Today we said farewell to our 2012 Pickup Truck of the Year winner (the Ram Power Wagon) and welcomed our 2013 winner, the Ram 1500 Outdoorsman into the long-term test fleet. We will miss the rugged capability of the Power Wagon and you can read the final 20,800-mile review in the August '13 issue. The 2013 Ram 1500 has already wowed us with a lot of features that make us love the truck. The new eight-speed automatic behind the 5.7L Hemi V-8 is just awesome. It really utilizes the V-8s power better than the previous transmission. The shifter knob (instead of a stalk) takes some getting used to but it's easier to use than a clunky stalk. Stay tuned for the full first quarter review of our long-term 2013 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman in an upcoming issue of Four Wheeler.
