Silverado & Sierra Receive Quality Awards

June 19, 2013

GM's Chevrolet Silverado HD, GMC Sierra HD, Chevrolet Silverado LD, GMC Sierra LD, and Chevrolet Avalanche were all recognized by J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study.

According to the J.D. Power study, GMC ranked second overall in initial quality, climbing 10 spots, and was the top-ranked non-premium brand. Chevrolet also jumped 10 spots and ranked fifth overall and second among non-premium brands.

In addition to its trucks, other brands recognized in the study were the Camaro; Impala; Tahoe; Spark; Equinox; Cadillac Escalade and CTS; and Buick Encore, Enclave, and Regal.

The 2013 IQS is based on responses from more than 80,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2013 model year vehicles surveyed at 90 days of ownership.  The study was redesigned for 2013 and provides manufacturers with information they can use to quickly identify problems and drive improvement.
