2016 Camaro Awarded Again

2016 Chevrolet Camaro improved 51 points to lead the competitive Midsize Sporty Car segment in the 2016 J.D. Power APEAL study.

DETROIT – Demonstrating its commitment to designing quality vehicles that meet consumer needs, General Motors received six segment-level awards — the most of any automaker — in the 2016 J.D. Power U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) study released today.

This follows GM’s leadership in the J.D. Power 2016 Vehicle Dependability Study and the J.D. Power 2016 Initial Quality Study, where it had the most models ranked highest in segment.

Through customer surveys, the APEAL Study examines how gratifying a new vehicle is to own and drive. Owners evaluate their vehicle across 77 attributes that make up an overall brand score measured on a 1,000-point scale.

“These awards are a great recognition of the progress we are making in the design and development of our vehicles,” said Tony Francavilla, General Motors vice president of quality. “We realize that every touch point, whether it is the vehicle’s appeal, initial quality or long-term durability, impacts our ability to earn customers for life.”

In addition to earning the most segment-level awards, GM also earned the most top-three places.
