GMC Yukon Wins a 2016 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Honour

Dependability is a top need for families. Not only do family haulers need the space and power to get parents and kids everywhere they need to go, but having a vehicle with minimal needs for service is important. Fortunately there is the GMC Yukon. This vehicle recently won the 2016 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability award in the full-size SUV segment, pushing the GMC brand as a whole into fifth place overall.

J.D. Power Dependability Study Criteria

GMC Named Most Refined Brand by Kelley Blue BookThe J.D. Power Dependability study looks at three-year-old vehicles and evaluates them over 12 months. They are judged how every piece of the vehicle functions by looking at repair visits and maintenance needs in multiple areas. The study looks at aspects of the whole vehicle such as features and control functions; engine, transmission and other mechanical pieces; climate controls and effectiveness; entertainment and navigation systems; and handling and driving, just to name a few.

For this study, the 2013 GMC Yukon was put through its paces and performed admirably. The GMC Yukon wins a 2016 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability honour for having the fewest mechanical issues in its class. This full-size SUV also took above average reviews on the quality of its powertrain and the accessibility and usefulness of its features. That means that families enjoying a Yukon were able to take full advantage of interactive and user-friendly infotainment features like rear entertainment screens and a responsive infotainment system.

What Makes the GMC Yukon Great for Families?

With room for up to eight passengers and power for towing a boat or trailer besides, the 2013 GMC Yukon offers reliable, dependable power the family can take anywhere. This is the second year that the GMC Yukon has received the J.D. Power Dependability Award, and we anticipate that it will continue to hold a top pace in its class into the future. New SUV shoppers looking at the current 2016 GMC Yukon will be able to enjoy that same dependability.

Other General Motors brands also shone in the 2016 J.D. Power study. Four Chevy models received segment awards, and the Buick Verano was named the most dependable vehicle in this study. To learn more about the GMC Yukon or GMC dependability, feel free to stop by Craig Dunn Motor City today.
