We’ve been down this road before, with the 5Best Trucks awards we handed out from 2001 to 2008. As we did then, and unlike 10Best Cars, we’ve organized our new truck and SUV awards around segments, with one vehicle from each subset taking home the prize. The incredible model proliferation also sees us expand to 10 categories: full-size pickup, mid-size pickup, van, and seven SUV categories broken down by size and separated into luxury and nonluxury branches.
- The Ford F-150, Mazda CX-9, and Chrysler Pacifica have been named to Car and Driver’s inaugural list of 10Best Trucks and SUVs
- The publication named winners in 10 categories, including the Kia Soul for subcompact SUV, BMW X1 for subcompact luxury SUV, Honda CR-V for compact SUV, Porsche Macan for compact luxury SUV, Mazda CX-9 for mid-size SUV, Audi Q7 for luxury SUV, Mercedes-Benz GLS450 for large SUV, Honda Ridgeline for mid-size pickup, F-150 and F-150 Raptor for full-size pickup, and the Chrysler Pacifica for van.
- n November, Car and Driver released its 2017 10Best Cars list that includes the Chevrolet Bolt, Mazda 3 and Volkswagen golf/Alltrack/GTI/R
