Here Are the Top Contenders for the U.S. News Best Large Car for the Money Award

Large sedan sales may be declining, but the segment is not yet dead. Drivers who spend hours on the highway or need room in the back for colleagues still appreciate the interior space, comfortable ride, and full trunk of a large sedan. These vehicles also appeal to families who need one car that can do the school drop-off in the morning and present a professional appearance all day. The contenders in this category are all road-trip ready, with up-to-date infotainment and safety technology.

Large sedans are the priciest non-luxury sedans you can buy, but they don’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. To help you get the most for your money, we created the U.S. News Best Large Car for the Money award. The award goes to the car offering the best combination of quality and value.

To determine quality, we used the overall score from the U.S. News large car rankings. We then used pricing data from TrueCar and five-year cost-of-ownership data from Vincentric to paint a better picture of the car’s overall value.

Read through the following slides to see how each large car ranked in our Best Large Car for the Money award calculations.

Keep in mind that the scores on our site are updated constantly as new expert reviews and data become available. Therefore, the scores mentioned in this slideshow may not match the scores in our reviews.
