Four Chevrolet vehicles have been ranked at the top of their segment in the 2016 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, proving once again that when vehicle customers want reliability, their best bet is to go with Chevy.
The award-winning models included the following:
Camaro in the Midsize Sporty Car segment for the 4th consecutive year
Malibu in the Midsize Car segment for the 2nd consecutive year
Silverado HD in the Large Heavy Duty Pickup segment for the 2nd consecutive year
Equinox in the Compact SUV segment
In addition, two other Chevrolet models were ranked in the top three of their respective segment; the Tahoe was ranked second in the Large SUV segment and the Silverado was ranked third in the Large Light Duty Pickup segment.
The study is based on problems reported in the last year by the original owners of three-year-old vehicles. The fewer problems were noted, the higher the model was ranked. If you like driving cars, SUVs, or trucks that have fewer problems than most others in the industry, then you’ll love our lineup at Stalker Chevrolet!
The latest 2014 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study ranked the Chevy Malibu, Suburban*, and Silverado HD highest in their respective segments. For the Chevrolet Silverado HD this marks the second straight year they have been awarded that honor in the Large heavy Duty Pickup segment.
You may hear about the rankings of the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study (IQS) each year, but you probably wonder what goes into those rankings. Two years ago the J.D. Power Initial Quality Study was redesigned to its current format. The 2014 IQS is based on survey responses from more than 86,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2014 model year vehicles. These owners are surveyed within 90 days of ownership.
Malibu, Suburban, and Silverado HD may have ranked highest in their segments, but Chevrolet also had three more top three finishers, including Camaro, Equinox, and Tahoe.
Brian Sweeney, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet stated, “Our primary focus at Chevrolet is on the customer, and building quality products is top priority for keeping that focus.”
We’re proud to be part of a brand that continues to provide vehicles that people love to drive. And Chevrolet keeps revamping an already impressive lineup. Over the past three years Chevy has revamped roughly 9 vehicles and added 3 more. That’s a trend we want to see continue.
