Ford topped all U.S. brands at No. 5, with Chevrolet at 6th, Lincoln at 7th, Cadillac at 12th, Buick at 16th, Jeep at 17th, Dodge at 19th, GMC at 20th and Chrysler at 26th.
Ford Motor Co. received five awards for individual models: The Ford Expedition, Ford Mustang, Ford Super Duty, Lincoln Continental, and Lincoln MKC topped their respective segments.

Expeditions carry more cargo and tow more weight than primary competitors do.
