Four FCA US Vehicles Named 2018 Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buys

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.

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. Durango offers consumers more than 60 available safety and security features.

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. Available in 11 different trim levels, the Ram 1500 has a full-size pickup for everyone.
