Greater Atlanta Automotive Media Association Awards 2017 Ram 1500 Best Family Pickup Truck

The pickup truck isn’t often considered a family vehicle. But when you need a vehicle that can fill multiple roles such as taking the kids to practice, towing the boat to the lake, or delivering a load to the worksite, the pickup truck is the only real option. With more people using trucks as their only vehicle, Ram is stepping up and delivering options that make the Ram 1500 the most family-friendly pickup on the market.
