    • 2018 Chrysler Pacifica wins both Minivan and Family Vehicle Best Buy awards for second consecutive year
    • 2018 Dodge Durango continues as Large SUV Best Buy for sixth consecutive year
    • 2018 Ram 1500 named Large Pickup Truck Best Buy every year since 2008
    • 2018 Fiat 124 Spider captures Sporty Performance Car Best Buy for second consecutive year

    December 5, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. - The automotive editors at Consumer Guide® Automotive awarded four FCA US LLC vehicles the 2018 Best Buy distinction.

    In its second year on the market, the Chrysler Pacifica captures both the Minivan and Family Vehicle Best Buy awards two years in a row. Also for the second consecutive year, the Fiat 124 Spider takes home a Best Buy award, this one in the Sporty Performance Car category.

    Dodge Durango earns the Best Buy award in the Large SUV segment for the sixth consecutive year and the Ram 1500 captures the Best Buy award for Large Pickup Trucks for the 10th straight year.

    “There's a lot of good product hitting the market these days, but some designs are so well executed that they endure the test of new challengers. In the cases of the Durango and Ram, that is especially true,” said Tom Appel, Publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive. “As for the Pacifica, it's simply one of the most thoughtfully designed family vehicles we've ever evaluated. Likewise, the tradition-bound 124 Spider delivers a considerable dose of driving pleasure for a very reasonable price.”

    Consumer Guide Automotive editors analyze, compare and evaluate numerous vehicles by extensively testing all major models available in the United States. According to Consumer Guide Automotive, a vehicle does not become a Best Buy based solely on objective ratings; Best Buys also distinguish themselves as good values compared to other vehicles in their class.

    Chrysler Pacifica
    The Chrysler Pacifica reinvents the minivan segment with an unprecedented level of functionality, versatility, technology and bold styling. Re-engineered from the ground up on an all-new platform, the Pacifica delivers class-leading gasoline and hybrid powertrains to the minivan segment. Equipped with more than 100 available safety and security features, the Uconnect Theater rear seat entertainment system, and a full array of comfort and convenience technologies, the Chrysler Pacifica is a no-compromises minivan ideally suited for today's families and has earned its spot as the most awarded minivan of 2016 and 2017.

    The Pacifica Hybrid takes this revolutionary vehicle a step further with its class-exclusive, innovative hybrid powertrain. It’s the first electrified vehicle in the minivan segment and achieves 84 miles per gallon equivalent (MPGe) in electric-only mode and 33 miles of all-electric range.

    Dodge Durango
    The Dodge Durango’s combination of uncompromised utility, advanced technology, class-leading towing (7,400 lbs. with the HEMI® V-8) and driving range, confident driving dynamics and aggressive styling make it the three-row Dodge Charger of the SUV segment. The Durango is available with an 8.4-inch Uconnect touchscreen radio and features Drag and Drop menu bar, Siri Eyes Free and Do Not Disturb. Additionally, Durango offers consumers more than 60 available safety and security features, including standard all-speed traction control and electronic stability control (ESC), which improve overall vehicle handling and performance both on- and off-road.

    Ram 1500
    The Ram 1500 boasts numerous segment-exclusive features in areas most important to truck buyers, supporting best-in-class fuel efficiency with the exclusive EcoDiesel V-6 engine. Class-leading ride and handling is accomplished via a unique link-coil rear suspension system with optional air suspension. Other features, such as Ram Box bedside storage, hidden bins and a flat-load floor, offer unique solutions for cargo. Available in 11 different trim levels, the Ram 1500 has a full-size pickup for everyone.

    Fiat 124 Spider
    The Fiat 124 Spider revives the storied nameplate, bringing its classic Italian styling and performance to a new generation. Paying homage to the original 124 Spider nearly 50 years after its introduction, the Fiat 124 Spider delivers the ultimate Italian roadster experience with driving excitement, technology and safety combined with iconic design.

    Geez they really knocked it out of the park with the Pacifica. Props to the 1500 and the Durango for still being recognized despite their respective ages.

    Charger has been a great success - due to it's versatility (and a few someones have been paying attention) as they have adapted this model's elements in the Durango!;)
