NACTOY Winners Announced At The 2019 Detroit Auto Show

This year’s 2019 North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year are spot on, at least according to us.

As one of the most coveted new car awards in North America, the NACOTY can make realistically make or break a vehicle in this market. This year’s crop of finalists read like the what’s what’s of what’s new.

The finalists were:

Car of the Year: Genesis G70; Honda Insight; Volvo S60/V60

Utility Vehicle of the Year: Acura RDX; Hyundai Kona/Kona EV; Jaguar I-Pace

Truck of the Year: Chevrolet Silverado; GMC Sierra 1500; RAM 1500

For Car of the Year, the Genesis G70 took the honors; truly, it has turned out to be one of the biggest surprises and most satisfying new cars on the market this year.

The Utility Vehicle of the Year title went to the Hyundai Kona. We’re huge fans of Hyundai’s hyper-popular crossover and think it deserves the accolade.

The Truck of the Year went to the RAM 1500. Without saying that GM missed an opportunity, FCA’s RAM truck division seriously poured everything into their new truck and it shows.
