Three other Chrysler Group vehicles were highlighted by J.D. Power and Associates for ranking among the top three vehicles of their competitive class: Dodge Durango in the mid-size crossover/SUV category, Dodge Grand Caravan in the minivan category and Ram Dakota in the mid-size pickup segment.

“Having five vehicles rank at or near the top of their segments is the result of a lot of hard work and long hours dedicated to updating our product line.
