For its Ultimate Car Rankings, MotorTrend scores vehicles in several categories on a 10-point scale, with grades above 8 indicating excellent performance. Each vehicle is evaluated based on its performance of intended function, fuel efficiency/range, design innovation, technology, safety, and value, with consideration given to contextual factors such as the individual segment and popularity/sales volume.

"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," said Zach Gale, director of MotorTrend Buyer's Guide. "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."
