Consumer Guide recently announced the ‘Automotive Best Buys’ for 2018, and four Fiat Chrysler Automobiles vehicles made the cut. For the second year in a row, the Chrysler Pacifica won both the Minivan and the Family Vehicle Best Buy awards. The Fiat 124 Spider also received an honorable mention for the second year in a row, earning the Sporty Performance Car Best Buy yet again. The Dodge Durango continued its six-year streak of winning the Large SUV Best Buy award, while the Ram 1500 was named the Large Pickup Truck Best Buy, which it’s done every year since 2008.
“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.”
The news comes during a red-hot, award-winning streak for FCA. Hopefully this an indication of future growth for the company, as it rolled out quite a few new products for 2018, including the next-generation Jeep Wrangler and almighty Dodge Challenger Demon.
