Dodge and Jeep Win Best Performance Cars! The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT and 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk won the top award in their segments. The criteria for the MotorWeek “Driver’s Choice Awards” includes price, practicality, performance and fuel efficiency.
FCA took home top honors in the following categories:
- Best Performance Car: 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT: “For extreme performance however, we have to give it to the folks at Fiat Chrysler America. After forever changing the muscle car landscape 3-years ago with the Hellcat, how do they follow that up? Well, by cranking that engine up to 840-horsepower and putting it into a Challenger, purpose-built for doing 9-second 1/4-miles. But, they didn’t stop with the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon either.”
- Best Performance Car: 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk : “They managed to cram a Hellcat engine into one of the most popular SUVs of all time, creating the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. This 707-horsepower 4X4 beats all comers from Europe or anywhere else for that matter, hits 60 in 3.5-seconds, and manages to retain most of the practicality you buy a utility for. That’s one heck of a Best Performance Car duo.”
