GAAMA is an organization with a mission to “further professionalism of the automotive media; provide a forum for newsworthy people and products connected with the automotive industry; and to bring together people whose activities are related to the field of automotive journalism, public relations and related fields for the mutual benefit of all parties.” GAAMA held the Family Car Challenge at the end of May, inviting dozens of journalists to a special event where they critiqued and voted on a large collection of vehicles while test-driving them on scenic routes in the state of Georgia.

The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica minivan earned high praise for its many helpful features, versatile cabin and overall worth. It was honored with two accolades: “Best Family Car” and “Best Value,” beating out 23 other models built by a variety of automakers to nab the award.

“Our members were thoroughly impressed by the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica,” said Christopher Lawrence, GAAMA President and CEO of AutoAcademics, in a release. “It’s a home run for today’s busy families, offering versatility, functionality, technology and an attractive design all in one vehicle.”
