Car and Driver named the 2022 Ram 1500 to its 10Best vehicle list for 2022. This marks the fourth consecutive year the Ram 1500 has earned this award.

The award applies to the entire Ram 1500 lineup, the only pickup truck to secure a spot on this list for a third consecutive year.

Car and Driver evaluates each contender versus its peers using a 100-point scale, basing each score on how well it meets its intended purpose, how good a value it is, and how compelling it is to operate. This award recognizes the smartest, most entertaining cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans on sale today. Vehicles are judged with an emphasis on value, mission fulfillment, and if they’re fun to drive.

“Earning a spot on Car and Driver’s 10Best vehicle list validates our long-standing commitment to our customers through advanced technology and engineering expertise,” said Mike Koval Jr., Ram brand CEO - Stellantis. “We are honored to be the only pickup truck on this list for the third year in a row and express our gratitude to the Car and Driver editors for recognizing Ram 1500 as the best-driving pickup truck available today.”

For the fourth consecutive time, Car and Driver combined 10Best Cars and 10Best Trucks and SUVs into a single list — 10Best for 2022, which appears in the magazine's January issue.

For two weeks, Car and Driver editors drove, measured, tested, and scrutinized more than 70 cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans.  Car and Driver's criteria remain the same: every winner must deliver exceptional driving engagement, offer indisputable value and/or practicality and fulfill its mission better than any of its competition.

Any vehicle with a base price higher than $90,000 is excluded from consideration.
