2015 North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year Candidates Announced

The 2015 North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year long list has been announced.

For next year’s Car of the Year and Truck/Utility of the Year selection process, the jury will consider 28 candidates in the car category and 29 vehicles in the truck/utility segment, which also includes crossovers. Last year, Chevrolet did a rare brand sweep by winning both categories with its Corvette Stingray and Silverado models. It’s possible for another automaker to do the same this year with GM, Ford, BMW, Hyundai, Kia and Toyota all having multiple nominees.
