There are several manufacturers of reliable vans and trucks for families, including Ford, Dodge, Honda and Toyota. Some things to look at when researching a good family care are safety, reliability, seating capacity and price.
According to U.S. News, the highest-rated minivan in 2015 was the Honda Odyssey. The Honda Odyssey has room for up to seven passengers and has a remarkably high safety rating, making it a solid choice for a family vehicle.
In the full-size truck category, U.S. News rated the Ram 1500 as the best truck in 2015. However, the regular cab on the Ram 1500 only has room for three passengers. Drivers who are interested in using this truck as a family vehicle should consider paying a little more for the crew cab option, which has room for up to six passengers.
