For the seventh consecutive year, it was announced on November 13th that the Ram 1500 is a Consumer Guide Best Buy. The honor comes in the category of Large Pickup Truck and highlights the brand’s ability to bring high-quality vehicles that offer an exceptional level of value. In total, Chrysler Group had five vehicles on this year’s leader board. Tom Appel, Publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive said, “We congratulate Chrysler Group for holding a leadership position in the minivan, large SUV, and large pickup categories despite improved competition. We’re especially delighted to see Chrysler make its mark in the fiercely competitive midsize-car arena.”
The other Chrysler Group winners included the all-new Chrysler 200 in the category of Midsize, the Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan in the category of Minivan for the fifth year in a row, and the Dodge Durango in the category of Large SUV for the third consecutive year.
Consumer Guide announced the winners only after evaluating and comparing over 150 cars, trucks, SUVs, and minivans for sale in the American marketplace. The winners are those that not only performed well when evaluated on pre-determined aspects, but also those who were comparatively superior to others within their segment.
