Is there anything the fully redesigned 2019 RAM 1500 can’t do? This pickup’s most recent award confirms the answer is no. The recognition we refer to is the “Sunny Pickup Truck” award, earned at the 8th annual Topless in Miami competition presented by Haartz and hosted by the Southern Automotive Media Association (SAMA).

As the award name and the event title infer, SAMA’s objective is straightforward: identify the vehicles with the best drop-tops, or in the 2019 RAM 1500 model’s case, the finest sunroof. The contest judges were blown away by this well-rounded pickup’s dual-pane panoramic sunroof, with SAMA’s President, Jaime Florez, saying “With 10 square feet of sky view, the expansive sunroof amplifies the truck’s spaciousness, providing an open-view experience for both the front and rear passengers.”

At our RAM dealership serving Las Cruces, NM, we were curious as to how the contest was judged, so we did some digging. Turns out, SAMA members got to drive the finalists on various scenic routes in and around Key Biscayne, FL, enjoying what they referred to as an “al fresco” driving experience. Also, “sunroof quality” wasn’t the sole criteria for determining top honors: voters also evaluated styling, technology, cabin comfort, and ride refinement.

If you’re interested in a 2019 RAM 1500 near El Paso, TX, you’ll be happy to hear that this cutting-edge pickup truck’s panoramic sunroof is just one of many, many assets. This year’s RAM 1500 is lighter and stronger than ever, boasting exceptional towing and payload capacity. There’s more rear seat room to enjoy, and the debut of a new mild hybrid power system is a boon for RAM shoppers wanting to minimize their carbon footprint.

The 2019 RAM 1500 truly does it all. Visit us today for a test drive and see for yourself!
