Consumer Guide has named three different Fiat Chrysler vehicles a ‘Best Buy’ for the 2016 model year.
The 2016 Dodge Durango has earned the Best Buy Award in the Large SUV segment for the fourth consecutive year, while the Ram 1500 captured the Best Buy Award for Large Pickup Trucks for the eighth straight year. Also, the Jeep Renegade was named a Best Buy among Subcompact SUVs for the first time ever.
Consumer Guide says the Durango “offers a lot of versatility and capability in a manageable size, at prices that significantly undercut most class rivals,” making it a Best Buy for 2016. The Ram 1500, meanwhile, “offers an unbeatable ride/handling combination along with a high level of refinement, classy interiors, and some unique features.” Finally, the Renegade is a Best Buy because of its “class-leading off-road capabilities when properly equipped,” and “refined on-road handling and fun, stylish character.”
“We are pleased to recognize FCA’s enduring success in the Large SUV and Large Pickup Truck classes,” Tom Appel, Publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive, said in a prepared statement. “We are equally pleased to award the newest Jeep crossover Best Buy status for 2016.”
Consumer Guide Automotive editors analyze, compare and evaluate over 150 vehicles each year. The publication says their Best Buys “distinguish themselves as good values compared to other vehicles in their class,” while also scoring high on objective ratings.
