For the second year in a row, the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has won the top award at the Canadian Truck King Challenge. It was joined on the podium by the GMC Canyon Diesel, Ford Transit, and Mercedes-Benz Metris.
This year’s nine Truck King judges chose Ram’s light-duty diesel truck as the best of the bunch in the lucrative full-size, half-ton segment, beating out the Ford F-150, GMC Sierra, and Chevrolet Silverado.
GMC’s Canyon was chosen as overall runner-up, and winner in the mid-size pickup category, where it competed against the Chevrolet Colorado, and Toyota Tacoma.
In the commercial van category, Ford’s Transit became a repeat winner among full-size vans, a group that also included the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter in rear-drive and 4×4 configurations.
Finally, the Mercedes-Benz Metris was crowned best small van, in a field that also included the Ram Promaster City, and returning champ, the Nissan NV200.
