Digital Trends named two FCA US vehicles to their "Best Family Cars for 2019" list. The Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Durango SRT earned the title of best car for large families and best performance family car, respectively, based on practicality, technology and driving pleasure.
"The Pacifica proves that minivans are still the best option for buyers who need to haul a lot of people or stuff," Digital Trends said. "The Dodge Durango SRT shows that family cars can be fun and quick. Aside from its awesome HEMI® power, the Durango SRT also ticks practical family-car boxes."
The Digital Trends automotive team tests vehicles through a comprehensive scrutinizing process. They examine the qualities of the exterior and interior and judge them based on their expertise and experience in the context of the vehicle’s category and price range. Entertainment technology is thoroughly tested, as well as most of the safety features that can be tested in controlled environments.
Test drivers spend extensive time behind the wheel of the vehicles, conducting real-world testing, driving them on highways, back roads, as well as off-road and on race tracks when applicable.
