NACTOY Juror Blog

Our automotive awards are unique because — instead of being given by a single publication, website, radio or television station — they are given by an independent jury of automotive journalists from the United States and Canada. Each year this unbiased jury of approximately 60 expert print and broadcast journalists combine centuries of discerning experience to determine the winners.

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 then test drive them again during a three-day, back-to-back comparison held in October for direct side-by-side evaluations.

WE’RE UNIQUE

Initiated in 1994, the North American Car, Utility and Truck of the Year awards are the longest-running award not associated with a specific publication.
