Cars.com™, a digital automotive marketplace, named the Ram 1500 and Chrysler Pacifica as its 2019 Best Pickup Truck and Family Car of the Year, respectively.
This makes it back-to-back Family Car of the Year awards for the Chrysler Pacifica. The minivan also won the website’s “Best of” Award – an award for all-new or fully redesigned vehicles – when it made its model-year introduction in 2017.
Winning vehicles were chosen by excelling in three key criteria: quality, innovation and value.
Ram 1500 – Best Pickup Truck of the Year
The honor comes around the same time as Ram Brand’s inclusion in the FCA US LLC “Big Game Blitz” social and digital advertising campaign. The campaign featured Ram Brand in multiple spots highlighting its line of pickup trucks surrounded by the grand football finale, including one with voice-over work done by Academy Award nominee, Jeremy Renner.
Chrysler Pacifica – Family Car of the Year
The Pacifica’s victory comes during FCA US LLC’s 35-year anniversary of inventing the modern minivan. What began with the Dodge Caravan and Plymouth Voyager in 1984 has turned into six generations and 14.6 million minivan sales.
Also to commemorate the milestone, FCA US LLC is releasing new 35th Anniversary editions of the Pacifica, Pacifica Hybrid and Dodge Grand Caravan this summer. Special edition minivans will have available features such as: new badging, an all-black interior with Cranberry Wine accent stitching, and upgraded content, in addition to the already extensive list of standard equipment.
