Three Dodge Models Named America’s Most Loved
Strategic Vision is an organization that annually releases the Consumer Love Index (CLI), an index that measures how much owners love their new vehicle after 90 days of ownership. Since “love” isn’t easily measured, the CLI test asks consumers for a rating on a scale of 1-7 on over 120 different aspects that drivers experience. When all of the data was collected and analyzed, three Dodge vehicles scored highest on the CLI and named as America’s 2016 Most Loved SUVS, Trucks, and Cars in their segment.
Mid-Size SUV – Dodge Durango
The Dodge Durango took the title of most loved midsize SUV this year, and there are a couple of reasons why. Aside from being able to seat seven people and its best-in-class 27 highway mpg, it also offers a number of convenience features. The Dodge Durango offers up to 84.5 cubic feet of cargo space and a few different seating configurations like the 60/40 fold-and-tumble second-row seats, and the 50/50 split-folding third-row seats.
A little entertainment goes a long way, and the Durango is available with two 9-inch seatback-mounted screens available for keeping back seat drivers busy. Plus, Uconnect apps are available to the driver and front seat passenger. Above all else, it has over 60 available safety and security feature, making this SUV a favorite family vehicle.
Full-Size Car – Dodge Charger
How could the Charger not pop up on this list? When equipped with the SRT Hellcat engine it is fastest sedan on the road and has a lot to offer. Aside from its four engine options, including the 707-hp supercharged 6.2-liter HEMI SRT Hellcat engine, it also has a fuel economy rating of 31 highway mpg and a driving range of over 570 miles.
Options are nearly unlimited on the Dodge Charger, offering a number of available combinations. The exterior paint job is available in one of ten colors, there are twelve wheel designs, eleven 20-inch wheel options, twelve types of seating trims (six for standard seats, six for sport seats), and a number of packages for increased personalization, performance, and attitude. It’s hard not to love something that you helped create.
Specialty Coupe – Dodge Challenger
What is a specialty coupe? It’s hard to say, but some would call it a personal luxury car, but let’s not play the fool. The Dodge Challenger is a muscle-car, plain and simple. To call it anything else is just wrong, but we can find the allure in calling it a luxury car. It does come with a number of performance and comfort features after all, not to mention the power punch it’s packing.
Style and technology are mixed to define the Dodge Challenger inside and out, from its four engine options and brake systems to its interior comforts and technology. Plus, it shares many personalization options with its sibling, the Dodge Charger, starting with eleven body paint colors, body graphics, badges, and stripes, specialized hood designs depending on the trim, eleven seating options, best-in-class cargo volume, and cockpits designed for high performance. Control the road with the icon of adrenaline, the Dodge Challenger.
