Four Wheeler named the Ram Rebel as the 2016 Pickup Truck of the year. For the 27th annual Pickup Truck of the Year Award, the Ram Rebel had to beat out three other competitors: Chevy Colorado Z71, Nissan Titan XD PRO-4X, and the Toyota Tacoma TRD Off-Road.
Judges based their decision on a variety of tests; how fast the trucks will go from 0-60-mph, quarter-mile acceleration and and 60-0-mph braking distance, etc.
It wasn't limited to one specific terrain either. the trucks were put through their paces on both track and off road during the week long testing period.
The final scores are separated into 5 categories and each accounting for a certain percentage of a full score.
Trail Performance (30 percent)
Empirical (25 percent)
On Pavement (20 percent)
Interior (15 percent)
Exterior (10 percent)
They didn't mention exactly how many points the Ram Rebel ended with but it was noted that the Rebel dominated 4 of the 5 categories.
