Consumer Guide Automotive Names 3 FCA Vehicles 2018 Best Buys
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica, 2018 Dodge Durango and 2018 Ram 1500 were given Best Buy Awards in their respective categories by Consumer Guide Automotive.
The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica won the Minivan and Family Vehicle Best Buy awards for the second year in a row. The 2018 Dodge Durango was given the Large SUV Best Buy for the sixth year in a row. Finally, the 2018 Ram 1500 has been given the Large Truck Pickup Best Buy award every year since 2008.
“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,” Publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive Tom Appel said in a press release on Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’s website. “In the cases of the Durango and Ram, that is especially true. As for the Pacifica, it’s simply one fo the most thoughtfully designed family vehicles we’ve ever evaluated.”
The Chrysler Pacifica made it’s mark on the market two years ago with it’s groundbreaking versatility and functionality thanks to features like the Stow-N-Go seating and Stow-N-Vac integrated vacuum. In addition, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the first hybrid minivan ever.
The 2018 Dodge Durango has class-leading towing capability (7,400 pounds with the HEMI V-8) and this year’s new SRT model brings a new level of style and performance.
The 2018 Ram 1500 is as versatile as trucks come, thanks to the segment-exclusive RamBox Cargo Management System with bedside storage compartments as well as hidden bins and flat-load floor.
Each year, editors of Consumer Guide Automotive inspect, evaluate and compare many vehicles by thoroughly testing models of all major brands throughout the United States. A vehicle does not become a Best Buy vehicle on objective ratings alone, according to Consumer Guide Automotive. The vehicles named Best Buys separate themselves as great values when compared to other vehicles in their segment.
