Grapevine, Texas – Members of the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) have named the all-new 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 the “Full-Size Pickup Truck of Texas”. The writers vote following their annual Truck Rodeo.

“This is quite an honour,” said Mike Accavitti, Director, Dodge Marketing. “In a head-to-head competition, our game-changing all-new 2009 Dodge Ram unseated the new Ford F-150, long considered the leader in the market. This is not only the best pickup truck we’ve ever built, it’s the best pickup on the market, period.”

The competition names three overall winners, including Truck of Texas, which went to the 2009 Ford F-150, as well as SUV and Crossover of Texas, along with twelve additional categories. The judging is by more than 40 TAWA members over two days of on- and off-road evaluation.
