There are now six finalists for the coveted North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year awards. Three in each category. “Car of the Year”, sounds like a pretty definitive phrase, but let’s be honest; there’s about 456,588 Car of the Year awards each year. There’s the Motor Trend Car of the Year, Popular Mechanics Car of the Year, So What Magazine Car of the Year, Good Housekeeping Car of the Year, etc.
Ok, maybe not that many and some of those are made up, but there are a lot. However the North American Car and the North American Truck of the Year Awards are kind of a big deal. 48 automotive journalists weigh in on the all-new or significantly refreshed vehicles each year and choose one car and one truck or utility vehicle to be recognized. The winners each year are announced in January of each year to kick off the Detroit Auto Show.
The Truck/Utility category which encompasses trucks and crossover vehicles have three finalists also, the Chevrolet Silverado, Acura MDX, and the Jeep Cherokee. Early predictions have the Corvette and Jeep Cherokee coming out as the winners in January, but we want to know what you think. Who will win?
