Eight Chrysler Vehicles Win “Best Buy” Awards


Consumer Reports recently released their annual “Best Buy” list for the automotive industry’s 2012 model year and Chrysler LLC ranked up a number of wins.  Taking home eight trophies, the company doubled its number compared to 2010 and 2011 lists.  The 2012 model year marks many new models and refreshes for the brand, and the upgrades were awarded accordingly.

“We have gone to great lengths to enhance the craftsmanship and quality of all of our vehicles. These awards are evidence that we’re producing cars, trucks, crossovers, minivans and SUVs that customers – and critics – appreciate,” said Doug Betts, Senior Vice President for Quality of Chrysler LLC.  Consumer Reports takes numerous aspects of a vehicle’s life into consideration before it can be named a “Best Buy”.  Ergonomics, fit and finish, utility, acceleration, fuel economy as well as a vehicle’s resale value, warranty, maintenance costs and annual operating expenses are all variables in determining a winner.  For 2012, the Chrysler 300 with its newly released eight speed automatic and the Town & Country with its Pentastar engine took home wins.  The Jeep Grand Cherokee as well as the Dodge Durango, Grand Caravan and Challenger all were given the title “Best Buys”.  The brand’s workhorse, the Ram 1500, also took home a trophy as well as the company’s newest small car, the Fiat 500. 

“It’s a tremendous honor to have so many vehicles named as ‘Best Buys’ by Consumers Digest,” said Betts.
