J.D. Power Names 2020 Cadillac CT5 Highest Initial Quality in Segment

2020 Cadillac CT5, Greer, SC

Though it might be tempting to look at Cadillac’s newest entry as another pretty face, the high-performance Cadillac CT5 far more than just a gorgeous design with a sumptuous interior. According to industry juggernaut J.D. Power, the all-new 2020 CT5 is amongst the top automotive models in terms of initial performance. In order to gather the information needed for the Initial Quality Study, J.D. Power surveys new vehicle owners about any problems they encountered during the first 90 days of ownership. Results are compiled by individual vehicles and organized into segments. Vehicles with the most problems receive a lower ranking on the chart.

Based on the data gathered by J.D. Power from new owners, the 2020 Cadillac CT5 ranked as the best-performing premium midsize sedan in terms of initial quality. The XT5’s performance during its first year of availability is notable, as it is typical for brand-new models to experience more quality issues than older models.

The XT5 wasn’t the only Cadillac vehicle that demonstrated superior initial quality compared to its luxury peers. The Cadillac Escalade, CT6, and XT4 also topped the Initial Quality Study for their respective segments.

Given that few updates are expected for the 2021 CT5, we expect similar performance from the luxury sedan next year.

Chevrolet Silverado Hailed Among Easiest Vehicles to Repair

2020 Chevrolet Silverado - Greer, SC

With a fervent fan base of loyal owners, a reputation for top-tier reliability, and best-in-class V8 power, the Chevrolet Silverado is one of the most popular pickup trucks in America. As if the beloved truck needed any more resume padding, the Silverado family of vehicles recently received major kudos for its ease of maintainability.

Per U.S. News & World Report, the Chevrolet Silverado is among the top 10 Easiest Cars to Maintain and Repair. Easy maintainability is a big plus for truck owners, as having an easy-to-repair vehicle means you won’t experience long waits and expensive bills for parts due to slow supply chains or hard-to-find parts.

According to John M. Vincent and James MacPherson, writers for U.S. News & World Report, the length of the Silverado’s generations contribute to ease of maintenance. “The models aren’t fully redesigned as often as many vehicles, so there tends to be plenty of repair parts available,” the experts stated. They also credited the truck’s passionate, knowledgeable fan base, which makes it easy to get advice on caring for your truck. Other contributing factors to the Silverado’s high reliability include a spacious, uncomplicated engine compartment and common parts with other popular Chevy vehicles, such as the Tahoe and Suburban.
