AutoPacific Award Standards

For 2021, the AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Survey queried 89,000 new car, truck, and SUV owners, measuring how well they were satisfied with their vehicles. This survey covers how owners feel about 36 vehicle attributes, including performance, interior design, and tech usability. Answers were weighted according to the importance of each attribute. Top-scoring vehicles won spots on the list of 2021 AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction Award winners.

Sporty Car: Chevrolet Camaro

The Chevrolet Camaro won an impressive victory in the Sporty Car segment, delivering a more satisfying ownership experience than formidable competitors like the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger.

Happily for its sporty status, the Camaro got high owner ratings for its ride, braking, and handling. With four engine options ranging from a 275-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo to a 650-horsepower supercharged V8, the Camaro is designed to thrill. Brembo® brakes, three responsive transmission choices, and performance options like Active Rev Matching and Magnetic Ride Control™ make this car a joy to drive.

Camaro owners also loved the vehicle’s muscle-car looks, its paint options (like premium Wild Cherry Tintcoat and Crush), and its interior design. They noted that the cockpit controls and infotainment screen in the Camaro are easy to see and understand, the cabin is easy to get in and out of, and the car’s overall quality and reliability are outstanding.

Compact Pickup: Chevrolet Colorado

The Chevrolet Colorado outperformed models like the Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma, topping the Compact Pickup segment in convincing fashion.

Crucially, the Colorado got high ratings on key truck attributes like power, acceleration, and handling. Chalk it up to the sturdy powertrain options in the Colorado: a 200-horsepower 2.5-liter, a 308-horsepower V6, and a Duramax® Turbo-Diesel that delivers 369 lb-ft of torque and a 7,700-pound towing max. For all-terrain adventurers, the Colorado even offers dedicated off-road models like the tough Z71 and ZR2.

In the survey, Colorado owners also appreciated the truck’s design. They gave high scores to its driver’s seat visibility and ease of entry/exit, along with the intuitive controls and large touch-screen size provided by the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System. The exterior styling of the Colorado — which includes the CornerStep rear bumper, 17-inch wheels, and a locking tailgate with available EZ-Lift and Lower — received strong ratings, too.

Premium Midsize Crossover SUV: Chevrolet Blazer

The Premium Midsize Crossover SUV segment was especially competitive this year, but the Chevrolet Blazer triumphed easily over models including the Hyundai Santa Fe and Ford Edge.

Living up to its sporty reputation, the Blazer collected praise from owners for providing a fun, powerful, and fast-accelerating experience behind the wheel. The Blazer offers a smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission, plus exciting engine choices like a 2.0-liter turbo that makes 227 horsepower and a 3.6-liter V6 that thrills with 308 horsepower.

Blazer owners were just as happy with the SUV’s exterior styling and interior design. Adding to its already aggressive, high-performance look, the Blazer is available in a fierce RS trim with 20-inch wheels and black accents. Stylish Midnight, Sport, and Redline editions are available, too. Inside the cabin, the Blazer got excellent marks from owners for the simplicity of the controls, the adjustability of the driver’s seat, and seat positioning that makes getting in and out easy.
