2013's Top Tailgater: 2013 Ram 1500
Base price:
$23,100

The Ram 1500, which Chrysler updated significantly for 2013, wins the Lombardi Trophy for tailgating thanks to a bevy of party-friendly features.

Olsen says tailgaters will especially appreciate a pair of lockable "RamBox" storage containers built into either side of the Ram's truck bed. Chrysler designed the RamBoxes to hold 140 12-ounce cans each, so there's little risk of your party guests running out of drinks.

Another tailgate-friendly feature: a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot you can rent access to for a day for just $10 -- perfect for going online during your party to check out your fantasy-football picks.
