Historically, pickup trucks have not been great family vehicles. Instead, manufacturers intended them to be utility vehicles that could occasionally haul a few people around with its 1-ton load in the bed. Recently, trucks have taken a turn and become some of the most popular vehicles among families, and Edmunds.com says the Ram 1500 is the best pickup for our Green Cove Springs area families. Here’s why.
The engineers at Edmunds.com test 300 vehicles every year on a 115-mile real-world course that includes city streets, freeways, and twisty canyon roads. They score the vehicles in 30-plus categories, including performance, comfort, interior, technology, utility, value, and more. The 2019 Ram 1500 came out on top of all competitors in the heavily contested Best Family Pickup Truck category, but that’s no surprise to us.
The 2019 Ram 1500 not only offers a range of V-6 and V-8 engines to match all families, but it is also 225 pounds lighter than before, making it easier to zip through windy roads. Add to that an available Uconnect 4C infotainment system with a 12-inch touchscreen, a 360-degree camera, SiriusXM with 360L, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and more, and it was a shoo-in to us.
Edmunds.com testers pointed toward the 2019 Ram 1500’s durability, technology, luxury, and efficiency as their key reasons for making it the 2019 Best Family Truck.
