GM is the Odds-On Favorite to Take North American "of the Year" Honors
The group of journalists responsible for the 2014 North American Car and Truck/SUV of the Year announced their full list of nominees back in July and out of those first 47 cars, trucks and SUVs, 9 of them were from General Motors – making them the early favorites to take home at least one of the big awards. When the short list was announced in October, that list of 47 had shrunken down to 24 cars, trucks and SUVs with 6 of those being General Motors’ vehicles. Now that the three finalists from each category have been announced, GM’s share of the list has grown from 25% to 50% as 3 of the 6 finalists were penned in the Detroit Renaissance Center.
The 2014 North American Car of the Year finalists are the 2014 Cadillac CTS, the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the 2014 Mazda 3 while the 2014 North American Truck/SUV of the Year finalists are the Acura MDX, the Chevrolet Silverado and the Jeep Cherokee.
