The GMC Sierra 1500 and 2500/3500 Heavy-Duty pickup trucks have won their respective categories in the J.D. Power and Associates' 2014 Vehicle Dependability Study. The half-ton GMC ranked highest in the Light Duty Pickup category, with the Toyota Tundra and Chevrolet Avalanche finishing in the No. 2 and 3 positions. In the heavy-duty segment, the GMC Sierra HD was the winner, with the Chevy Silverado HD finishing in the second spot. The Ford F-250/F-350 Super Duty came in third.
The J.D. Power's Vehicle Dependability study is based on a survey of 41,000 respondents who identify incidents and problems with their 3-year-old vehicles (2011 model year), sharing their experiences. The fact that these are ratings for older pickups explains why, in the Midsize Pickup category, the Ford Ranger and GMC Canyon finished second and third respectively. The Honda Ridgeline ranked highest.
