Consumers Digest has named five Fiat Chrysler cars to its list of ‘Best Buys’ for the 2017 model year.
The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica represented the minivan category on the ‘Best Buys’ list and was joined by the Jeep Grand Cherokee (mid-size SUV), Jeep Renegade (subcompact SUV) Ram 1500 (pickups) and Chrysler 300 (luxury cars).
“With our selection of five of its 2017 models as Consumers Digest Best Buys, FCA US garnered more than 10 percent of the total number of Best Buys for a model year for the fourth model year in a row,” said Consumers Digest editor Rich Dzierwa. “Of particular note, the new-for-2017 Chrysler Pacifica was one of only four 2017 Consumers Digest automotive Best Buys that was a unanimous selection of our panel.”
The Consumers Digest ‘Best Buys’ list aims to identify those vehicles that represent good value for money within their respective segments. Value is determined “by purchase price and ownership costs, as well as comfort, performance and utility among other factors,” and cars are judges based on a range of characteristics such as acceleration, ride quality, fuel economy, fit and finish, styling and interior ergonomics.
