Silverado, Super Duty Take Top Spot in J.D. Power IQS Rankings

Koreans Make Big Move Up, Land Rover, Jeep Still Near Bottom

Jun 17, 2015
The closely watched barometer of new vehicle quality, the J.D. Power Initial Quality Survey (IQS) is out today, with some major changes to the established pattern over the last few years. Korean brands Kia and Hyundai, once regarded as the bargain basement bottom-feeders of the industry, ranked second and fourth, respectively. Porsche received the highest overall rating with only 80 problems per 100 vehicles (PPV) on average. Chevrolet, Toyota, Ford and Ram all ranked above the industry average of 112 PPV. Unfortunately, SUV brands Land Rover and Jeep continued to languish toward the bottom of the list, with Land rover getting 134 PPV and Jeep getting 141 PPV.
In terms of individual segments, the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 took first place in the Large Light Duty Pickup segment, and the Ford Super Duty taking the top spot among HD trucks (both models were below the industry average). For midsize pickups, the Toyota Tacoma took the top spot. Toyota also got the top ranking for Large SUV with the Sequoia. In the Large Premium SUV segment, the Infiniti QX80 edged out the Mercedes-Benz GL. The Infiniti QX70 also took the top spot for the Midsize Premium SUV segment. The Chevrolet Equinox took the top spot among in the Compact SUV class, while the Porsche Macan won the Compact Premium SUV segment. The other closely watched J.D. Power study is the vehicle dependability study, which measures reported quality issues over the first three years of ownership.
