This marks the first time in the survey’s history that an SUV has earned the top ranking. The 18th annual APEAL (Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout) study, surveyed over 83,000 drivers through eight categories of vehicle performance and design, including; engine/transmission, ride, handling and braking, comfort/convenience, seats, cockpit/instrument panel, heating, ventilation and cooling, sound system; and styling/exterior. The results for each model were used to assign it an APEAL score on a 1,000-point scale.
“It’s a fantastic achievement for the fourth generation Range Rover to be ranked highest in the J.D. Power 2013 APEAL Study,” says Kim McCullough, Brand Vice President of Land Rover North America. “This underscores the investment being made to innovation and engineering across the Land Rover product portfolio and into making this vehicle the most refined, most capable Range Rover ever.”
