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.
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.
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.
