The Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association Lauds the 2019 RAM 1500

The scene is The Hotel at Avalon in Alpharetta, Georgia. The annual GAAMA Family Car Challenge is underway, and the group's auto journalists and members are driving a suburban route or two around the grounds. Their goal? To evaluate vehicles from a variety of automakers across numerous categories to find the most family-oriented among them.

At the end of the event, the all-new 2019 RAM 1500 reigned supreme, earning overall "Best Family Car" as well as "Best Family Pickup Truck" for a third year running. In fact, there were more awards for our automaker's Chrysler vans and RAM trucks than for any other manufacturer reviewed. So what did the experts appreciate the most about the new RAM 1500?

In short, the whole package -- the combo of cutting-edge technology, versatile functionality, driving enjoyment, and most of all, family-friendly features, including:

  • Segment-heading fuel efficiency, enhanced by a rear-axle thermal management system
  • Impressive ride quality, owing to a rigid, 98%-high-strength-steel frame, heavy-duty twin-tube shocks with frequency response damping, and progressive-rate rear springs, among other elements
  • The host of storage solutions, among them, an available RamBox® Cargo Management System with weatherized storage bins that drain and lock and interior space at the top of the class
  • An infotainment system with wraparound capability, namely the enormous 12-inch touchscreen-equipped Uconnect 4C, with split-screen viewing, 360-degree camera visuals, and SiriusXM support

Of course, as with any new RAM pickup, there's more than meets the eye. The off-grid getaway crowd can also look forward to best-in-class towing with a 5.7-liter HEMI® V8 with eTorque tech, too -- up to 12,750 pounds when equipped with a Max Tow Package. That's a dash more haul than what it takes to take along a couple of all-terrain vehicles, a small camper, an aluminum boat, and more.

Eager to see how the new 1500 will fare for you and yours? Visit us here at Medina Auto Mall and bring the whole gang. We're just a short drive from the Brunswick area, greater Akron, and nearby Cleveland!
