Five Chevrolets lead segments in J.D. Power ratings
The Chevrolet Silverado topped the full-size truck ladder in the latest J.D. Power 2016 U.S. Initial Quality Study (IQS).
Five Chevrolet vehicles led their segments in the J.D. Power 2016 Initial Quality Study.
No other brand has more J.D. Power Initial Quality awards than Chevrolet — for the fourth consecutive year.
This follows the brand’s strong showing in the 2016 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, where Chevrolet also had more models ranked highest in its segments than any other brand.
Chevrolet’s focus on the customer has fueled a three per cent gain in retail sales for the first five months of 2016.
In the same period, Chevrolet’s share of the retail sales grew 0.6 percentage points, making Chevrolet the fastest growing full-line brand in the industry.
Chevrolet segment awards in the 2016 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study include:
- Silverado swept the full-size truck categories, with the Silverado 1500 receiving the top marks for light-duty trucks and the Silverado HD receiving the top marks for heavy-duty trucks.
- Equinox led the compact SUV segment (in a tie), with study results that were 15 points better than the segment average.
- Tahoe lead the large SUV segment, with study results that were 19 points above the segment average.
- Finally, the Spark dominated the city car segment, with study results that were 48 points higher than the segment average.
The study, now in its 30th year, examines problems experienced by vehicle owners during the first 90 days of ownership.
Initial quality is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality.
