Chrysler Among 10 Best Car Brands in 2012

Chrysler is pleased to announce that it has been named one of 2012’s Top 10 Car Brands by Total Car Score, a well-respected automotive research and comparison website that ranks every car, truck, van and crossover on the market.

Different than the awards for top-scoring car, which focus exclusively on individual models, the list of top car brands ranks automakers according to the overall strengths of their entire lineup. The goal, says Karl Brauer, editor in chief of Total Car Score, is to provide “a data-driven assessment of which automakers are producing the most desirable, highest-quality cars.”

The fact that Chrysler made the Top 10 means that all of our vehicles, from the Chrysler 200 to the Chrysler Town & Country, displayed the kind of consistency that brings only positive attention. And that’s not all—while we scored higher across the board than most of the competition, we also showed the second highest year-over-year improvement, jumping a whopping 3.71 points in total automaker score.

Provided this trend continues—and we see no reason why it shouldn’t—we’re looking forward to climbing even higher in the ranks next year.
