The Chrysler brand has been named the Most Ideal Popular Brand in AutoPacific’s 2011 Ideal Vehicle Awards based on owners’ ratings of their 2011 cars and trucks.
Additionally, three Chrysler Group vehicles also earned awards as the Most Ideal vehicle so of their respective classes. The Dodge Challenger, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Chrysler Town & Country were named Most Ideal Sports Car, Most Ideal Mid-size SUV and Most Ideal Minivan, respectively.
The Ideal Vehicle Awards are based on owner ratings of 15 key attributes of their 2011 vehicles. Measures evaluated by customers include power and acceleration, ride and handling, interior roominess, and cargo space. More than 72,000 vehicle owners were surveyed by AutoPacific and asked if they would change their vehicles.
“It’s an honor for the Chrysler brand to be recognized by AutoPacific,” said Olivier Francois, President and CEO, Chrysler Brand. “Recognition by the customers who buy and evaluate our vehicles proves we take consumer input very seriously in all the vehicles we design and build at Chrysler.”
