Chrysler, Jeep® Most Improved Brands in J.D. Power 2016 U.S. Initial Quality StudySM (IQS)

Dodge Challenger, Chrysler Town & Country Lead Their Segments

  • Chrysler and Jeep® most improved brands in initial quality
  • Dodge Challenger leads Midsize Sporty Car segment in initial quality for third consecutive year, fourth time in six years
  • Chrysler Town & Country is highest ranking Minivan in quality study, Dodge Grand Caravan ranks second in segment
June 22, 2016 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Chrysler and Jeep® are the most improved brands in J.D. Power’s 2016 U.S. Initial Quality StudySM (IQS) with both brands improving their initial quality scores by 20 percent from last year’s study.

For a third consecutive year and for the fourth time in six years (2011, 2014-16), Dodge Challenger ranks at the top of the Midsize Sporty Car segment.

FCA US minivans also performed well in the study. Chrysler Town & Country ranks highest among Minivans in initial quality with Dodge Grand Caravan taking second place in the segment.

“Our commitment to quality is starting to show results as Chrysler and Jeep make strong improvements in initial quality, but there is still much work to do,” said Scott Garberding, Head of Quality, FCA – Global. “My colleagues and I are focused on continuing the positive momentum created so far as we look to earn and maintain the trust and loyalty of customers across all our brands.”

IQS is based on responses from more than 80,000 purchasers and lessees of new 2016 model-year vehicles surveyed after 90 days of ownership. The study asks customers to identify issues with their vehicles’ design, as well as defects.

“Dodge Challenger continues to impress new owners year after year with the muscle car now leading the Midsize Sporty Car segment in initial quality for the third straight year and the fourth time in six years,” Garberding added. “Chrysler and Dodge minivans continue their leadership position in the segment by taking the top two spots in initial quality.”

The Dodge brand’s Challenger muscle-car arsenal for 2016 is reloaded as the most complete model lineup with 10 trim levels, ranging from the 707-horsepower SRT Hellcat to the 305-horsepower, 30-mpg, 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6-powered SXT model. All 2016 Dodge Challenger models are designed and engineered for world-class precision and outstanding performance.

Challenger previously achieved the highest IQS ranking among Midsize Sporty Cars in 2011, 2014 and 2015, as well as being named a segment leader in the J.D. Power U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) StudySM in 2014 and 2015.

The IQS study, now in its 30th year, is based on a 233-question survey conducted between February and May 2016.

2-Door JL Wrangler Spotted

From AutoGuide.com…

2doorJL

The all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler has been spied testing once again, this time with both two- and four-door models. 

The prototypes in these shots are still heavily camouflaged, but a few small design details are visible. First of all, the round headlights and iconic seven-slot grille seem to still be in place, showing that the Jeep designers don’t want to stray far from the current look. Small LED light strips have been added to the front wheel arches and the exposed door hinges seen on the current model are still in place. Even the mirrors from the current Wrangler are still being used.

Inside of these prototypes, the dashboard setup is identical to the previous Wrangler, though this may a case of misdirection to keep the new interior design under wraps. It’s not clear if these model are showing production-intent design, or if FCA is simply still testing its powertrains and hasn’t put together a full prototype with a new interior yet. READ MORE AT AUTOGUIDE.COM

 

 

 

 

Jeep Recalling Wranglers For Air Bags

Jeep and FCA are recalling nearly 400,000 Jeep JK Wranglers and JKU Wrangler Unlimiteds from model years 2007 to 2010 for possible faulty air bags in the steering wheels. The reason for recall is due to dust and dirt accumulation collecting on the clock-spring in the steering wheel assembly. This would prevent the air bag from properly deploying during a collision.

There have been no reports of injuries. See your local dealer for more information.

Since 1941, when the first Jeep vehicle was born, the brand has continued to engineer and produce unique, versatile and capable vehicles.Since its inception three-quarters of a century ago, the Jeep brand has been closely linked with the ideas of freedom, authenticity, adventure and passion:

Cherokee:  The mid-size SUV that offers legendary Jeep Trail Rated 4×4 capability combined with
no-compromise on-road driving dynamics and fuel economy improved up to 45 percent versus its predecessor.  The Cherokee delivers numerous innovative features, including a segment-first nine-speed automatic transmission, three new 4×4 systems, rear-axle disconnect, and a host of advanced safety, security and technology features

Whether identified by their ownership of multiple Jeep vehicles, or their regular attendance at branded events, or by their abundance of Jeep gear – branded products from clothing to baby strollers – Jeep owners all have one common trait:  a vehicle providing benchmark all-weather capability that allows them to go anywhere and do anything.  It’s not unusual to see Jeep vehicles sporting a bumper sticker that reads, “It’s a Jeep thing…you wouldn’t understand.”

About American Authors
A four-piece alt-rock outfit based in Brooklyn, American Authors use their razor-sharp musicianship and natural mastery of song craft as a jumping-off point for sonic exploration. On their debut album “Oh, What a Life,” singer Zac Barnett, guitarist James Adam Shelley, bassist Dave Rublin and drummer Matt Sanchez weave in everything from hip-hop grooves and Afro-Latin rhythms to dance pop synths and Queen-inspired vocal harmonies — all while staying true to a rock ‘n’ roll energy and melodic sensibility that’s highly refined. Featuring their breakout hit song, “Best Day of My Life,” and follow-up single, “Believer,” the sunny yet soulful “Oh, What a Life” is also built on a magnetic sense of optimism that’s carried American Authors from their formation at Boston’s Berklee College of Music to their down-and-out early years in Brooklyn to their current status as an internationally touring band on an ever-growing rise.

About X Ambassadors
For X Ambassadors, an unshakable sense of brotherhood has long shaped the sound and spirit of the band. Growing up in small-town upstate New York, front man Sam Harris, his brother, Casey, and childhood friend Noah Feldshuh bonded over an obsessive love for punk, rock ‘n’ roll, soul and hip-hop that defied the conventions of their peer group. Forming their first band in middle school, the three channeled their infatuation with artists as eclectic as The Stooges and The Staple Singers into a string of musical projects that sharply clashed with their local scene’s favoring of folk and country. After graduating high school and decamping to New York City in search of a greater music community, the Harris brothers and Noah joined up with L.A.-raised drummer Adam Levin — a move that helped X Ambassadors solidify their sound into a groove-fueled take on alt-pop, and ultimately land a deal with KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records.

Most recently, X Ambassadors teamed up with label mate Jamie N Commons and producer Alex Da Kid to write “Jungle,” a song that has become an unofficial anthem of the 2014 World Cup when it was included in the Beats by Dre “The Game Before The Game” commercial.  For more information about X Ambassadors visit www.xambassadors.com.
