The Toyota Tundra earned the 2013 “Best Full-Size Truck for the Money” award from U.S. News & World Report. The Tacoma took home the 2013 “Best Compact Truck for the Money” award.

Online PR News – 08-March-2013 – St. Louis, MO – According to Newbold Toyota, U.S. News & World Report crowned Toyota as victor of the truck market by presenting the brand with two “Best Cars for the Money” awards in pickup divisions. The all-new 2013 Toyota Tundra was named the “Best Full-Size Truck for the Money,” and its smaller counterpart, the 2013 Toyota Tacoma, was named the “Best Compact Truck for the Money.”

These awards are given annually by U.S. News. This year, the awards were announced on February 21, 2013, and went to winning vehicles from 21 different segments. To determine the winner in each segment, U.S. News analyzes value and quality and turns these into a composite score. The vehicle with the highest composite score in each segment wins the award.

Value is based on several different reports and critic reviews. These include TrueCar.com’s five-year total cost of ownership data and the dependability study put out each year by J.D. Power & Associates, as well as the average price paid for the vehicle at the time of publication, safety data gathered from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and reviews issued by the automotive press (about the car’s performance, technology, comfort, etc.). To determine quality, U.S. News uses its own Best Car rankings from the current month.

“Sweeping the pickup truck segment as Best Cars for the Money from U.S. News & World Report is a great honor and reflects Toyota’s commitment to quality, durability, and reliability, all key ingredients for great value,” said Bill Fay, group vice president and general manager, Toyota Division. He added, “These awards are a tribute to our truck engineering and design teams in Michigan, California, and Japan, and every team member at our Toyota Motor Manufacturing Texas plant in San Antonio, where all Tundras and most Tacomas are assembled.”

Newbold Toyota of O’Fallon, Illinois, near St. Louis, Missouri, currently offers both the 2013 Toyota Tundra and the 2013 Toyota Tacoma.
