Each year, J.D. Power conducts its Automotive Performance Execution and Layout Study, otherwise known as APEAL. The APEAL study looks at customer feedback regarding their vehicles, rating vehicles based on a wide range of factors to help determine how happy they are with their first three months of ownership.

For 2022, we have some familiar news to share. That’s because Dodge was ranked first for mass-market brands for the third year in a row. No other domestic brand has achieved such a feat. Meanwhile, the Jeep brand saw a massive increase in its APEAL score this year, with the largest jump of any mass-market brand out there. This was due in large part to the success of the Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer, which earned top spots in the large premium SUV and large SUV categories, respectively.
