There are many ways to view the Consumer Reports Ratings to find the highest-rated vehicle in a given category or price range.
But we get many questions from journalists and our readers regarding the best current American-branded vehicles.
To answer that popular query, we sorted vehicles into 14 key categories.
We found that Ford Motor Company has five slots. General Motors captures five entries, Chrysler has three, and Tesla has one.
Reviewing the scores, we find that most of these American models are quite competitive, scoring well in most cases. Unfortunately, some models are not recommended due to below average or unknown reliability.
Check our Ratings (available to online subscribers) to see which ones are top scoring and reliable.
