The results of the latest J.D. Power and Associates Initial Quality Study are in, and several General Motors vehicles managed to win out in their respective segments over their rivals. The Cadillac Escalade was one of those vehicles, taking home the award for topping the large premium crossover/SUV segment for the second year in a row, despite the age of the current model.
Chevrolet also had a winner in the Tahoe SUV, which scored marks 9 percent above the large crossover/SUV segment. Second place in the segment went to the GMC Yukon, while third went to the Suburban. If anything, the results show great consistency in their build quality. There’s also the HHR, with a win in the compact multi-purpose vehicle segment. Ironically, the funky five-door is being discontinued. Also of note from Chevy was the Camaro, which took second in the midsized sports car segment, and the Avalanche, which took third in the large pickup segment.
