Dodge Journey, Grand Caravan Among Five Chrysler Vehicles To Receive 2013 Consumer Guide Automotive ‘Best Buy’ Awards

Consumer Guide Automotive released its list of “Best Buys” for 2013  and included five Chrysler vehicles on the prestigious list. The list includes 2013 Chrysler Town & Country Minivan, Dodge Journey Midsize Crossover, Ram 1500 Pickup Truck, Dodge Grand Caravan Minivan, and Dodge Durango Crossover.

The company announced the news in a press release.

Every year Consumer Guide editors evaluate different vehicles in 19 categories by driving and “extensively testing” models released over the past year. The vehicles that editors feel best meet the needs of a customer are then recognized with a “Best Buy” award.

“We are honored to have five of our vehicles, including three Dodge vehicles, recognized by Consumer Guide Automotive as Best Buys for 2013,” said Doug Betts, Senior Vice President – Quality, Chrysler Group said in a press release. “These awards are proof that Chrysler Group creates cars, trucks, crossovers, minivans and SUVs that both customers and critics appreciate.”

The Chrysler Town & Country vehicle contains a standard 3.6 liter Pentastar V6 FFV engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. Customers can also expect a new Blu-Ray DVD system with HD Interface, a 115-volt power outlet for gaming devices and two USB ports for phones and MP3 devices according to Chrysler.

The Dodge Journey is advertised as the “fastest growing and most versatile” crossover of its size and offers either a four cylinder or six cylinder engine and either front or all-wheel drive according to Chrysler. Customers can also chose whether they want five or seven seats in the vehicle as well. The vehicle was named a IIHS Top Safety Pick for the fourth consecutive year.

The new Ram 1500 includes a more fuel efficient 3.6 liter V-6 engine and newly designed technologies. New features for the 2013 model include an eight-speed TorqueFlite 8 transmission, stop-start and active aerodynamics, including grille shutters according to the press release. The vehicle comes in nine trim levels and with a new Uconnect system.

The Dodge Durango is a seven-seater SUV that comes with a 5.7 liter V-6 engine. The vehicle was named an IIHS Top Safety pick as well due to its 45 different safety features. Customers can also expect 20-inch wheels, Bluetooth Streaming Audio, and illuminated sun visors.
