Readers often ask us: What is the "best" car or truck? Our Editors' Most Wanted list is a compilation of our editors' 30 favorite models in a variety of vehicle classes. Find out what the Edmunds' editors would choose if they were spending their own money.

How We Selected the Editors' Most Wanted Vehicles
Who Selected the Editors' Most Wanted List
When reviewing our selections, keep in mind that we're a group of men and women who enjoys driving.
We need vehicles that fit this kind of lifestyle.
Our Selections Were Guided as Much by Our Hearts as Our Heads
We eat, breathe and dream automobiles, and in many instances, this love for the car overruled common sense during our selection process. But that's the great thing about the Edmunds.com Editors' Most Wanted list: it's guided by passion, not science (much like the majority of car purchases).
