Holly Battle New Vehicles, News, Trucks

Trucks are no longer just for contractors and farmers. More and more people are choosing a truck for their full time family vehicle of choice. The 2017 Ram 1500 was recently given the “Best Family Pickup Truck” award from the GAAMA for the second year in a row. It’s not hard to see why, either. Great fuel economy? Check. Towing Capacity? Of course. A spacious and comfortable interior? You’ve got it. Plus with the affordable MSRP of just $26,495 and great safety features as well, the 2017 Ram 1500 might just be your next family vehicle.

A huge reason why families are choosing trucks now instead of minivans or other vehicles is because of their capability. The 2017 Ram 1500 can tow up to 10,620 pounds and has a max gas payload of 1,880 pounds. This, combined with its great fuel economy make it so that families don’t need a separate vehicle for work and play. This truck can get the kids to school every day and then take the whole family and the boat to the lake on the weekend.

This truck has a great interior for families as well. Trucks used to be utility only, but now they have comfortable interiors that can hold up to any other family vehicle. With full leather seats and real wood accents, your family will feel like they’re sitting in a luxury sedan. The Uconnect 8.4 media center will keep the whole family entertained as well. Plus there is plenty of storage space for toys, extra diapers, camping supplies, and fidget spinners. And whatever doesn’t fit in the cabin can be easily put in the bed of the truck.

Another reason why people love these trucks for their family is because of their many different capabilities. These trucks have all the power you need to take both the family and the boat to the lake every weekend. Features like Hill Start Assist and Trailer Sway Control make towing and launching a boat a cinch. Whether you like to take your family on weekly summer camping trips, or use the jet skis after work, this truck has the power for all of it.

On top of that, it’s safe and fuel efficient too. Owning a truck used to mean paying outrageous gas bills, but with the 2017 Ram 1500 that is no longer a problem. Its available Ecodiesel V6 engine gets up to 29 miles per gallon on the highway and 21 in the city. That’s why these half ton pickups are great for both getting to the grocery store as well as summer road trips.

Safety is a huge concern when it comes to family vehicles as well, and this truck is built with safety in mind. It’s made of a high-strength steel frame with a hydroformed tubular front frame unit and eight ultra-tough cross-members. Some of the many other safety features include four-wheel disc antilock brakes, side-curtain airbags, side-impact door beams, and dynamic front crumple zones. With so many safety features, your family will be fully protected at all times.
