DETROIT – J.D. Power and Associates ranked the Chevrolet Camaro the industry’s most dependable midsize sporty car and the Chevrolet Tahoe as the most dependable large crossover/SUV in its 2013 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study.
The J.D. Power and Associates study tracked reliability during the third year of the ownership on 2010 model year vehicles. The fifth-generation Camaro took the highest ranking in its segment during its first year on the market.
“Receiving such a prestigious dependability award the first year Camaro was introduced demonstrates our commitment to provide customers with the best possible ownership experience,” said Alicia Boler-Davis, vice president General Motors Global Quality and U.S. Customer Experience. “Together with Tahoe leading its segment, this is another example of our focus on creating life-long customers.”
Introduced in late 2009 as 2010 model, the fifth-generation Camaro has outsold its closest competitor for the past three years. Camaro is also helping to bring new buyers to Chevrolet – four in 10 Camaro retail buyers traded in a non-GM car at the time of purchase.
“We believe the Camaro is a great example of how we want to do business at Chevrolet by delivering incredible design, impressive performance, and class-leading ownership experiences,” said Chris Perry, U.S. vice president, Chevrolet Marketing. “That approach has made Camaro a success here in the United States, and it has helped Chevrolet become the fastest-growing global automotive brand in the world.”
The Chevrolet Tahoe is the bestselling full-size SUV, with space for the kids and dogs and the ability to tow up to 8,500 pounds. Tahoe's capability has helped make it a favorite of active families.
In 2012, Chevrolet sold more than 4.95 million cars worldwide, setting a global sales record for the brand.
Founded in 1911 in Detroit, Chevrolet is now one of the world's largest car brands, doing business in more than 140 countries and selling more than 4.5 million cars and trucks a year.
