2015 RAM 1500 Among Best Family Vehicles

Consumers don't typically think of pickup trucks as family vehicles, but when we really consider these vehicles' strengths it would appear that they do the job better than we'd expect. Roomy cabin options and increasingly comfortable and technologically-advanced interiors make pickup trucks more conducive to toting children than ever before, while those gigantic truck beds put to shame any storage space offered up by sedans or even SUVs.

Its this versatility that led Kelley Blue Book to include a RAM pickup truck on their list of the “15 Best Family Cars 2015” for the first time this year. The friendly sales team at Windward Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM was pleased to see that the 2015 RAM 1500 was one of only two trucks to have made the list.

Specifically, KBB.com lauds the Crew Cab version of the truck because of how much backseat legroom (40.3 inches) it provides passengers, and since it can fit up to six passengers it actually is just as effective as a people-mover as a sedan or crossover.

Its smooth ride was part of the winning equation, as well, as KBB.com cited the ability of the 2015 RAM 1500 to “ride like a sedan” as part of the reason why it's a comfortable family vehicle.

Consumers have not typically considered RAM trucks as ideal family vehicles, but after looking at this list it's hard to deny their potential. Comfortable cabs, smooth driving dynamics and of course massive utility make it so, leaving us to wonder if RAM pickup trucks aren't the future of the family automobile.
