For the third year in a row, an FCA branded vehicle took home the top honor of ‘Best Family Car,’ this year with the all-new Ram 1500. The 2019 Ram was honored with overall Best Family Car and Best Family Truck awards. The Chrysler Pacifica was named the Best Three-Row Family Car for the second consecutive year, as well as Best Green Family Car. 

“The GAAMA Family Car Challenge is unique in that we host the only vehicle competition specific to the needs and desires of today’s families,” said Daryl Killian, GAAMA president and host of The AutoNsider on News & Talk 1380 WAOK, an Entercom Radio Station based in Atlanta.

“For the third year in a row, our members were impressed with Ram 1500’s combination of technology, functionality, drivability and family-friendly features. It’s only fitting that the all-new 2019 Ram 1500 won our top overall award given how the 2019 Ram 1500 is loaded with well-thought-out features that are important to families: segment-leading fuel efficiency, impressive ride quality, clever storage solutions and a comprehensive infotainment system. The repeat wins for the Chrysler Pacifica are also impressive. Today’s busy families need a vehicle that can help make their lives easier, and the Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid exceed that promise.” 

The updated Ram 1500 leads the full-truck segment with the most safety and security features, making it perfect for discerning parents. With the new eTorque system in both the V6 and V8 engine configurations, you’ll get added fuel efficiency that makes it easy to handle tough jobs without spending extra for it at the pump. Handle anything with the 12,750 pounds of towing capability and 2,300 pounds of payload.

The Chrysler Pacifica is the most awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017 with its eyes set on the same prize for 2018. It reinvents the minivan segment with unparalleled functionality, versatility, technology, and bold styling. It’s the first electrified vehicle in the minivan segment and achieves 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode and 33 miles of all-electric range. And with more than 100 available safety and security features, parents can drive with more confidence than ever.
