What The Awards Mean
Launched in 2020, MotorTrend’s Ultimate Car Rankings were created to help the average car buyer better understand their options. They use MotorTrend’s long-running Car, Truck, and SUV of the Year award programs as a foundation. Similarly, the sophisticated Ultimate Car Rankings system smartly evaluates the automotive market. The rankings cover how a car drives, utilize IntelliChoice-backed long-term value analysis and evaluate a vehicle’s safety, efficiency, driving range, technology, and more. The rankings were done in more than 45 segments.
Of the awards, Buyer’s Guide Director Zach Gale said:
Only the very best cars, SUVs, and trucks perform well in MotorTrend’s Ultimate Car Rankings. We recognize the most well-rounded vehicles available today, ones that are fun to drive, offer impressive tech, and have great long-term value ratings. Because buyers have high standards, we do, too. Achieving excellence in MotorTrend’s Ultimate Car Rankings system is not easy, but first-place and top-ranked award winners are the best vehicles around.
