It’s been an exciting year for Dodge and there aren’t signs that the brand’s good news will slow down anytime soon. Just in time for the new year, Dodge recently earned notable awards and high safety ratings.

Most Loved Cars in America

In November, Strategic Vision announced the results of their Customer Love Index (CLI) 2016 survey and three Dodge models were named “Most Loved Cars in America.” The 2016 Dodge Charger earned the title in the Full-Size Car segment, the 2016 Dodge Challenger won the Specialty Coupe segment and the 2016 Dodge Durango earned its top spot in the Mid-Size SUV segment.

The results are based on Strategic Vision’s quantitative New Vehicle Experience Study (NVES) of more than 44,000 owners, the CLI results represent the “Most Loved Vehicles” in their segments as rated by new vehicle buyers.

ALG Residual Value Award

Following the Strategic Vision awards, the 2017 Dodge Charger earned the 2017 ALG Residual Value Award in the “Full-Size” category for the third year in a row. ALG is the industry benchmark for residual values and depreciation data and the Residual Value Awards recognize vehicles that rank better than competitors in the same segment.

In a press release from Dodge, Eric Lyman, vice president of industry insights for ALG, praised the Dodge Charger for its versatility and performance. “Striking a delicate balance between traditional sedan and muscle car, the Dodge Charger represents the shifting trends in the full-size segment,” said Lyman. “A wide range of powertrain and comfort features ensure there is a perfect Charger for every personality. High performance teams up with high value as the Dodge Charger lands back-to-back Residual Value Awards in 2017.”

Five-Star Overall Crash Rating

But, most importantly, Dodge is entering the new model year with two models that have earned five-star overall crash ratings from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Since both models are muscle cars known for speed and power, Dodge has integrated more than 70 safety features to keep the driver and passengers safe. Five stars is the high the highest possible crash test rating and from the NHTSA and cars.
