    These people actually get paid for coming up with these lists? I hope not very much.

    room for three more since you duplicated yourselves thrice. The Chevy and GMC are the same CUV; just more gingerbread on the GMC. Ditto the 300/300 SRT8 and the CTS and CTS-V. What a joke. Now ADD the Focus, perhaps the Mustang and maybe the new Jeep or Escape.

    Mr. Willis' comments are right on target. Don't know who this outfit is, TCS, but they don't know much about cars in the "real world", cars that people actually purchase. The CTS-V may be great but it is wretchedly expensive compared to a lowly CTS, plus it get terrible mpgs. Just not a car for regularly folk or even many wealthy who'll opt for a BMW, MB or Porsche at that price point.

    Drew-Thanks for your comments. This list comes from Total Car Score, not The Car Connection. It showcases cars from the Detroit Big Three. The TCS for each is a "comprehensivenumber assigned to a vehicle that represents an overall industry assessment from major automotive authorities. All vehicles are model year 2012 with at least five source ratings that comprise the Total Car Score." Note the Focus came in just shy of Chrysler SRT8.In the High Performance segment, competitors to the 2012 Chrysler 300 SRT8 include Volkswagen Golf R, Taurus SHO, Dodge Charger SRT8 and Ford Mustang Boss 302. In Large Sedans & Wagons, Buick LaCrosse is #2 and Chrysler 300 is #5. In Large SUVs & Crossovers, Chevy Traverse is #1, Ford Flex #2, GMC Acadia #3.
