2020 Pickup Truck of the Year: Final Scoring & Thank You
The Final Scorecard
Our Pickup Truck of the Year scoring method uses seven weighted categories as the means to declaring a winner. The rundown is as follows: 15 percent Highway Performance (vehicle handling, ride quality, steering feel, NVH, and such), 15 percent Towing and Hauling (how the vehicle reacts with a class-specific weighted trailer and maximum payload), 15 percent Off-Road Performance (evaluating each vehicle's performance and off-road-centric features, such as traction aids, tires, and four-wheel-drive system operation in a specific off-highway environment), 10 percent Interior (instrumentation, ingress and egress, seat comfort, storage, appearance, driving position, material choice), 10 percent Exterior (styling, appearance, and features), 15 percent Functionality (passing power, parking prowess, ease of use of technology), and 20 percent Empirical Data (loaded and unloaded acceleration, braking, and quarter-mile; weight, pricing, fuel economy, and such). Each of these individual categories contains a series of subsections to which each judge assigns a numerical value (excluding Empirical). All the judges' votes are then tabulated, and total scoring is averaged and normalized.
