FCA Leads Two AutoPacific Satisfaction Awards

by David Zatz on

The Jeep® Grand Cherokee was the highest ranking midsize SUV for the fifth consecutive year in AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards.  Dodge Challenger also returns for the second time in three years as leader of the “Sporty Car” segment.


The survey taps 66,000 owners of 2015 vehicles, using 50 attributes, and giving awards in 12 car and 15 truck/SUV categories.  GM , Ford, and Hyundai-Kia had more winning entries than FCA. The Toyota brand was absent, though Lexus garnered two “top spots” —  one more than either BMW or Mercedes. GMC had two vehicles in top spots but managed to collect the overall award for popular brands.
