47 vehicles were eligible for the prestigious awards.
The winners were finally selected after three rounds of votes.
The 2023 North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year (NACTOY) awards carry an enormous amount of clout both on the continent and globally. The three winners were selected from 47 new vehicles deemed eligible for the coveted titles and here they are:
North American Car of the Year: Acura Integra
North American Truck of the Year: Ford F-150 Lightning
North American Utility Vehicle of the Year: Kia EV6
“This year showed the unprecedented variety of vehicles on sale today, including reborn models of iconic nameplates, numerous electric vehicles, thrilling high-performance or off-road vehicles, impressive luxury products, and even all-new manufacturers,” said NACTOY President Gary Witzenburg. “This was an extremely competitive year, but this year’s winners rose to the top to earn the collective votes of our 50 jurors, and we congratulate Acura, Ford, and Kia for bringing their outstanding offerings to market this year.”
The next round in the new car awards season happens next week as the AJAC will announce the winning vehicles in each of its 12 categories on January 19, 2023, at the Montreal International Auto Show. The overall winners will be revealed as part of the opening ceremonies for the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto on February 16, 2023.
