We’ve got Motor Trend SUV and Truck of the Year

For the holidays, there’s good stuff here at Barnett.

For example, you’ll find the 2019 Motor Trend 2019 SUV and Truck of the Year. Jeep Wrangler is 2019 SUV of the year, and 2019 Ram 1500 is 2019 Truck of Year, making them winners of two of the most coveted automotive industry awards in extremely competitive segments.

Motor Trend's "Of the Year" awards recognize the best vehicles representing exceptional value, superiority in their classes, and impact on the automotive scene.

“The Jeep Wrangler and Ram 1500 are significant products at FCA. Concurrently winning Motor Trend’s SUV of the Year and Truck of the Year titles is a proud accomplishment, and a testament to the capability and determination of our employees,” said Mike Manley, Chief Executive Officer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. “These awards help to acknowledge our team’s tireless efforts to ensure the new Wrangler and the new Ram 1500 stand out in their competitive segments.

The Motor Trend "Of The Year" program is open to any all-new or substantially upgraded 2019 model-year vehicles. Instead of being compared against one another, contending vehicles are first put through Motor Trend’s full battery of performance tests to evaluate virtually every aspect of each vehicle. All competitors are then evaluated on three separate courses at a professional automotive test center before finalists are selected.

After weeks of testing conclude, the judges determine which vehicles will be given “Of the Year” titles. The winners are not chosen from a direct comparison against other finalists, but instead a result of how each contender measured against the award’s six criteria: design advancement, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value and performance of intended function. 

“For 2019, the Ram 1500 and Jeep Wrangler blew away our Motor Trend editors and judges by not only delivering class-leading capability for work and play, but truly impressive levels of refinement, technology, style and comfort,” said Ed Loh, Motor Trend editor-in-chief. “Congratulations for delivering two real winners.”
