When it comes to hitting that sweet spot between value and luxury, FCA US LLC has got it nailed. The automaker has been known for a long time for manufacturing affordable vehicles that come loaded with a ton of cutting-edge technology, safety, and comfort features, but the latest news related to the company shows that they’re getting recognized by the bigwigs of the industry. The automotive editors at Consumer Guide named three FCA US LLC vehicles – the 2016 Jeep Renegade, 2016 RAM 1500, and 2016 Dodge Durango – as Best Buys.
Here at Village Motors Inc., we are proud to say that we carry all of these vehicles on our lot. In order to choose the Best Buy recepients, the editors at Consumer Guide thoroughly evaluate over 150 new cars, trucks, minivans, and SUV sold in America and choose the top ones. They compare these vehicles by extensively testing various features, such as safety, technology, powertrains, and comfort. However, a vehicle cannot become a Best Buy based solely on objective ratings. Instead, the Best Buy also has to distinguish itself as a good value compared to other vehicles in its class.
First off, the 2016 RAM 1500 was named as the Best Buy in the Large Pickup Truck category for the seventh consecutive year. Editors especially liked the efficient 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel engine, the TorqueFlite eight-speed automatic transmission, and the bevy of interior luxuries. The 2016 Jeep Renegade captured the Subcompact SUV Best Buy award for the first time, thanks to its unique combination of best-in-class off-road capability, open-air freedom and convenience, and nine-speed automatic transmission.
Look for these three award-winners right here at Village Motors Inc.!
