“Through many J.D. Power studies, customers share their satisfaction levels about quality, dependability and performance areas within the auto industry, but this is the first time the achievements of engineering teams are being recognized,” said Doug Betts, senior vice president of global automotive at J.D. Power. “It’s recognition that comes from the people who buy the vehicles, and that’s something that should bring great pride to the recipients.”

The awards will be presented during the SAE International Awards Ceremony, which will be held Tuesday, April 9 at 5:30 p.m. in Room 260, Portside Ballroom, Cobo Center. J.D.
