The Best Vehicle Brands in Our Rankings

With so many cars and SUVs to choose from, beginning with a brand can be a useful place to start your search. That said, it can be complex having to navigate a constantly evolving marketplace where brands regularly come and go. With our Best Vehicle Brand awards, we hope to simplify the process and give you a good place to start.

Some brands offer diverse lineups, so we’ve focused our analysis on four common categories: cars, SUVs, trucks, and luxury vehicles, and found the best brand in each segment. The winning brand’s vehicles tend to rank near the top of their respective classes, so you can be confident you're making a smart purchase.

If you don’t consider yourself a brand loyalist, or you’re considering changing lanes, this award is a good place to start. Even if you’re a fourth-generation Ford driver, it’s always worth shopping around. Read on to learn about our winnings brands that should be at the top of your test-drive list.
