There really isn't a single top rated furnace as there are a few brands that make high quality and high efficiency furnaces. It may come down to the features you are looking for and a few other variables such as efficiency and price.
That said, what is most important is the installation and that it is properly sized to your home. You can buy the best, most expensive furnace, but if it isn't properly sized or installed you'll be unhappy with it. This is why selecting the right HVAC contractor is the most important step. This also generally represents the bulk of the cost of buying and installing a new furnace.
With that in mind, a few brands that are routinely highly rated are Ruud, Carrier, Bryant, Trane, and Rheem. For a list of highly rated furnaces on this site you can go here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/furnace_ratings.html.
To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present. To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.
