Here Are the Top Contenders for the U.S. News Best Trucks for Families Award

A pickup truck might not be a common choice for a family vehicle, but if you need to make it work, it can be done.

This year’s crop of family trucks is offered with more comfort and safety features than ever before, and different configurations allow you to put the kids safely in the back of the cab. If your next new vehicle needs to run double-duty for work and family, this list is for you.

Our award methodology considers professional automotive reviews, safety and reliability ratings, seating and cargo volume, and the availability of family-friendly features. The 11 automotive categories we rank are covered by the awards, and the model with the highest composite score in each category earns the award for that category.

Keep in mind that the scores on our site are updated constantly as new expert reviews and data become available. Therefore, the scores mentioned in this slideshow may not match the scores in our reviews.

Now, here are the trucks you should consider for your family.
