DETROIT – The GMC Sierra 1500 full-size light-duty pickup, Yukon full-size SUV and Terrain compact SUV ranked highest in their respective segments in the 2015 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study. The GMC brand gained six spots, moving up to No. 10 overall (in a tie).
The 2015 study tracks 2012 model year vehicles in the third year of ownership.
Both the Sierra 1500 and Yukon also achieved the highest score in their segments in the 2014 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study.
“The momentum continues at GMC with this recognition,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC Sales and Marketing. “We expect all of our vehicles to perform at the highest level every time a customer gets behind the wheel and this achievement validates our commitment to dependability and reliability.”
GMC has manufactured trucks since 1902, with innovation and engineering excellence built into all GMC vehicles. The brand is evolving to offer more fuel-efficient trucks and crossovers, including the Terrain small SUV and Acadia crossover. GMC’s highest-volume vehicle, the Sierra pickup, is the most powerful light-duty pickup on the market, and the first full-size pickup to receive the highest-possible five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety since the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration changed its New Car Assessment Program for the 2011 model year.
