One Dodge model made the cut for the second straight year to be named the winner in Cars.com’s Shoppers’ Choice Award.
So, which car do shoppers favor? According to a Cars.com announcement made at the company’s Best of 2013 Awards show in Detroit on Tuesday, it’s the Dodge Challenger.
The Challenger was one of 10 award finalists each selected based on new-car shoppers’ actions taken on the Cars.com site from August 2011 through September 2012. These behaviors included car listing searches, consumer reviews, and dealer contacts for more information about specific cars.
From those 10 models, the ultimate winner was determined through fan voting on the Cars.com Facebook page, in online voting that ran from Nov. 1-30.
“As the most popular vehicle on Cars.com two years in a row, there is no doubt that car shoppers love the Challenger,” said Patrick Olsen, Cars.com editor-in-chief. “This two-door coupe has an unmistakable design that attracts a wide array of drivers. We think the Challenger is a great car, and certainly a unique one, and clearly has a very impressive fan base.”
Cars.com lists the 10 finalists for its Shoppers’ Choice award, in alphabetical order, as follows:
- Dodge Challenger
- Dodge Durango
- Ford Edge
- Ford Mustang
- Honda Odyssey
- Jeep Grand Cherokee
- Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
- Kia Sportage
- Toyota Highlander
- Toyota Prius
“The competition was incredibly close, with just a few votes separating the top cars,” said Olsen. “All of the finalists were great cars, and are clearly favorites of many shoppers. Research indicates that shoppers value awards given by their peers, and this diverse list of cars offers great options for any car shopper.”
