Best American Cars, SUVs, and Trucks
These are the highest-scoring models from domestic brands in Consumer Reports' ratings
There are many ways to sort and filter Consumer Reports’ ratings to find the best vehicle in a given category or price range. But we’re often asked which new vehicles from traditional U.S. brands get the highest scores.
To answer that question, we’ve compiled a list of the best American cars, SUVs, and trucks based on CR’s Overall Score, which factors in road tests, reliability, owner satisfaction, and safety. To be clear, these are from American brands, but many of them aren’t built in the U.S., and not all models here meet the qualifications to be CR recommended.
