The North American Car of the Year and Truck/Utility of the Year awards are given by a juror of 50 U.S. and Canadian automotive journalists, representing all forms of media, from online to print, to broadcast and radio. (High Gear Media editorial director Marty Padgett is one of the jurors.)
The behind-the-scenes voting took place last month, with a set of finalists yet to come. A final winner will be announced in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
