Chrysler Continues to Rack up the Wins

Chrysler has been getting lots of love of late. That’s not just from the public who has been helping the auto-maker enjoy some of the best sales in a long time. There’s also the people handing out awards for the vehicles. In just this past week, Chrysler might be needing to build a whole new trophy shelf to keep track of everything that’s been rolling in.

To start with, Automotive News has given the Chrysler 300 an 83 in the Consumer Reports Large Sedan Ratings. That’s second place and still bests all the domestic competition. Automotive News praised the 2011 redesign of the 300 and even more for the additional V8-powered 300C that gives more power to consumers. All these traits help the 300 “score near the top of its category,” says David Champion, the Sr Director of Consumer Reports Automotive Test Center.

The next big win for the company is that Strategic Vision has put out their Total Quality Index study. On the report, Chrysler Group tied for second place. The company ended up scoring at the top of the charts for the Dodge, Jeep, and FIAT brands. Chrysler ended up with 870 for a score where the industry average is 861. The improvement from the previous years study is 2%, which might seem low, but it’s actually the highest improvement of any auto-maker in the study.

The final major news for Chrysler is that Total Car Score has named two of their vehicles in the Top 10 New Cars for 2013. The big winners were the 2013 Dodge Dart and the Ram 1500. They noted that the new Ram will be a major player in the large truck category from here on out. The Dodge Dart received praise based on their belief that it will help bring in a younger crowd to the dealers and win acclaim with the large amount of personalization options it has.

Definitely a good time for Chrysler as the good news just piles up. They have been doing everything they can to keep the good momentum continue and it really seems to be paying off. Who knows what “best of” they’ll be winning next.

Chrysler Ranked Top 10 Car Brand of 2012

Total Car Score has released its list of the top 10 car brands of 2012, and this year, Chrysler beat out BMW and Kia to earn the #8 spot on the list.

The list’s rankings were based purely on reviews and performance. Total Car Score, also known as the Rotten Tomatoes of car review sites, collects reviews from the most trusted car critics including Consumer Reports, Edmunds, The Car Connection, and MSN Autos, and they calculate a composite score based on those reviews. Chrysler made the top 10 list right alongside other top-of-the-line brands like Infiniti, Mercedes-Bez, and Lexus.

For Chrysler, this is an amazing accomplishment. They are the second most improved brand on the list with an overall score of 79.78 and 3.71 point improvement from 2011. Only a short time ago, some people had counted Chrysler out, and yet here it is on the top 10 brands of 2012. Chrysler’s comeback continues, and it shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
