Ram 1500, Chrysler Pacifica Make Car and Driver 10Best Trucks & SUVs List

January 17th, 2019 by

Car and Driver magazine has named the 2019 Ram 1500 and 2019 Chrysler Pacifica to its “10Best Trucks and SUVs” list. The Ram 1500 and Pacifica were winners in the Full-Size Pickup Truck and Van categories, respectively.

The 2019 Ram 1500 is the most-awarded light duty truck in America and it continues to rack up awards.

“In its comfort, composure, and capability, the Ram 1500 is America at its best,” Car and Driver said. “In the upper trims, Laramie Longhorn and Limited, the detailing and material richness exceed not only those of any other current pickup, but the standards established by any domestic vehicle in many decades. And the Ram’s rear suspension delivers a class-leading ride with or without a trailer, smoothing out high-frequency chatter and shrugging off big impacts with ease.”

Like the Ram 1500, the Pacifica continues to earn awards and accolades for being the best minivan around.

This is the third consecutive year the Pacifica has been featured on the 10Best list.

“The Pacifica is the best minivan on sale today,” Car and Driver noted. “Not only does it provide the most-comfortable way to haul the tribe across town and country, it corners with surprising confidence (for a one-box, that is) thanks to its refined chassis. And when equipped with class-exclusive Chrysler’s Stow ’n Go seating (base and hybrid models lack this feature), it quickly converts from soccer-team shuttle to bathroom-remodeling supply hauler by allowing the second- and third-row seats to be folded into cubbies beneath the floor.”

Each year, Car and Driver puts out its “10Best Trucks and SUVs” list. Every contender is evaluated against other vehicles in its class using a 100-point scale. The scores are based on how well each vehicle meets its intended purpose, how compelling it is to operate and how good a value it is.
