DETROIT – Cadillac improved to third place among automakers and two of its nameplates ranked highest in their respective segments in the 2014 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study.
The study rates vehicle problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of 3-year-old, or 2011 model year, vehicles.
Escalade received the highest dependability award in the Large Premium CUV segment. Cadillac’s prior large sedan, called DTS, ranked highest in a tie in the Large Premium Car segment.
“Excellent quality and lasting value are central expectations for luxury consumers,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing officer, Global Cadillac. “This is a focus as we continue the ongoing elevation of the Cadillac brand.”
Cadillac improved significantly in the study, overtaking 11 brands to rank third industrywide.
Escalade moves to its next-generation this spring with an all-new 2015 model.
