"Most Loved Vehicles in America"

Dodge Charger Completes Full-size 4-peat: Named One of Strategic Vision’s "Most Loved Vehicles in America"

Dodge Charger named winner of the full-size car segment for the fourth consecutive year
Strategic Vision measures the experiences of new vehicle owners and how their emotional responses influence product advocacy, sales and loyalty to determine the winners of the “Most Loved Vehicles in America”
With the quickest, fastest and most powerful sedan in the world, efficient V-6 power and all-wheel-drive capability, the Dodge Charger lineup is designed and engineered to provide the ultimate in high-performance comfort and road-ready confidence as America’s only four-door muscle car


December 5, 2017 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

Strategic Vision has named the Dodge Charger to its “Most Loved Vehicles in America” list for the fourth consecutive year.

“Dodge Charger exemplifies the energy, design, performance and quality cues that exemplify passion,” said Christopher Chaney, senior vice president – Strategic Vision. “This is what the 'Most Loved Vehicle' award represents, and why Charger is the segment leader.”

Strategic Vision has spent the past 40 years developing metrics that quantify emotion, culminating in The Edwards Commitment Scale®, which captures emotional responses ranging from "I hate it" to "I love it," with “satisfactory” as the intermediate option. Integrated into Strategic Vision's New Vehicle Experience Study (NVES), this scale becomes the key factor in the Customer Love Index™ (CLI), which directly measures Love in 120 different aspects of the ownership experience. These, combined with dozens of additional questions, gauge the strength and type of emotional connection buyers have with their vehicles to identify the Most Loved Vehicles in each segment.

Strategic Vision surveyed 34,064 new vehicle buyers, who purchased Oct. 2016 – Apr. 2017, after their first 90 days of ownership.
