It doesn’t have to be hard to find a car that’s quiet, regardless of your ideal style.

U.S. News & World Report released its list of the Quietest Cars, SUVs and Trucks in 2024. When determining the rankings, U.S. News looked at which sedans, SUVs, and hybrid and electric cars have “hushed cabins and refined rides.”

Many of the vehicles they named, however, were luxury vehicles. To highlight more affordable options, our list includes those that have a starting retail price below $75,000. The following are the top-rated vehicles, from most to least expensive.

The Rivian R1T’s “well-built cabin” and “more refined on-road driving manners” are a couple of factors behind its quieter ride. But its quiet interior doesn’t mean this truck is delicate. It can drive through more than 3 feet of water, rock crawl a 100% grade and tow up to 11,000 pounds.
