One of the only awards not affiliated with a specific media outlet has announced its finalists for their Car of the Year competition.
This award is voted on by journalists from many of the North American media outlets and each is able to assign their points across all nominees.
This year, the finalists include (of interest to our audience) the Cadillac ATS as well as the new Fort Fusion and Honda Accord.
On the truck side, Ford’s CMAX, Mazda CX-5, and the RAM 1500.
The winners will be announced in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.
If we had to bet, we would place about even money on either the ATS or Fusion taking Car of the Year honors this time around. We’ll know in about a month.
