When it comes to finding your next family car, the number of choices can be a little daunting. We could go with the typical family minivan, but they don’t quite make them like they used to – some are still stuck in the past with limited commodities. SUVs and crossovers dominate a large part of the auto market, and some can offer a nice middle ground. There are even some trucks out there that could work for a small family. So how does a consumer know the best choices? Companies like Digital Trends help shine a light with the “Best Family Cars for 2019” list.
When it comes to reviewing modern day technology, Digital Trends has over a decade of experience reviewing everything from electrical appliances to automobiles. If it’s a consumer product, they’ve reviewed it, and after performing their own investigation, they publish their findings online to give consumers a clearer picture.
The testing the Digital Trends automotive team are just as rigorous as any, going over not just the styling of the exterior and interior but also getting a real feel for all the vehicle has to offer. That means countless hours conducting real-world testing on highways, back roads, even off-road and on racetracks (for the vehicles designed for such, of course). Test drivers also fiddle with the technology and safety features offered, in a controlled environment, to see all there is to a vehicle before compiling their review.
Best Family Cars for 2019 List
Did we say some minivans are stuck in the past? We did, but the 2019 Chrysler Pacifica is not one of those minivans. With high-tech features like an Uconnect Theater rear-seat entertainment system, available 4G Wifi, and more than 100 available safety and security features, this minivan is anything but dull. Able to seat up to eight people, including the driver, there’s all sorts of ways to manage space for people and cargo. Thanks to the second-row and third-row Stow ‘n Go seats that are stored in the cabin floor, there are nearly 250 seating combinations a consumer can perform. This allows them to make use of 87.5 cubic-feet behind the second row, 32.3 cubic-feet behind the third row, or all 140.5 cubic-feet behind the first row (driver and front passenger).
"The Pacifica proves that minivans are still the best option for buyers who need to haul a lot of people or stuff…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." - Digital Trends
Some SUVs and crossovers offer a nice middle ground in today’s auto market, and the 2019 Dodge Durango SRT is no exception. The Dodge Durango is already powerful in varying ways starting with the award-winning 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 engine, able to generate up to 295 horsepower and 260 lb-lft of torque, and with a best-in-class towing capability of 6,200 pounds; and the classic 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 engine, able to deliver best-in-class 360 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque, and class-leading towing capability of 7,400 pounds. When Dodge decided to add the 392-cubic-inch HEMI V-8 delivering 475 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, they changed the game for good. Driving an SUV that’s able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds and run a quarter-mile in 12.9 seconds is no joke.
