AUBURN HILLS, MI--Nov. 27, 2012: Decisive Magazine has named the new 2013 Ram 1500 "Urban Truck of the Year" in conjunction with its "2013 Urban Vehicles of the Year" list.

We are extremely pleased that the automotive industry continues to recognize the efforts of Ram Truck brand, and honored to receive Decisive Magazine's 2013 Urban Truck of the Year award for the new Ram 1500," said Fred Diaz, President and CEO-Ram Truck Brand and Chrysler de Mexico, Chrysler Group LLC. "We've worked passionately to build durable, capable trucks with best-in-class fuel economy. Winning awards in such a fiercely competitive market resonates with our customers."

Vehicles were chosen by the Urban Wheel Awards judging panel, comprised of some of the most notable and respected automotive reviewers in the country. Judges spent several months determining the most stylish, practical and attainable new vehicles for 2013 by driving and evaluating dozens of cars and trucks in a variety of North American urban settings.

"The Ram 1500 is as quiet as a luxury car and yet, is also extraordinarily capable as a truck. Rugged and yet smooth enough for a night on the town, the Ram 1500 really raises the bar on what a pickup truck should be," said Randi Payton, founder of the Annual Urban Wheel Awards.

The Urban Vehicles of the Year will be honored at the 17th Annual Urban Wheel Awards, the "Official Multicultural Event" of the North American International Auto Show, on Sunday, Jan. 13, 2013, in the MotorCity Casino Hotel's Sound Board Theater in Detroit.
