The editors at Consumer Guide analyzed and tested the major models in the U.S. in order to determine the winners of the awards. The Ram 1500 won for the Large Pickup category, while the Chrysler Pacifica topped the Minivan category.

Since 2016, the Chrysler Pacifica has earned the title of the most awarded minivan, having garnered over 125 industry accolades. This is the fourth consecutive year that the minivan has won the Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy Award in its segment.

The Pacifica has a nice combination of fuel economy and horsepower, as well as convenient features for families to utilize. The Chrysler Pacifica Red S Edition is new for the 2020 model year and brings added style to the minivan.

The interior of the Red S Edition has Silver Metal Brush hydro bezels on the door trim and instrument panel. There are also premium Nappa leather two-tone seats in Rodèo Red. The “S” logo on the seatbacks and Light Diesel Grey stitching further highlight the seats.

On the exterior, the model has 20-inch wheels with a Black Noise finish, Black Noise Chrysler wing badges that have Velvet Red inserts, and a Red S liftgate badge. In addition, the 20-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system and Advanced SafetyTec keep you both entertained and secure.

The Ram 1500 won the award in its category for the 12th year in a row. The durable truck can haul up to 2,300 pounds and tow up to 12,750 pounds. It offers fuel-efficient V8 and V6 engines.

For 2020, you can opt for the 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine, which delivers 480 lb-ft of torque. This engine allows the truck to drive more than 1,000 miles with one tank of fuel and tow up to 12,560 pounds.
