Dodge, Fiat Models Receive J.D. Power APEAL Awards

2013 Dodge Charger(2013 Dodge Charger Shown Right)

The 2013 Dodge Charger and Fiat 500 lead their segments in J.D. Power’s 2013 U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) Study™, while the Ram Truck brand ranks as the highest non-premium brand in the industry.

The APEAL Study measures how gratifying a new vehicle is to own and drive, based on customer evaluations of 77 vehicle attributes of new 2013 model year vehicles. Customers are surveyed after 90 days of ownership at the same time as J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study (IQS). According to J.D. Power, the most appealing vehicles have greater owner loyalty, command higher transaction prices and spend less time on dealer lots before purchase.

“The vehicle characteristics measured in the APEAL study are just as relevant to owners’ overall quality impressions as the issues identified in the IQS survey,” Doug Betts, Senior Vice President – Quality, Chrysler Group LLC said. “A vehicle’s subjective appeal is what really sets it apart from the competition and strengthens a customer’s willingness to recommend their car or truck. We are constantly investing in product upgrades to improve all aspects of quality and customer satisfaction.”

This is the third consecutive year the Dodge Charger has led its segment in the APEAL Study. The Chrysler 300 ranked third in the segment in the study.

The Fiat 500 led the City Car segment.

The Ram Truck brand was the highest ranking non-premium brand in the APEAL Study. Premium brands traditionally rank higher in the APEAL study and hold the top 10 rank position in this year’s study.
