Fiat Chrysler Canada was the only domestic manufacturer to win three 2016 Canadian Black Book (CBB) ‘Best Retained Value Awards at the recent Canadian International AutoShow in Toronto. The Dodge Challenger, Charger and Jeep Wrangler each took home a residual value award in their respective segments, with the Wrangler taking the top spot in the rankings for the sixth year in a row.
“FCA’s three wins each make a huge statement about just how far its brands have come in recent years,” Brad Rome, president of Canadian Black Book, said in a statement. “One, the Jeep Wrangler achieved the highest retained value of any vehicle in the history of our awards. Next, the Dodge Charger became the first-ever domestic vehicle to win in our mainstream car categories. And, what’s more, the Dodge Challenger maintained its lock in the Sports Car class for the fifth consecutive year.”
Each year, Canadian Black Book hands out residual value awards in 20 different categories. The awards recognize those vehicles that have retained the greatest percentage of their original MSRP over the past four years and help Canadian car buyers easily identify those cars that offer the lowest cost of ownership.
In addition to the Challenger, Charger and Wrangler, the Dodge Durango and Ram Cargo Van were runner-ups in their respective categories for the 2016 Canadian Black Book ‘Best Retained Value Awards.
