The best cars and trucks from American automotive brands come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, ranging from blindingly-fast muscle cars and luxury sedans, to hard-working pickup trucks and spacious SUVs.  

We’ve crunched the numbers from our rigorous testing and scoring system, to bring you 22 vehicles that earn our highest ratings across a number of key categories. These scores evaluate overall safety, handling and performance, cabin comfort, available cargo room, predicted reliability and much, much more.  

It’s worth remembering, however, that while all the cars and trucks in this slideshow hail from an American nameplate, not all of them are built here in the U.S. If you want an American-made vehicle, check out this equally diverse list of brand-new vehicles made in the USA.

With that in mind, keep reading to discover the best cars, trucks, and SUVs from American car brands.
