FCA US Vehicles Continue to Rake in Awards
November 21, 2016
It’s November and while many of us are busy raking our leaves, FCA US is raking up a big pile of awards. Our trophy case is bursting at the seams with everything from best buy to most loved, from coolest to hottest. We’re also scoring in categories covering big, mid-size, small and even micro. We’re being recognized for luxury, performance and family. We’re going green and putting the pedal to the metal and a little of everything in between.
The Envelope Please
Here’s a look at some of the biggest award contenders. The all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica is the minivan that everyone is falling for. It’s been named a best buy and a top pick. It won both Minivan and Family Vehicle Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy Awards. It’s been called the “Best Car to Buy” from editors at The Car Connection. It took home the 2017 autoTRADER.ca Top Pick for Minivan, and much more. And that’s all just during the month of November.
Best in Show
Consumers Digest has named its “Best Buys” for the 2017 model year and FCA US brands were well represented. In the minivan segment, the Chrysler Pacifica took the lead. In the Luxury Car segment, the Chrysler 300 rolled to the top. In the Subcompact SUV segment, the Jeep Renegade accepted the win while in the Pickup segment the Ram 1500 secured that spot. In addition the Jeep Grand Cherokee was named a “Best Buy” for the seventh consecutive year!

Some Like It Hot
When it comes to bringing the heat, FCA US is sizzling. The Jeep Wrangler earned the ‘Hottest 4×4-SUV’ award at the SEMA show in Las Vegas and the Dodge Charger took inaugural ‘Hottest Sedan’ honors. Both vehicles were awarded for providing the perfect canvas for customization.
Four FCA US vehicles have also been named the “Most Loved Vehicles in America” by Strategic Vision. The Dodge Challenger is the ‘most loved’ specialty coupe, the Dodge Charger is ‘most loved’ full-size car for the third consecutive year. Dodge Durango wrangles in the award for mid-size SUV, also for the third consecutive year, and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited scores in the entry SUV category.
Strategic Vision’s research shows that true advocacy and brand loyalty begin not when buyers are simply “satisfied,” but when they truly love their driving experience.
