Ram 1500 and Chrysler Pacifica Earn Consumer Guide Best Buy Awards

December 13th, 2019 by

The Ram 1500 and Chrysler Pacifica are both celebrating having landed a spot on Consumer Guide’s Best Buy awards — both in the Large Pickup and Minivan categories. The latest wins mark a continuing streak for both vehicles in their respective segments. Consumer Guide editors are responsible for selecting the winners after an analysis comparing, evaluating, and testing all major models available to consumers in the U.S. 

“As the winner of the Best Buy crown for the fourth year in a row, the Pacifica offers class-leading horsepower and fuel economy, excellent road manners and ride quality, and an unmatched array of family-friendly features … all wrapped up in a stylish package,” said Tom Appel, publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive. “The 2020 Ram 1500 offers an unbeatable ride/handling combination along with a high level of refinement, premium cabin appointments and unique features.” 

As of now (Dec. 2019), the Chrysler Pacifica is the most awarded minivan since it was revamped in 2016. The model has received more than 125 industry accolades, and 2019 makes it the fourth year in a row that the Pacifica is the winner in Consumer Guide’s Best Buy minivan category. 

For 2020, Chrysler is offering the Pacifica Red S Edition, bringing a new look with a huge burst of color and attitude to the Pacifica’s already class-leading interior. On the inside, the Red S offers buyers Rodeo Red premium Nappa leather seats accented with Light Diesel Grey stitching and piping. There’s also an “S” logo on the seatbacks, while Silver Metal Brush hydro bezels adorn the instrument panel and door trim. 

As for the exterior, the Red S Edition includes finished such as a Red S liftgate badge, Black Noise Chrysler wing badges, and 20-inch wheels with a Black Noise finish. The Red S package also includes more than 100 safety and security features, KeySense entry, and a 20-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system. 

The Ram 1500, on the other hand, is considered the segment’s benchmark for technology, efficiency, convenience, and durability. Although the Ram 1500 now offers plenty of features that had never before been offered in a pickup, 2019 marks the 12th straight win for the model in the Large Pickup category. The Ram 1500 is no stranger to winning. 

When it comes to 2020 models, the Ram 1500 proves to be America’s most powerful half-ton diesel pickup thanks to its towing capability up to 12,560 pounds, and 480 lb-ft of torque. The all-new-and-improved 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine offers an industry-leading range of 1,000 miles on a single tank of fuel. The standard V6 — and V8 — configurations are outfitted with the eTorque mild hybrid system that improves fuel efficiency.
