"Ram trucks have become the top choice for working professionals," said Ricardo Rodriguez-Long, president and founder of the Hispanic Motor Press Foundation. "And while Ram's lineup may be built for work, these powerful trucks also set benchmarks in comfort, luxury materials, innovation and technology. Now you can literally work out of a luxury vehicle."
The Hispanic Motor Press Foundation selected a panel of more than 20 automotive experts to identify the top 10 best new vehicles for Hispanic families. The jurors identified a single model in each category that reflects the best value in the market for Hispanic families. All facets of the vehicles were evaluated, including design, comfort, safety, economy, handling, performance, functionality, environmental requirements, driver satisfaction and value.
"The Jeep Gladiator is unlike anything in the market – perhaps the ultimate adventure vehicle," said Rodriguez-Long. "It's built to handle the demands of an active lifestyle while maintaining both comfort and agility for everyday on-road driving. There is no comparison, a clear winner in the Adventure category."
