Best Cars for the Money Awards 2013

From autoblog:

The U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards picks winners by looking at the average transaction price, five-year total cost of ownership, the regard a car has from the automotive press, reliability figures from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The result, according to the magazine, is "the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value."

Ford nabbed six of the 21 categories that received awards this year, the Focus, Fusion, Fusion Hybrid, Taurus, Escape and Edge getting trophies. Toyota and its Lexus and Scion sub-brands took another five, the Tacoma and Tundra owning the two categories given to pickup trucks. The other ten awards were split between Honda with three, Buick with two, and one each for Subaru, BMW, Hyundai, Chevrolet and Mazda.

From U. S. News:

The battle between the car you want and the car that fits your budget usually ends with you feeling like you gave up too much on both sides.
It doesn't have to feel that way.
The 2013 U.S. News Best Cars for the Money Awards highlight cars that professional car critics love that are also great values. The awards combine the average price paid and five-year total cost of ownership data from TrueCar.com with the U.S. News Best Car rankings data. The U.S. News rankings are based on the opinion of the automotive press about a car's performance, interior features and interior comfort, as well as reliability data from J.D. Power and Associates and safety data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The winning cars have the best combination of critical acclaim and long-term value. In essence, these are the cars that will leave you feeling like you got a great car and a great deal.

Way to go Ford!
