Contrary to popular belief, car shoppers do not have to spend a lot of money in order to acquire a quality vehicle, and plenty of great bargains can be found in Johnston Chrysler's new inventory. Here are some of the best budget vehicles on the market.

Dodge Dart GT

Drivers who are seeking an affordable sports sedan should give the Dodge Dart some serious consideration. Not only does the Dart GT provide the driver with a sense of excitement, but the sedan is also highly efficient. The 2.4-liter, MultiAir four-cylinder engine is able to pump out an impressive 184 horsepower. The best part is that the peppy sedan is still able to deliver over 30 mpg on the highway. Unlike the base version of the Dart, the GT version comes standard with a sports-tuned suspension system. While most drivers will choose the automatic transmission, true thrill seekers will love the excitement of the manual gearbox. Very few vehicles in the $20,000 price range offer this much fun.

Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 is a great vehicle for commuting to work and school. Although the 500 offers an extremely attractive price tag, it still provides plenty of neat features. Even the base trim comes standard with Bluetooth connectivity, traction control, and a quality audio system. With a starting price of less than $20,000, the Fiat 500 Turbo model proves to be an outstanding value. The turbocharged engine transforms the sporty hatchback into a legitimate hot rod. Despite the increased performance, the 500 Turbo manages to maintain a gas mileage rating of nearly 35 mpg on the open road.

Ram 1500

The Ram 1500 is currently one of the best bargains on the truck scene. This full-sized pickup truck offers great performance and a very satisfying ride quality. Equipped with the award-winning Pentastar engine, the Ram 1500 is able to tow over 7,200 pounds. Amazingly, the rugged truck promises to deliver at least 25 mpg while traveling on the freeway. While upgraded trim levels are available, budget-minded drivers will find the base trim to be more than suitable. A locking tailgate and a sprayed-in bed liner come as standard equipment. Prices start at around $25,000.

Dodge Grand Caravan

For over 30 years, the Dodge Grand Caravan has remained one of the most versatile family vehicles on the market. In fact, the Caravan has received more awards than any other minivan in history. When not carrying the family around, the Caravan can be transformed into a very capable hauling machine. A base model can be purchased for a little less than $21,000. Some of the noteworthy features include key-less entry, heated mirrors, anti-lock disc brakes, and third-row seating. Under the hood of the Caravan sits a powerful 3.6-liter, six-cylinder engine. When called upon, the muscular engine is able to generate a potent 283 horsepower.

Jeep Patriot

With a base sticker price of $16,395, the Jeep Patriot is a standout value in the SUV world. This well-built SUV is a great option for the drivers who do not need a large towing capacity. The base 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine provides just enough kick to keep the driver entertained. However, Patriot buyers can upgrade to a more powerful engine with no sacrifice in fuel efficiency. Expect to get a combined gas mileage of about 25 mpg. Although the Sport trim is the most affordable version, some drivers may prefer the enhanced luxury offered by the Latitude trim.

Chrysler 200

The newly-redesigned Chrysler 200 has leaped to the forefront of the family sedan segment. The sedan’s gorgeous exterior design has received a tremendous amount of praise from several reputable car magazines. However, the 200’s on-road performance deserves to be applauded as well. The new Tigershark four-cylinder engine delivers a strong performance in all driving situations. Due to the use of a new nine-speed transmission, the 200 is capable of delivering 36 mpg on the open road. The 200 was also chosen as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

Dodge Journey

Designed with an extremely roomy interior, the Dodge Journey is the ideal crossover vehicle for the drivers who are looking to save some cash. Whether the owner is taking a family trip to the mountains or dropping the kids off at school, the Dodge Journey is properly equipped to handle the job. Even the base version comes standard with a 4.3-inch touch-screen interface, dual-zone climate control, push-button ignition, in-floor storage, and a six-speaker audio system. Prices start at $19,995.
