Dodge, Jeep, and Chrysler vehicles took home a number of awards this week, while Fiat got a prize for affordability.
The Jeep Grand Cherokee was named Best SUV of 2023 in cars.com, the first vehicle ever to win the award, which was instituted this year. The editors noted the wide range of Grand Cherokees, in two and three row versions, rear and four wheel drive, V6 and V8, and plug-in hybrid, with three four wheel drive systems.
Vincentric’s Best Value in America awards are now in their 19th year; they had seven passenger-car awards (excluding luxury-car awards), five SUV-and-van awards, three luxury SUV awards, and four truck awards. There were also five brand awards; Dodge got the SUV and Van Brand, while Ford got Passenger Car and Truck, Volvo got Luxury Car, and Tesla got Luxury SUV.
In Passenger Car, the awards were fairly evenly distributed; Chrysler won in Large Sedan. No brand got more than one award. In SUV and Van, STLA won two awards, for the Dodge Durango (Large SUV) and Chrysler Pacifica PHEV (Minivan). The Wagoneer missed out on Luxury SUV, but the Gladiator won in Small/Midsized Pickup in the general Truck category.

I have to wonder how these ratings are determined, after looking at reliabilty ratings?
Vincentric ratings are based on cost of ownership which includes resale value.
What more proof does Stellantis need in providing loyal Chrysler fans a next generation 300 sedan? Every time I see one I am still impressed with its classic styling and distinctive luxury impression in a sea of cookie cutter import luxury sedans. Why walk away from that status and marketability based on the pressures of group think and not market driven reality? Folks want it that is clear. Just, as awarded, a great value with a following.
