Chrysler 300 named an Edmunds ‘Most Wanted Vehicle’

The iconic Chrysler 300, with its elegant design and world-class performance, has been named a 2018 Edmunds Most Wanted Vehicle.

The 300 was the winner in the Large Car segment in the annual awards given by Edmunds. The recognition honors the most in-demand vehicles in 17 segments, based on sales, days-to-turn and shopper interest data on Edmunds.

“Bold and aggressive, the Chrysler 300 stands out in a class of largely look-alike sedans, and its originality makes it one of the most popular large cars on the market,” said Jessica Caldwell, executive director of industry analysis, Edmunds.

To determine the 2018 Edmunds Most Wanted Award winner for each of the 17 segments, Edmunds analyzed data from the first nine months of 2017 for all models on sale during that period. Rankings in each of the data sets analyzed were weighted equally to determine the winners in each segment.

“The awards celebrate the one vehicle in each segment that is winning both the hearts and wallets of car buyers,” Edmunds wrote.
