Wrapping up 2013

by David Zatz on

It’s nearly the end of the year, which means it’s time for every publication to do their best and worst lists for 2013. At Allpar, we traditionally do this with a survey; this year, for the first time, we used Google Insights to present surveys randomly to readers, asking just six questions.


We were expecting a much more even mix of answers for the question of “most significant Mopar of 2013,” but by far, the winner was the 2014 Ram pickup line, garnering 48% of answers. The #2 choice was the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee, with 21% of replies.

The predicted impact of the new Chrysler 200 shows how well Allpar readers understand the markets — midsize front wheel drive sedans sell far better than large rear-wheel drive cars do, as a group.  

For answers to the open-ended questions, and who our readers think should replace Sergio Marchionne when he leaves, see our main survey results page
