The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Dare To Indulge You Just A Bit More

Tuesday, October 5th, 2021

The Chevrolet company is preparing to revamp their Tahoe and Suburban SUVs for their 2022 model, but don’t worry, they aren’t throwing out the baby with the bath water. Instead, the automaker is simply making their formula more agreeable to a larger crowd, and they’re doing this by making their 6.2-L V8 engine more available. While this motor was previously reserved as the standard engine on the top-ranking High Country trim, and not even an option on the others, it’s now being unlocked on the RST, Z71, and Premier levels. Now more buyers will get to enjoy a thrilling ride with the powertrains output of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

Last month (September 10th), we discussed that this engine might require additional options, with the exclusion of the Premier. The Premier model with the V8 motor has a standalone option. At the same time, RST buyers will need to get the Sport Performance Package, while buyers of the Z71 will have to get either the Z71 Off-Road Package or mixture of packages such as Off-Road Performance, Off-Road Capability, Max Trailering, and Luxury. 

On the Z71 trim, the new electronic limited-slip differential is included in the Off-Road Performance Package, which results in better responsiveness from the rear wheels while driving when the roads are slippery. Those who opt for this package also means that they’ll get the Max Trailering and Luxury Packages too.

The availability of other two engine options in the lineup don’t change, specifically the 5.3-liter V8 with 355 hp and 383 lb-ft, and the 3.0-liter diesel with 277 hp and 460 lb-ft.

Inhouse, beginning with the LT model and up, the gauge cluster expands to a fully digital 12-3 inch display with four preset configurations. Google Automotive has been implemented into the vehicle systems for better integration of particular apps and services. This involves voice commands, which means without plugging in his or her phone, passengers can use Google Assistnt’s voice control to make changes, such as with the stereo volume, the radio stations, or the climate control. The 10.2-inch infotainment touchscreen is brought over, but it will show up to 13 different camera angles when matched with a trailer that it’s compatible with, and a suitable Trailering package. If connected, these images include a a rear trailer view, picture-in-picture side view, and the scene inside a trailer

As part of the brand’s Safety Assist Suite, all trims are geared with Front and Rear Park Assist and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It also comes with five surplus driver assist technologies, and even Buckle to Drive. There are five new designs available on particular trims, while each Tahoe and Suburban have three new colors for buyers to select from: Auburn Metallic, Dark Ash Metallic, and Evergreen Gray Metallic.

It’s worth noting that ordering some of these options might be contingent on the current happenings regarding the chip shortage, possibly having you faced with either lessening some items off your shopping list or just being patient. The 2022 Tahoe and Suburban will begin their production at General Motors Arlington, Texas facility in October, with pricing being announced at a later date.

The 2022 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban Set The Standard For Full-Size SUVs

Friday, September 10th, 2021

New Features For 2022

As with many automakers, the Chevrolet company performed a few nips and tucks on their new vehicles, particularly the upcoming Tahoe SUV and its extended Suburban sibling. Improvements that have been made the inside (all but base LS model) include a new 12-inch digital gauge display fenced in by a conventional analog tacho- and speedometer. These trims also receive a standard navigation system from the 10.2-inch central infotainment touchscreen. Additional standard features include Lane-Keeping Assist and parking sensors. At the same time, Reverse Automatic Braking is included in the high-ranking trims’ Enhanced Display and Alert package. Lastly, the 6.2-liter V8 option stretches to the ZR1, RST and Premier models, but with the exclusion of the Premier, you’ll need to select one or more packages.

Size Increase and Cargo Capacity

Last year, parent company, General Motors gave their full-size SUVs a complete revamp after nearly thirty years. These enhancements included a highly-anticipated switch to the independent rear suspension, which in turn allowed for extra interior space and cargo capacity. The 2022 Tahoe increased its overall length by 6.7 inches, along with 4.9 inches of its wheelbase. Meanwhile, the Suburban added 1.3 inches to its length and an incredible 4.1 inches to its wheelbase.

The Tahoe’s interior gains 3 inches of legroom in the second row, and a surplus of 10.1 inches in the third row partly due to the lower floor. The Surban also increases its space by a bit over 2 inches of legroom in each row.

Cargo space also made great improvements. In the Tahoe SUV, cargo measurements have increased by 10.2 cubic feet (specifically 25.5 cubes), while the Suburban increased its space by 2.2 cubic feet (overall 41.5 cubes).

Performance and Towing Specifications

There are three different engine types to pick for the 2022 Tahoe and Suburban. The entry-level motor is a naturally aspirated 5.3-liter V8, which has an output of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. It’s matched with a 10-speed automatic transmission and has an available rear-wheel-drive (RWD) or four-wheel-drive (4WD).

Optional on the Z71, RST, Premier and High Country models is another naturally aspirated V8, but a 6.2-liter. It musters up 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. As with the 5.3-liter, it includes the same type of automatic and drive systems.

Additionally, the automaker is offering a unique diesel 3.0-liter inline-six engine, which is only one like in its class. It has an output of 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and also shares the 10-speed automatic.

Towing capacities range from 7,500 and 8,000 lbs subject to body style, engine, and drivetrain. The tow package also increases capacity with each model, but only by a small margin.

Available Features

Basic gear that you’ll find in the beloved Chevrolet SUVs are the 5.3-liter V8, engine and transmission coolers, and a limited-slip differential. External features involve 18-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors, running boards, rear parking sensors, LED headlights and remote start. Internal gadgets encompass three-zone climate control, eight-way power driver seat and six-way power passenger seat, the 10-inch infotainment screen, 4.2-inch screen in the instrument cluster, a six-speaker sound system, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, driver assist features.

On higher trims, like the Z71, drivers get to revel in the charming and exclusive front fascia and bumper, which provides the car with a more aggressive appearance. It also includes hill-descent control, 20-inch wheels, all-terrain tires and a skid plate. Then, the luxurious High Country comes with the 6.2-liter V8, magnetic and air suspension, 22-inch wheels, 360-degree cameras, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring and lane keep assist, rear camera mirror, leather heated and cooled front seats, heated steering wheel, heated second-row seats, power-folding rear seats, a large instrument panel screen and head-up display, 10-speaker Bose sound system, and wireless phone charging.

On top of this, there are optional towing assist on both SUVs, which have cameras that have up to nine different views for maneuvering and monitoring one’s trailer. They are standard with a trailer guidance feature along with a rear-view camera. There’s even an app on the infotainment system that allows users to store information about their trailer and perform various checks as they hook up the motor home.

Safety and Driver Assist Features

At last, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban advocate for safety as they provide owners with an array of technologies, such as the standard automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, front and rear parking sensors, automatic high-beam headlights, and a rear-seat reminder. Optional technologies (standard on higher trims) include reverse automatic emergency braking, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, parking sensors and adaptive cruise control.

The 2021 Tahoe and Suburban Model Are All The Rage Among Chevrolet Buyers

Wednesday, March 24th, 2021

The New Kids On The Block 

The latest and greatest 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe, as well as the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban full-size SUVs are selling like hotcakes on the dealership lots, especially with one particular trim level that seems to be getting all the buzz.

Last month, the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban RST trim level only stayed on dealership lots for an average of 18 days, which is considered pretty darn well in the U.S market, since the typical time period for a car’s stay would be around 60 days. Obviously, this demand is considered to be outrageously good…and now on a first-come-first-serve sort of basis. Regarding the RST model, this demand is even greater.

Chevrolet’s RST trim is comparable to that of their LT that it’s built upon, however, its design has a bit more edge and sports the Rally Street Truck (RST) title. The automaker responded to the popularity and overall demand from its customers for a more street-racer style by tacking on 22-inch High Gloss Black painted wheels as a standard, as well as a distinctive front fascia involving a black icy finish on the grille, black on black-chrome trim (for the exterior) and a range of RST-exclusive features in-house, with divergent stitching.

Both the Tahoe and Suburban were fully overhauled for this model year, and are currently in the initial stages of their 5th and twelve generation actions, in that order. The Suburban SUV sets the record for being the longest continually used nameplate, as it was first initiated in the market by 1935. The two trucks are essentially twins, with the exception that the Suburban is 15 inches longer than the Tahoe at 225.7 inches.

For both models, buyers have the choice of getting the 5.3L V8 L84 gasoline engine from the EcoTec3 group, which has an incredible output of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. The second option is the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbo-diesel Duramax, which produces a lesser 277 horsepower but an improved 460 lb-ft of torque. Both of these engines team up with the brand’s Hydra-Matic 10L80 10-speed automatic transmission. One also has the option of rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and four-wheel-drive (4WD).

Both SUVs have accomplished strong sales and growth in North America, particularly in the fourth quarter of 2020 by over 30 percent. The transition to the new generation earlier that year, in addition to a market slump of many businesses due to the coronavirus pandemic, resulted in sales dropping considerably for a year, such as with the Tahoe at 88,238 and Suburban at 37,636, which will certainly see a resurgence in 2021.

The Chevrolet RST has a starting price of $58,395, (plus destination fee) for RWDs equipped with the 5.3L V8 engine. The mirroring Suburban RST has a starting price of 61,095, (plus destination fee).

2021 Chevrolet Tahoe Shows Off Its Diesel Power

Friday, December 18th, 2020

Chevrolet Tahoe’s New Diesel Options

In North America, diesel engines usually aren’t considered the most appealing engine option and this was especially true in the 1970s. During this time, General Motors made the transition from a gas V-8 engine to a diesel for its (now deceased) Oldsmobile brand. These engines resulted in miserable reliability issues, mainly involving head bolts that had too much pressure from the diesel compression.

Many years later (in 2001) the American automaker made the introduction of its powerful and tough Duramax diesel V-8 for its heavy-duty truck, which certainly made up for Olddie’s failure. Even more fascinating is the recent installment of light-duty Duramax inline-six on trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, and gradually on all of the company’s remodeled full-sized SUVs, one of them being the 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe.

The new lake-named vehicle will be sporting a turbocharged 3.0-liter Duramax, one out of the three available engines. Base models already have an impressive boost with 355 horsepower on a 5.3-liter V-8, while the top-tier High Country is geared up by a standard 6.2-liter with 420 horsepower. The diesel will have 277 horsepower, which is the least of the group, however, it’s 460 lb-ft of torque matches the 6.2’s engine.

Oftentimes, diesel engines come at a heftier cost, one of the reasons being that they integrate pricy exhaust-treatment systems keep their sootier emissions composed, however, that won’t be the case this time around. High Country trims, for example, include a $1500 credit as opposed to the bigger V-8. Lesser models only have a $995 line item and the most affordable Tahoe with the Duramax has a starting price of $53,295, (plus destination fee). At the same time, the inclusive High Country model starts at $69,395, (plus destination fee). Of course, these prices don’t take into account the optional equipment.

Great torque output is usually an implication for massive towing capabilities. The 3.0-liter Duramax rates the least weight out of the Tahoe’s powertrains, but it’s 8200 lb rating is still strong and tough enough to make an impact. 

Choosing the Duramax won’t significantly change the driving behavior of the SUV. According to one car reviewer, their Tahoe model that was paired with a standard 10-speed automatic transmission made smooth and swift shuffles and reached 60 mph in 7.8 seconds; 5.8-liter powered models were only a second faster, and 6.2’s being the fastest.

The new diesel engine option isn’t just powerful, it’s also highly capable during the winter months. Unlike older engines, the 3.0-liter makes use of a fresh coolant-control system to be able to endure freezing temperatures. The Duramax’s computer manages flow to the head, engine block, oil, transmission cooler, cabin heater, cooler, as well as low and high-pressure exhaust-gas recirculation coolers. This enables the engine to send warm coolant to the cabin heater and with necessary haste. 

As one should expect with any big and bad SUV of General Motors, the diesel Tahoe has an independent rear suspension, which allows passengers to have their own personal space and also betters the quality of the ride as opposed to the previous solid-rear-axle system. On top of this, the interior quality and design have received a significant upgrade both aesthetically and comfort-wise. However, nothing compares to the car’s new and efficient diesel engine.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

The 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe has class-leading cargo space, incredible engine options, advanced technologies, and a great ability to accommodate and please passengers. Those who are interested in this vehicle can take a sneak peek at Miami Lakes Automall, we sell a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles like the Tahoe, and at a variety of different prices and variations.

Chevrolet Earns Three Nominations For the 2021 North American Utility of the Year Award

Monday, October 5th, 2020
Sub Miami Lakes Automall

The 2021 North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year (NACTOY) Awards have announced the 27 semifinalists including the massively popular 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer, the revamped Chevrolet Tahoe, and the iconic Chevrolet Suburban. These are just three of the choices among the 27, but all can earn the Utility of the Year award. The awards first began in 1994 and represents a way for automotive manufacturers to celebrate the most popular vehicles each year. The criteria to win requires offering a standout performance in innovation, design, safety, performance driver satisfaction, value, and technology. Last year, Chevrolet was awarded the Car of the Year award for the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The Chevrolet brand has also won for the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt for Car of the Year as well. This year’s show has been pushed back, however, but the details have been revealed as to when it will go on, roughly a year from now.

2021 NAIAS Show Moved Back

A jury of 50 independent journalists has lowered the finalists count and each vehicle will be fully vetted in the coming months ahead. The announcement of the winners will take place at the 2021 North American International Auto Show that has been pushed back till September 28th through October 9th, 2021. The event will take place in Detroit, Michigan. This is not the only auto show event that has been pushed back due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Los Angeles Auto Show has been pushed back to May 2021 and the New York International Auto Show has moved to April 2021. This means there will be a massive 33-month gap between the last auto show that was held back in January 2019. The NAIAS will continue at the TCF Center for the next three years and keep its later date. 

Changing of the Guard

The landscape of the automotive industry has changed in favor of SUV growth. According to IHS Markit, a company that offers critical research and information for various companies, the growth of SUVs accounts for 47.4% of U.S. sales last year. While that number was quite high in 2019, the figure could be even higher in 2020. Sedans saw a fall down to as low as 22%, unfortunately for customers who embrace driving a car. The 2021 NACTOY award nominees for the sedans this year only include some of the sleekest and stylish car options. 

“The breadth of choices in the SUV category from style to powertrain is really impressive,” said NACTOY Secretary Gary Vasilash, an industry veteran who is editor-in-chief of AutoBeat.

Look Out For More Innovation

Of course, Chevrolet is looking forward to improving its own lineup of SUVs. The crop of the newest Chevrolet SUV lineup carries the newest infotainment and safety technology that helped earned this nomination. Chevy is wise to invest more high-tech and push ahead to new EV technology. The state of California has announced the prohibition of any new, gas-powered cars in just over 14 years from now. By 2035, the landscape of vehicles will look quite different. Drivers looking for a smart pick to drive will take a closer look at the current new Chevrolet inventory here at Miami Lakes Automall.

2021 Chevrolet Suburban vs. Tahoe: Not As Similar As You Think

Friday, June 12th, 2020

 

At first glance, the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe come across as your automobile version of Mary-Kate and Ashely, which in some ways they are, especially when it comes to their platform, gear, trim levels, and much more. So what makes then fraternal? First, let’s explore a bit more about what makes them similar. 

Similar Features

The two 2021 Chevy trucks both tag along with the same GM T1 type of structure, have a new multilink rear suspension and have the same powertrain lineup available, the last-mentioned comes with the 5.3L V8 L84 on lower trims and with 6.2L V8 L87 on higher trims. To get a better understanding of how incredible these engines are, the 5.3L boosts a spirted 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque, while the 6.2L pushes an even more energetic and rocket-launching power of 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The “twins” also give shoppers the option of getting the turbodiesel 3.0L I6 LM2 Duramax. As a standard, all three engines can be paired up with the General Motors 10-speed automatic transmission for both 2021 trucks, and are offered with RWD and 4WD.

Going past the mechanics, the Suburban and Tahoe offer the exact trim levels, arranged from base to most exclusive: LS, LT, Z71, RST, Premier, and High Country; You’ll also find that equipment and options are comparable.

In terms of standard infotainment features, the dynamic duo both come with a 10-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Andriod Auto, as well as a 6-speaker audio system. Other cool gadgets the 2021 SUVs also share include premium cloth seating, tri-zone automatic climate control, remote engine start, and power front seats.

Different Features

Now let’s get into what’s fraternal. The best way to describe what makes the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban and 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe different is simply their sizes. The Suburban is pretty much a longer doppelganger of the Tahoe, its wheelbase is longer with 13.2 inches as well as its overall length with 15 inches. 

One makes the right assumption that these models have different interior specs due to their different lengths, however, they do offer pretty much the same quantity of room for passengers.

All of this extra metal will certainly transition into the available cargo room. Behind the first row, the Suburban offers an additional 22-cubic-feet of storage space, an added 20 behind the second row, and 16 behind the third row.

The additional space metal contributes to the difference in price, as the 2021 Chevrolet Suburban adds on an extra $2,700 for its identical trim level to its starting prices similar to the 2021 Tahoe.

Lastly, an infotainment feature that the Suburban keeps for itself is the GM subscription-based On Star connected services, including 4G LTE integration with built-in Wi-Fi.

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

One more similarity that the 2021 Suburban and 2021 Tahoe have in common is that they haven’t been released to dealerships yet, however, Miami Lakes Automall currently has a wide selection of both SUVs at 2020 models, and in a variety of different trims.

Chevy Introduces New Special Edition Packages

Wednesday, August 29th, 2018
2019 Chevy Suburban Miami Lakes Automall

Chevrolet, a brand that has listened to the feedback from consumers, is announcing some additions to their vehicle stock. Chevy will increase the availability of the 6.2-Liter V8 engine within its full-size SUV lineup with the debut of the 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban Premier Plus special editions. The 6.2-Liter V8 first arrived in the Chevy full-size SUV lineup on the 2018 Tahoe RST 6.2-Liter Performance Package. Chevy has always been about building vehicles their customers will want. These packages show us those changes are evident in the latest All Premier Plus edition Chevy full-size SUVs. Chevy also announced that customers can get their hands on the RST Premier models with the optional 6.2-Liter Performance Package. These vehicles include Magnetic Ride Control with performance calibration and a Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission.

“Our customers have shown strong demand for both Tahoe and Suburban with the 6.2-Liter V8 option. Thirty-six percent of all Chevy full-size SUV special edition models are now sold with this engine. Premier Plus gives both Suburban and Tahoe customers another option to decide from with additional premium touches.” -Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet Trucks Marketing & Advertising.

More on the Chevy Special Editions

The 2019 Chevy Tahoe and 2019 Chevy Suburban Premier Plus editions feature a fabulously rich interior with ventilated black and mahogany-colored leather-appointed front seats (that also include heating features) in surrounding Jet Black trim. This luxurious two-tone interior and the 22-inch polished wheels debut with this new package in Chevy’s full-size SUV lineup. The Special Edition trims carry gold Chevrolet  “bowtie” logos, chrome nameplate badging, a heads-up display, an 8-inch diagonal cluster, cross rails, chrome power steps, exhaust tips and a Chevrolet-branded cargo organizer. Connectivity is provided by a standard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and the Premier Plus package includes a 12-month data plan.

Chevy has implemented new features for 2019, including a 10-speed automatic transmission to provide smaller steps between each ratio to maximize engine power under acceleration. A broad 7.39 overall gear ratio spread and lower numerical top gear ratio, the transmission also decreases engine revolutions at highway speeds and this conserses gas as less work equals less energy consumed. Included is the Magnetic Ride Control,an active suspension that tracks the road to account for every ding along the way every millisecond, triggering damping changes in the electronically controlled shock absorbers in as few as 10-15 milliseconds. As a result, the suspension presents improved body-motion control during cornering and a more pleasant ride while cruising.

The available 6.2-Liter V8 was built to be strong and modern, hitting 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. The engine delivers three state-of-the-art technologies. These technologies include direct injection, Active Fuel Management, and continuously variable valve timing — making the most of torque, power and efficiency across a wide range of operating conditions. Chevy has thought of everything to make the ride even better with their vehicles. The result? Kelley Blue Book lists the Chevy Tahoe as one of these 5-Year      Cost to Own Award winners. That means owners will be happy with their experience driving one.

2019 Chevy Premier Plus Pricing

The 2019 Chevrolet Tahoe Premier Plus, boasting a Best-in-class V8 highway fuel economy, starts at $74,100  MSRP (plus destination fee), while the 2019 Chevrolet Suburban Premier Plus will start at $76,900 MSRP (plus destination fee). The 2019 Tahoe and Suburban Premier Plus are set to start production in August 2018. For those who want to get their hands on the latest Chevy vehicles, there’s one place to make that happen.

With that in mind, think more power and space provided incase the Chevy Traverse isn’t spacious enough for you.

Chevy Provides Enough Size For Any Road Trip

Chevy provides a lot of space for drivers and passengers. The 2018 Chevy Traverse boasts three rows of seats and depending on the second-row seat configuration (bench seat or captain’s chairs) there is seating for seven or eight people. Designed to keep all passengers comfortable, the Traverse offers best-in-class legroom for third-row passengers. And with the Traverse’s best-in-class maximum cargo space of 98.2 cubic feet, there’s plenty of room to keep clutter out of the passenger area. Also, so passengers don’t get too cold or too hot in the backseat, the Traverse has three-zone climate control so everyone can enjoy the temperature that is right for them.

If you thought you needed a minivan, and the Traverse isn’t big enough, the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe might be. With available seven or eight passenger seating, depending on the options selected, the Chevy Tahoe is very comfortable for you and your family. The standard setup on the Chevy Tahoe seats eight passengers with an included second-row 60/40 split-bench seat and a 60/40 split-bench third-row seat. The 2018 Chevy Tahoe is also available with second-row bucket seats, and that option reduces the vehicle’s seating capacity to seven people. If both rows of the rear seats are folded down, consumers get 15.3 cubic feet of cargo room, 51.7 cubic feet with the third row down and owners can make use of 94.7 cu. ft. of cargo space when all rows are down.

10 Chevy Models Ranked in Top Three in J.D. Power Dependability Study

Monday, February 19th, 2018

Miami-Lakes-Chevy-jd-power-dependability-study

There’s a lot of different factors consumers consider before making a vehicle purchase, and one factor that is important to almost all consumers is dependability, so why not go with a Chevy model? J.D. Power recently released the results from the 2018 Dependability Study and Chevy did AWESOME.

Chevrolet (tied with Hyundai) was ranked as the sixth most dependable brand, four Chevy models were ranked most dependable in their class and six other Chevy models ranked in the top three of their class – that’s extremely impressive.

Chevy Dependability

Overall, Chevy had 124 problems per 100 cars, which made it (and Hyundai) the sixth best ranked brand out of 31 brands and Chevy had more top three segment rankings in this year’s study than any other automaker.

In individual car segments four Chevy models had the lowest number of problems per 100 cars, and only one other brand had four models with the best score in their classes. The Chevy Silverado ranked best in the light-duty truck segment; the Chevy Equinox ranked best in the compact SUV segment; the Chevy Traverse ranked best in the midsize SUV segment; and the Chevy Malibu ranked best in the midsize car segment.

Also, six Chevy models finished top three in their segment and they include the Chevy Sonic (small car), Chevy Camaro (midsize sporty car), Chevy Impala (large car), Chevy Trax (small SUV), Chevy Tahoe (large SUV) and Chevy Silverado HD (heavy-duty truck).

What’s special about Chevy’s high dependability scores is that Chevy doesn’t just focus on creating similar variations of their products, but they produce dependable models in 10 of the 14 possible segments (6 segments only look at luxury brands).

J.D. Power Dependability Study

J.D. Power conducts a number of customer surveys every year and for the dependability study, owners are asked about the number of problems their three-year-old (2015 model year) vehicle has. That data is then translated into problems per 100 cars, and the vehicles and brands with the lowest number of problems per cars are the ones ranked highest. The dependability study is one of the major automotive J.D. Power studies because it provides consumers with an idea of how their car experience might be in the long run, rather than the first year or first few months of ownership.
