The Chevrolet Silverado HD was ranked first in its segment in the 2016 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study. The results mark the second year in a row that the truck has been crowned king of the Large Heavy Duty Pickup segment in terms of dependability.
Now in its 27th year, the 2016 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study is based on responses from 33,560 original owners of 2013 model-year vehicles after three years of ownership. Conducted from October through December 2015, the study examines problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of 2013 model-year vehicles. Overall dependability is determined by the number of problems experienced per 100 vehicles (PP100), with a lower score reflecting higher quality. The study covers 177 specific problem symptoms grouped into eight major vehicle categories.
Chevrolet is leveraging the positive press associated with these findings in markets outside of the United States, including the Middle East.
“This is the second year in a row that the Silverado HD was the Large Heavy Duty Pickup segment leader. Being recognized for having the most dependable vehicles in these key segments demonstrates that Chevrolet is a brand Middle East customers can count on,” said Abdallah Madhoun, Regional Sales and Marketing Manager for Chevrolet, GM Middle East. “This award highlights how Chevrolet trucks and SUVs are delivering great performance, design, technology and value.”
