2014 Ram 1500
MSRP: $23,600 You're just juggling pinless hand grenades when you name any pickup truck the "best." Pickup owners are the most loyal vehicle owners in the U.S. and just about any pick you end up with is going to explode in your face. Ram's sales are up 24% year-to-date, but Edmunds really likes the 2014 model and its eight-speed automatic transmission, a new fuel-efficient diesel engine with increased towing capacity and choice of rear coil springs or air suspension. Forget that both Ford's F-Series and Chevrolet's Silverado outsell the Ram by a wide margin. It's the options that are the key to wooing neutral buyers in the pickup wars.
