Pickup trucks have more to offer than ever before. They’re no longer just about power and capability, though performances continue to improve. Today, many pickup trucks are built to provide comfort for passengers, secure safety features, and even connected technology in the cabin. These are things that buyers expect to find in a family hauler like an SUV. But, according to the awards handed out by the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA), the new 2019 Ram 1500 is the new go-to family hauler.
The 2019 Ram 1500 won a major honor as the overall “Best Family Car” at the GAAMA annual Family Car Challenge earlier this year. The Ram 1500 was also honored as the “Best Family Pickup Truck” for the third year in a row.
The GAAMA Family Car Challenge is the only competition of its type to focus specifically on the needs and expectations within family travel. Vehicles from various manufacturers are examined, and awards are handed out for multiple family-oriented categories, such as “Best Three-Row Family Car.” In order to judge the vehicles on their family-friendly qualities, the GAAMA team of experts looks closely at the amenities, safety, and additional offerings of each vehicle. Journalists then spend time driving each vehicle around a suburban route to judge it in action as a family commuter.
The 2019 Ram 1500 earned high points for its generous family-friendly features. For instance, the Ram 1500 boasts excellent fuel economy, which is a priority for any family. The truck is also built with smart and flexible storage and cargo space, allowing busy families to stay organized when bringing along cargo they need, whether it be for a sporting event or groceries. The Ram 1500 offers a smooth ride, a comfortable and spacious cabin with advanced infotainment, and safety that provides the security families want in their vehicles.
