For the past 35 years, AutoPacific has been a future-oriented automotive marketing research and product-consulting firm that publishes a wide variety of syndicated studies on the automotive industry. With that being said, AutoPacific recently published its 2021 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards recognizing the most satisfying vehicles on the market as rated by consumers.
Upon that list for 2021, was three Stellantis North America vehicles – Chrysler Pacifica, Jeep® Grand Cherokee, and Ram 1500.
Chrysler Pacifica adds Most Satisfying Minivan to a list of 155 honors and accolades since its introduction, while Jeep Grand Cherokee came out on top as Most Satisfying Mid-size SUV/ORV. Ram 1500 reigns as the Most Satisfying Full-size Pickup in the AutoPacific poll, which surveys more than 89,000 new car and light truck owners.
“It’s definitely a grand accomplishment to see three of the iconic brands from Stellantis each take home AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Awards for 2021,” said George Peterson, AutoPacific president. “The three models that were voted top in their class (Ram 1500, Jeep Grand Cherokee, and Chrysler Pacifica) are clearly cherished and appreciated by the consumers.
“Families continue to realize that a minivan can be the best vehicle for daily, kid-filled runabouts and the Pacifica delivers with impressive braking and handling, sliding doors that allow for easy access to the second row, exterior styling, passenger roominess, and overall comfort. Owners give high praise for the Ram 1500’s power and acceleration, soft ride, driver’s seat visibility, looks, braking, overall comfort, and clever cargo storage solutions. While the Grand Cherokee is an all-new model for the 2021 model year with a lucrative new three-row L taking the stage first, the previous-generation Grand Cherokee is a renowned trophy holder in AutoPacific’s VSAs, with consumers ranking it the most satisfying midsize SUV eight out of the nine past years.”
