Most Reliable 2013 Cars: Coupes

7/16/2013
J.D. Power conducts annual surveys of thousands of new- and used-vehicle owners in an effort to learn more about what is going right and what people like about their vehicles, as well as what is going wrong and what people don't like about their vehicles. This information is compiled into industry-standard research studies about vehicle quality, vehicle appeal, and vehicle dependability. From this data, J.D. Power is able to predict which new cars, trucks, SUVs and vans are most likely to prove dependable over time. Listed below, in alphabetical order, are the 2013 model-year coupes that are expected to be the most reliable.


2013 Cadillac CTS
Unmistakable for anything but a Cadillac, the angular CTS Coupe is offered in new paint colors and has a revised grille for 2013. The performance-tuned CTS-V model gets new 2-piece front brake rotors, optionally painted red.








2013 Chevrolet Camaro
Camaros can be equipped with a new touch-screen MyLink infotainment system for 2013, can be painted Blue Ray Metallic, and can be fitted with Mojave leather. Also, a new 1LE Performance package debuts for the Camaro SS, which gets ZL1-spec electric steering this year. LS, LT, SS, and ZL1 versions continue.






2013 Chevrolet Corvette
For the final year of Corvette C6 production, Night Race Blue Metallic paint is offered, as well as a 60th Anniversary Design package. A redesigned 2014 Corvette Stingray replaces the C6 at the end of the summer of 2013.








2013 Ford Mustang
Ford breathes new life into the aging Mustang for 2013, modifying the exterior styling, enhancing V-8 engine output for GT models, and giving the Shelby GT500 a thorough performance upgrade resulting in 662 tire-smoking horsepower.
