkView rear backup camera, , 911 assist, SmartBeam automatic high beam control, rain-sensing wipers and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.

Inside the pickup’s interior also sets new standards in design and execution. Even the most basic models feature intricate door panels, comfortable and supportive seats and a sophisticated dash. On models equipped with the Torqueflite 8-speed transmission, a dash-mounted rotary gear selector replaces the console shifter to free up more space in the center console.

Standard safety equipment for  the 2013 Ram include front side thorax airbags and full-length side curtain airbags, as well as electronic traction and stability control, trailer sway control, hill-start assist and automatic reverse pinch protection on the windows and sunroof. Rain Brake Support uses the brake pads to occasionally brush water away from the rotors helping to keep them dry and better able to stop the vehicle.
