Formula For T.O.T.Y. Points
For our Truck of the Year testing, we looked at six key areas for scoring, including: overall exterior styling/body panel fitment, interior ergonomics/style, power/drivetrain, ride and handling, audio and navigation quality, and even detail areas like comfort and support of the seats. Each category was weighed for importance and the scores tallied. Here you can see how each editor broke down each truck and the overall scores of the trucks.
