Car and Truck of the Year Short List is Unveiled

10/4/2012
The short list has been made public for the 20 nominees to be considered for the 2013 North American Car and Truck of the Year auto award that is presented annually by the motoring press. This week, the award jury of 50 automotive journalists in the United States and Canada--including Car and Driver to USA TODAY to Cars.com, as well as Kelley Blue Book--have narrowed their selection of models introduced in 2012 to 11 car models and 9 utilities and trucks. This year is the first time the award jury will include utilities as nominees.

The award recipients will be honored in January 2012 at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, MI, one of the most well-attended auto shows in the world. The announcement of the selected models will be reported during a news conference at the show's press briefings (Jan. 14-15).

In December, three finalists on each of the short lists of nominees this year will be selected.
