If you look at a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and a 2016 RAM 1500, you may not see many similarities between the two vehicles other than in size. The RAM 1500 is a full-size pickup that’s as refined as it is rugged. The Chrysler Pacifica is a minivan that’s as attractive as it is technologically advanced. But these two amazing vehicles share more than just size– they were both recently awarded top honors as “Best Family Car”. 

At the Family Car Challenge which is hosted by the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA), over 40 journalists got to test and rank 24 vehicles. Here at Woody Folsom Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM, we’re proud to say the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica was awarded both “Best Family Car” and “Best Value.” Meanwhile, the 2016 RAM 1500 took home the award for “Best Family Pickup Truck.”

“GAAMA works hard at this event to evaluate a variety of vehicles for family friendliness and functionality,” said Christopher Lawrence, GAAMA President and CEO of AutoAcademics, according to PR Newswire. “Our members were thoroughly impressed by the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. It’s a home run for today’s busy families, offering versatility, functionality, technology, and an attractive design all in one vehicle.”

With options for two 10-inch touchscreens, a built-in vacuum cleaner, and automatic Stow n’ Go seating, it’s hard to imagine another car beating the Chrysler Pacifica. 

As far as pickups go, “For many, a pickup truck represents the smartest choice for a do-it-all family vehicle,” said Lawrence. “The 2016 RAM 1500 is loaded with well-thought-out features that are important to families: segment-leading fuel efficiency, impressive ride quality, unique storage solutions and a comprehensive infotainment system.”
