The Best Red Car Nicknames

Updated March 20, 2020 6.1k votes 863 voters 30.3k views48 items

This list of the best red car names is meant to help you pick out the most fitting moniker for your beloved set of wheels. There's a lot to consider when choosing a name for your car, such as the color, model, and make. The best red car nicknames usually mean something special to you, but also describe the "personality" of your ride. 

For smaller, practical red cars, like sedans, you may want to pick a softer, cute, or unassuming name, like Ron Burgundy or Cherry Bomb. Additionally, a name like Big Red or Bloodsoaked Champion would be perfect for a larger red car, like a truck or SUV. You should also consider the context with which you will be using these car names, for example you could be using a phrase like, "let's take the red pill to work today."

Browse this list for red car names that stand out to you, and vote up any you'd consider for your own car.
