Hello! It’s your kind deputy editor-in-chief here, capping off a fantastic year reviews and rides for the first time The ride‘s inaugural year-end awards. It’s been an important year for our friends, the cars, so we thought we’d select some of our favorites to receive this great honor. Here’s what you can expect, dear reader.
We take reviews very seriously here The ride. We aim to provide both escapist entertainment and valuable consumer advice. We try to put you all behind the wheel, and every review is written with the value that a reader will walk away with. We listen and pay attention to everything you say to best tailor our stories to you. In short, it’s not about us. It’s about you. The cars we’ve chosen as winners in their respective categories all exhibit features that we believe are the best and most crowd-pleasing.
Starting today, we’ll be announcing the finalists and winners in six categories. We kick off the series with Best Truck later today, then Best EV and Best Car Under $40,000 on Wednesday, Best SUV and Best Performance Car on Thursday, and round out with the overall Best Car of 2022 on Friday. Requirements? The candidates must all be new cars that we drove in 2022 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series from 2012 should win every award under the sun, but it’s disqualified because you can’t actually buy it new.
Contestants were selected based on the score the writer gave in the specification field of their review. We gathered the top five best-selling cars in their category, voted them on by the entire staff and let democracy take its course. There is (obviously) one winner per category, but the remaining four will serve as runner-ups.
Finally, the winners of Best Truck, EV, Car Under $40,000, SUV and Performance Car will battle it out as the Best Overall Car nominees.
Watch this space as we roll out the winners. In the meantime, feel free to leave a comment with what you think will win and why.
