2014 Ram 1500 Eco DieselThe 2014 Ram EcoDiesel 1500 now proudly dons the title of Canadian Truck King after tackling the competition at the Canadian Truck King Challenge event. Designed to bring together the 2014 model year pickups from both the light and heavy duty segments for a multi-day, third party event, the 2014 Canadian Truck King Challenge was loaded with rigorous real world challenges and exercises meant to draw out a winner.

The 2014 Ram EcoDiesel 1500 took the crown for light-weight trucks, defeating models from top manufacturers such as Ford, Chevy, GMC, and Toyota. Before the challenge ended, other Ram models, such as the 2014 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty with Cummins Turbo Diesel power, claimed victory in their respective categories as well, allowing the Ram truck series to sweep the event!

An expert panel of judges watched intently as all entrants traveled through a series of intense, real-world, apples-to-apples style competitions that looked closely at capability, overall consumption, and on board features. Participants endured tests and trials such as 3, 629 kg (8,000 lb) of towing, 817 kg (1,800 lb) of payload hauling, and off-road driving.
