LA Auto Show 2018 : 2019 NACTOY Finalists Announced!

Every year and for the last 26, North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year jurors gather in Ypsilanti, Michigan sometime in October for a comparison drive event to test drive the semifinalist vehicles for the highly coveted Awards.

The semi-finalists were announced in mid-September and include a who’s who of the best of the newest. In an unusual twist, there are 14 semifinalists (rather than the usual 12) in the car category because there was a tie in voting for 12th. If you’re interested in browsing the entire list, here’s a link to the NACTOY website.

Here are the finalists:

North American Car

Genesis G70

Honda Insight

Volvo S60/V60

North American Utility

Acura RDX

Hyundai Kona/Kona EV

Jaguar I-Pace

North American Truck

Chevrolet Silverado

GMC Sierra

RAM 1500

The 2019 North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year winners will be announced at North American International Auto Show on Monday, January 14, 2019.
