Three Chrysler Group vehicles have made AAA and Parents magazine's list of "Best Cars for Families" for 2006. The Dodge Charger, Chrysler Town & Country, and Jeep(R) Commander were chosen based upon their safety, performance, and value to consumers.
"We are delighted that AAA and Parents magazine has recognized three of our vehicles to this important list," said George Murphy, Senior Vice President -- Global Marketing. "Chrysler Group is committed to providing vehicles to our customers that are safe, innovative, fun-to-drive and deliver superior value."
AAA's 100 years of auto safety expertise, combined with Parents' insight into family needs and wants, led to a lengthy list of criteria for 2006 models. A team of reviewers from both AAA and Parents considered everything from air bags and fuel economy to cup holders and cargo space when voting. They installed child safety and booster seats and chose vehicles that are among the top crash-test performers.
The annual list appears in the April issue of Parents magazine, which hits newsstands Tuesday, March 14.
Named in the Sport-utility Vehicle (SUV) category, the Jeep Commander is the most capable seven-passenger vehicle in the market offering more power, control, flexibility, advanced safety technology and premium amenities than any of its three-row SUV competitors. The Jeep Commander includes the highest level of standard safety and security technology and features ever offered on a Chrysler Group vehicle. And, Commander offers more Jeep at an incredible value -- with a U.S. base price starting at $28,135 and with legendary Jeep 4x4 capability for $30,135. Because Commander is the first Jeep vehicle with three rows of seats, more passengers -- seven -- can visit more places to enjoy its go-anywhere, do-anything capability. And, of course, it's Jeep Trail Rated(R).
