U.S. News & World Report has announced the winners of its Best Vehicle Brand awards. To get the winners, the company evaluated 34 brands that are sold in North America evaluating them based on the high quality of their vehicles. Four winners were chosen, one in each of the four categories: Best Car Brand, Best SUV Brand, Best Truck Brand, and Best Luxury Brand.
To determine which automaker reigns supreme, U.S. News averaged the overall score, as determined by the U.S. News Best Cars review team based on the consensus of the automotive press, safety scores, and reliability data, of every brand’s products in each award class. The brand with the highest overall average score was named the winner in the category.
“Many buyers know the type of vehicle they want but not the best brands for their needs,” says Jamie Page Deaton, executive editor of U.S. News Best Cars. “The Best Vehicle Brand awards point consumers to the brands that excel in producing the type of vehicle each buyer is interested in.”
