When purchasing a new car, it’s important to consider whether it will hold its value over time—but that’s where Consumer Guide Automotive comes in. Each year, the automotive publication posts a list of its Best Buys–vehicles that offer consumers everything they could want without losing their value over time.

This year, three Fiat Chrysler vehicles earned recognition on the Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buys list. The Dodge Durango, Jeep Renegade, and Ram 1500 all came out on top in their respective categories, showing the industry that they have what it takes to stand out in crowded segments.

This is the fourth year in a row the Dodge Durango has earned the Best Buy Award in the Large SUV segment, while the Jeep Renegade is recognized in the Subcompact SUV class for the first time. The real standout, though, is the Ram 1500, which earned the Large Pickup Truck Best Buy award for eight consecutive years.

“We are pleased to recognize FCA’s enduring success in the Large SUV and Large Pickup Truck classes,” said Tom Appel, Publisher of Consumer Guide Automotive. “We are equally pleased to award the newest Jeep crossover Best Buy status for 2016.”

To determine the winners of this award, Consumer Guide Automotive editors put more than 150 new cars, trucks, minivans, and SUVs sold in the American market through their paces. Each vehicle went through rigorous tests. The editors at Consumer Guide Automotive didn’t just consider the vehicles’ objective ratings—they also took dollar value into consideration.
