THE FAMILY TRUCKSTER
BEST RIDES FOR YOU AND THE KIDS
We've come a long way from the days of the family truckster, as they called it in National Lampoon's Vacation.
Actually, the car I grew up in wasn't much different. We had this maroon, Chevy Caprice Classic Wagon. It was fantastic. We drove to Florida in it... in summer. My old man at the wheel... my pregnant mom in the passenger seat... and my idiot brother and me rolling around in "the way back."
I've got great stories... but that's not the point of this entry. It's to tell you that we're going to break down the top picks for family vehicles in this auto year.
Monday morning on Live at Daybreak we're going through every category... SUV's, min-vans, sedans, cross-overs. We'll give you the top picks for "family vehicles" in each category. This is more than just safety, although safety plays a big role. It's accessories, fuel economy, and affordability too.
I'm not sure yet which part airs when, but we'll have something new in each half hour of the program. We start at 5:00 AM.
