Odds are, when you think of the Dodge Charger or Challenger you think about something like this:

Horsepower. Torque. The scent of burned rubber.

You probably don’t think of excellence in multimedia execution.

Yet in the J.D. Power 2020 U.S. Multimedia Quality and Satisfaction Study released today, in the Midsize/Large category the Dodge Challenger took the top spot, besting the Kia Telluride.

What’s more, the Dodge Charger came in third.

And if that isn’t enough (this is sort of like what Dodge puts under the hoods of those Chargers and Challengers: it is never enough), the Challenger scored 938 points on a 1,000-point scale.

That bests the scores of all other vehicles that won their segments:


The survey was based on responses from 87,282 people who bought or leased new 2020 model year vehicles, and was conducted from February through May.

Dodge, incidentally, has been on a proverbial roll this year when it comes to racking up J.D. Power wins.

It tied with Kia for the J.D. Power 2020 Initial Quality Study; it came in first in the Automotive Performance Execution and Layout (APEAL) study.

Obviously, there’s more than horsepower going on at Dodge.
