Earlier this year, J.D. Power released its 2021 APEAL Study and named the all-new Ford Bronco Sport and Mustang Mach-E two of its top honorees. The annual study measures the attachment new-vehicle owners have to their rides, so it’s no surprise to see two Ford superstars on the list.
The 2021 Ford Bronco Sport, which boasts standard 4×4 and a chic Bronco-inspired design, topped the APEAL Study in the Small SUV category. In a bit of beautiful irony, the Bronco Sport outranked onetime rival the Chevrolet Trailblazer, which ranked a distant third.
In the Compact SUV segment, the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E electrified customers to earn the top spot in the segment. The Mustang Mach-E has been one of the most popular new vehicles in the Ford lineup thanks to its impressive range, power, styling, and technology.
“Ford very much believes in listening to its customers,” said Chris Brewer, executive director, quality, Ford Motor Company. “These vehicles were created to delight and impress them every time they get behind the wheel. We’re honored by this award. It tells us we’re delivering on their wants and needs.”
The all-new 2021 Ford Bronco Sport and Mustang Mach-E both earned top honors in the new APEAL Study because customers love them. To see for yourself, contact the team at Shults Ford South and we’ll set you up with a test drive in either or both of these amazing vehicles.
