By: Jeff Youngs, 10/4/2013
For the 2014 awards, the group of 50 critics has taken its first vote, narrowing the field of potential winners by selecting 12 models in each category. Listed below are those makes and models that have made the "short list," which reflects the results of the first round of voting.
Note that the Buick Encore and long-wheelbase version of the Hyundai Santa Fe are included. Both models debuted for the 2013 model year, but were launched too late to be included in last year's voting.
2014 North American Car of the Year Short List:
BMW 4 Series
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
2014 North American Truck of the Year Short List:
Hyundai Santa Fe
Land Rover Range Rover Sport
Jurors will take a second vote in early December, reducing each short list to a final ballot including three cars and three trucks. Then, in January, jurors will take a final vote and announce the winners at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
