WE’RE INDEPENDENT

The North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year awards are determined by an independent and diverse group of jurors from all across North America.

WE’RE PASSIONATE

Jurors attend launch programs for each eligible vehicle and/or receive vehicle loans, then test drive them again during a three-day, back-to-back comparison held in October for side-by-side evaluations.

WE’RE UNIQUE
