The Best Car Brands in U.S. News Rankings

Nearly half of all new car shoppers begin looking for a new car with a brand in mind. With over three dozen car, truck, SUV, and luxury brands on the U.S. market, choosing the best one can be confusing.

The U.S. News Best Vehicle Brand Awards cut through the marketing jargon and overly technical reviews to highlight the brands that are the best at offering the kind of vehicle you’re looking for.

The awards are divided into four categories: Cars, SUVs, Trucks, and Luxury Vehicles. Brand ratings are based on the average of U.S. News Best Cars overall scores for each brand’s vehicle in a given class. U.S. News scores incorporate the consensus opinion of the automotive press, as well as safety and reliability data. In short, the awards recognize the brands that are doing the best work in each of the four major vehicle classes that matter to shoppers.
