The Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association has named the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica the ‘Best Family Car’, Fiat Chrysler has announced. Additionally, the all-new minivan received the association’s ‘Best Value’ award for its good value for money.
Journalists chose the 2017 Pacifica as the recipient of its ‘Best Family Car’ and ‘Best Value’ awards following a driving event in which they were able to sample the vehicle. GAAMA members enjoyed the Pacifica’s ride quality, fuel economy and optional rear-seat entertainment.
“GAAMA works hard at this event to evaluate a variety of vehicles for family friendliness and functionality,” said GAAMA President and CEO of AutoAcademics, Christopher Lawrence. “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.”
In addition to the Pacifica, the 2016 Ram 1500 receive GAAMA’s new ‘Best Family Truck’ award, which was added this year to recognize the role pickups now play in serving families.
“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.”
