Motor Trend highlights best trucks on the market

Posted on Thursday, December 5, 2013 at 10:06:37 AM

The pickup truck has long been a desired option for those interested in auto financing. Overall, vehicle sales in the U.S. has continued to rise, driven in part by this specific option.

And the best truck on the market may just be the Dodge Ram. The 1500 model recently earned Motor Trend's 2014 Truck of the Year, beating out eight other contenders for the title. One of Ram's best features was its engine, an EcoDesiel variant that provided the power and the energy efficiency buyers wanted.

The Ram 1500 went up against trucks such as the Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra and Ford Transit Connect, among others. This year marks the second in a row in which Ram took the top spot.

In addition, buyers with affordable auto financing have helped push total sales up once again. According to The Wall Street Journal, November's demand was up 9 percent from the same time last year, and the annualized sales pace is now 16.4 million units.

The pickup truck in particular helped Ford's sales for the month, which increased by 7 percent thanks to the F-150 truck and the Fusion sedan. Other automakers performed well also, including the Chrysler Group and General Motors.
