For the second year in a row, the Chrysler 300 is the “Most Wanted” Large Car, according to Edmunds. The annual Edmunds’ Most Wanted Awards honor the most in-demand vehicles in 17 segments, based on overall sales figures, average time on the dealer lot and shopper interest data on Edmunds.
“It’s clear that the Chrysler 300’s variety of options and trademark bold styling continue to serve it well in the category,” said Ivan Drury, senior manager of industry analysis, Edmunds.
Edmunds analyzed data from the first nine months of 2018 for all qualifying new models on sale during that time to determine the winners in each of the 17 segments of the 2019 Edmunds’ Most Wanted Awards. For each segment, Edmunds identified the models with the highest levels of two types of shopper consideration based on Edmunds site activity, the highest sales and the lowest average days-to-turn. Edmunds equally ranked each of the four data sets to determine the winner in each segment.
