2014 North American Car of the Year Long List Announced

2014 North American Car of the Year Long List Announced

The long list of vehicles in the running for the 2014 North American Car of the Year and 2014 North American Truck/Utility of the Year has been announced.

Last year, the Cadillac ATS won the honors of being North American Car of the Year while the Ram 1500 claimed the title of 2013 North American Truck/Utility of the Year. Cadillac may be looking at back-to-back wins as the 2014 Cadillac CTS is on the long list for the 2014 North American Car of the Year award, though it’s up against some stiff competition including the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Jaguar F-Type. Other noticeable vehicles on the list include the new Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Toyota Corolla, and the Maserati Ghibli. Both the new 2014 Mazda3 and Mazda6 were also on the list.

As for the Truck/Utility of the Year award, the Ram 2500/3500 is up for the running, but so is the Range Rover Sport, BMW X5, and a trio of Toyotas: 4Runner, Tundra, and RAV4.

It’s worth noting that Korean automaker Kia has five vehicles up on the long list (between both categories) along with Chevrolet.

The long list will be trimmed down to a short list of a dozen or so vehicles later this fall, after the vehicles have been driven by NACTOY’s 50 jurors. Another vote will then follow to narrow it down to three finalists for each category with the winners announced at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.
