December 22, 2017

If you’re in the market for a new car and skimming the lineup of 2018 vehicles, you may want to pay special attention to certain models. As a REALTOR®, you get exclusive deals on the purchase or lease of select Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep®, Ram, or FIAT® models—and this year, the benefit includes the Alfa Romeo Giulia and all-new Stelvio.

The deals are even bigger if you combine the savings with automakers’ year-end Big Finish incentives. You can view a full lineup of vehicles that are eligible under the REALTOR Benefits® Program partnership with FCA US LLC (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles). But here, we detail seven of the most anticipated models that you should take a look at.

Alfa Romeo Giulia: The Italian automaker returns to the U.S. market after a quarter-century with several new models, including the striking four-door Giulia sports sedan. It blends stunning Italian looks with a range of powertrains, including the 505-horsepower Quadrifoglio model (not included in the REALTOR Benefits® package) and the 276-horsepower turbo-four Edition. Price: The Ti AWD model lists at $42,990; the Quadrifoglio starts at $73,595.

Alfa Romeo Stelvio: SUVs have their advantages and disadvantages. But Alfa’s first SUV is drawing raves for its sportcar-like handling and responsive 280-horsepower engine. Serious performance fans might wait for the arrival of the Stelvio Quadrifoglio (not included in the REALTOR Benefits® package), a 505-horsepower beast bearing the four-leaf clover logo saved for Alfa’s most extreme offerings. Price: The base Stelvio with AWD starts at $44,990.

Chrysler Pacifica: Chrysler scored a home run when it launched the new Pacifica minivan in 2016, proving there’s plenty of life left in the “people mover” segment. Now the automaker is adding more features for those who want the ultimate in roomy transportation, including updated infotainment technology. There’s also an affordable new base model, the Pacifica L. Price: The base Pacifica with a 3.6-liter V-6 starts at $26,995.

Dodge Challenger: The 840-horsepower Challenger SRT Demon highlights the Dodge brand, securely positioning itself as a performance car line. For those who need a little less muscle, there’s an array of Challenger options, including the new Widebody, the 707-horsepower Hellcat, and more mainstream R/T, GT, and SXT versions. Price: Varies by model; the popular GT model starts at $34,590.

FIAT® 500L: The Italian automaker has expanded its lineup in recent years, adding several new models, including one for those seeking big space in a small package. And for 2018, the 500L people-mover adds new features like the next-gen Uconnect 4 infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, and a back-up camera. It also gets some modest but stylish exterior and interior tweaks. Price: Starts at $20,995.

Jeep® Grand Cherokee: Why settle for the same thing everyone is driving when Jeep® is adding even more unique versions of the rugged Grand Cherokee for 2018? This go-anywhere, confidence-inspiring midsize SUV is already one of the segment’s most competent off-roaders, while offering great on-road manners and “class-above” features. The Jeep® Grand Cherokee continues to be a popular choice among REALTORS®. Price: Varies by model, starting at $30,595.

Ram 1500: Forget those luxury sedans; a growing number of upscale American motorists are trading in on high-line pickups, like the 2018 Ram 1500 Limited Tungsten Edition. It delivers the classic towing and hauling capability, rugged durability, and the latest luxury features, from heated and cooled power leather seats to 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and more. Price: Starts at $56,515.
