In the ever-evolving landscape of the automotive industry, the ability of a vehicle to retain its value over time speaks volumes about its enduring quality, innovation, and desirability among consumers. The prestigious J.D. Power 2024 U.S. ALG Residual Value Awards have once again underscored the superior performance of Stellantis vehicles, with the Jeep® Wagoneer, Wrangler, and Ram ProMaster emerging as champions in their respective segments.
Wagoneer: Setting the Benchmark for Lasting Value –
Earning the spotlight for the second consecutive year, the Wagoneer has cemented its position as a trailblazer not just for its cutting-edge innovation and style but notably for its remarkable ability to maintain value over time. With its 420-horsepower Hurricane Twin Turbo I-6 engine now standard across all models, the Wagoneer combines formidable power with exceptional towing capability, boasting a best-in-class 10,000-pound tow rating. Its spacious interior, marked by best-in-class overall passenger volume and generous legroom in the second and third rows, emphasizes comfort without compromise.
“This repeat distinction demonstrates Wagoneer is more than a trailblazer for cutting-edge innovation and style,” says U.S. Head of Sales Jeff Kommor. “Wagoneer consistently delivers that most fundamental requirement of a sales transaction – lasting value for the customer. And that’s something we will never lose sight of.”
Jeep Wrangler: Resilience and Off-Road Mastery –
The iconic Jeep Wrangler reigns supreme as the epitome of off-road prowess. Recognized as this year’s top performer among off-road utility vehicles in J.D. Power’s residual value awards, the Wrangler showcases improvements galore for 2024. Enhanced with larger tires, increased ground clearance, and improved traction ensures an unparalleled off-road experience. Amenities like the Sky One-Touch power top, advanced technology with a 12.3-inch touchscreen radio, and standard safety features such as first- and second-row side-curtain airbags further solidify its desirability and enduring appeal.
Ram ProMaster: The Workhorse Champion –
Completing the triumphant trio, the Ram ProMaster stands tall as the epitome of reliability and functionality among commercial vans. Garnering the top spot for residual value among its competitors, the ProMaster raises the bar with new safety and convenience features for 2024. Including amenities like a heated steering wheel and heated windshield, along with the ParkSense with Stop system, underscores its commitment to safety and driver assistance. Boasting best-in-class cargo volume and payload, the ProMaster remains a stalwart companion for businesses and professionals seeking a reliable workhorse.
