FCA Ram Chrysler Awards and Cars + Coffee – Video
FCA US LLC brand vehicles stole the show at the annual Family Car Challenge hosted by the Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association (GAAMA), winning more awards than any other manufacturer at the annual competition.
The all-new 2019 Ram 1500 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.
GAAMA members evaluated various manufacturers’ vehicles, spanning several family-oriented categories. Journalists scored vehicles after driving suburban routes around The Hotel at Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia.
“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.”
