U.S. News & World Report Launches RankingsAndReviews.com
U.S. News & World Report, which publishes the “America’s Best Colleges” and “Best Hospitals” rankings, today announced the launch of RankingsAndReviews.com, a new, free Web site providing research and feedback on major consumer products.
The launch is highlighted by a Best Cars and Trucks category, which features a rankings system that distills all of the automotive information it collects into a single numerical score and enables consumers to side-by-side comparisons of car models.
“This is a major step in our expansion of the critically acclaimed ‘America’s Best’ series,” says Mortimer B. Zuckerman, editor-in-chief of U.S. News & World Report. “Offering consumers a free online destination, which provides independent, trusted information to support their significant investments and critical decisions, is entirely aligned with our broader journalistic commitment and information-sharing mission.”
RankingsAndReviews.com will use proprietary technology and U.S. News & World Report editors to analyze thousands of published car and truck reviews already in existence.
“By essentially offering a review of reviews, Best Cars & Trucks eliminates the confusing and cumbersome task of sorting through the substantial amount of auto information currently available online and allows consumers to easily make sense of the best, most usable information,” says Brian Kelly, editor of U.S. News & World Report. “Our research shows a strong consumer need for comprehensive and reliable online purchasing guidance.”
