Much of this information can be found on the Monroney window sticker that is applied to new vehicles.

There has been a shakeup in the rankings for 2021 with many models in the middle-half of the 2020 Index moving up to the Top 20. Last year's number one, the Ford Ranger, has fallen all the way to the 28th position in 2021.

Tesla, Ford, Jeep, Chevrolet, Toyota and Acura all have models in the Top 20. Honda has five while GMC, Lexus and Lincoln have one.

The biggest movers on the list when comparing 2020 to 2021, aside from the Ranger, are the Ram 1500 Classic (down), Honda CR-V (up), Ford Mustang (up) and Lincoln Navigator (up). A few new models have also been introduced.
