Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Winning Through 2020
Every year, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA; Stellantis) brands rack up awards wherever and whenever possible. Although 2020 was a bit of an odd year with a lack of auto shows, award ceremonies, and other automotive accolades, FCA still outperformed the competition. At Aventura Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram, it’s obvious what brands matter to us the most. We took a look at what we could celebrate about 2020 and compiled a list for each of our brands.
Ever since 2016, Chrysler has been known for one thing – the best family minivan of all time, of all time! Sure, there is the Chrysler 300 sedan in the lineup, but it’s overshadowed time and again. Just don’t take our word for it though. Kelley Blue Book named the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica on Best Family Cars List, and many family-oriented publications like Good Housekeeping and PARENTS magazine also named the Chrysler Pacifica as “the best” there is. The Pacifica was also named on the Cars.com Top-Five Back to School List. Last, but not least, the 2020 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid earned Top Honors in the AAA Car Guide.
When it comes to the original off-road vehicle, Jeep will always be at the top of the list. Publications like Kelley Blue Book named the 2020 Jeep Wrangler on the KBB 5-Year Cost to Own Awards list, alongside the Chrysler Voyager. Autotrader also loves the Jeep, putting the Jeep Gladiator and Ram 1500 to its 10 Best Interior List for Under $50k and 10 Best Cars for Recent College Graduates List. It’s not just the big names either.
Jeep crossed in 2020 swinging, winning two awards in January, one from FOUR WHEELER Magazine, and the other as the 2020 North American Truck of the Year by NACTOY. The 2020 Jeep Gladiator was also named “Truck of the Year” by the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press and the Official Winter Truck of New England. If going off-road, it has to be a Jeep.
Dodge did very well for 2020, despite being stuck in the past of high-power engines. When will we see an electrified Dodge vehicle? The future seems uncertain on that one, but when it comes to ranking high, J.D. Power ranked Dodge number one during the Initial Quality Study and Dodge shared the spotlight with Ram during the 2020 J.D. Power APEAL Study. One more well-known name is the New England Motor Press Association, or NEMPA. This organization awarded the 2020 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye with the 2020 NEMPA Pure Power Award. Also, one last one for style, was the Styling Brand Image Award from KBB.
Ram Trucks kept bouncing back although 2020, and as a truck with such variety, the Ram 1500 won a number of interesting awards, starting with the 2020 MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Award for all the truck lovers out there. If any of our readers stepped into an old Ram Truck, they would know it’s a little bare. Now in the 21st Century, Ram has a little luxury too its name, and Cars.com named the 2020 Ram 1500 as the Luxury Car of the Year.
The Ram lineup isn’t just for show. Known for their towing power, Ram won the TFLtruck 2020 Gold Winch Awards, along with the Jeep Gladiator pickup truck. Ram Trucks also took home the gold during the Best Vehicle Brand awards by U.S. News & World Report and landed on the prestigious Car and Driver’s 10Best Vehicle list. Along with this high-class title, Ram also won the MotorTrend Truck of the Year title for another year, making it three consecutive years of winning the title.
