Another round of automotive awards, another honor (or several) for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica, the model that is taking the minivan world by storm. The Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA) recently held their 2016 Family Car Challenge. They brought together 24 vehicles to be tested and evaluated by over 40 journalists who attended the event. The journalists evaluated the vehicles for functionality and family friendliness over the course of scenic drives around Buford, Georgia. After examining the features in all the vehicles, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica stood out. GAAMA President Christopher Lawrence particularly commented on its versatility, functionality, technology, and design, and he wasn’t the only GAAMA journalist who was impressed. In fact, the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica was given the award for “Best Value,” and then went on to become the overall winner of the Family Car Challenge, honored with the title of “Best Family Car.”

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica wasn’t the only FCA US vehicle to impress the GAAMA journalists. The organization recently added the family truck award, understanding that for some families, a truck might be the best overall choice. This year’s winner of the “Best Family Pickup Truck” award was the 2016 RAM 1500, which makes yet another award for that popular model as well.

It’s clear that the GAAMA journalists are in agreement: the best place to find the right vehicle for your family is at your local RAM and Chrysler dealership.
