2015 NACTOY short list announced image

The short list of the 2015 North American Car and Truck of the Year has been recently announced, but the winners in both sides will be made public at the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit, next January.

The most prestigious award for cars and trucks over-seas is named the NACTOY (North American Car and Truck of the Year) and now the short list for 2015 has been announced by a team of 50 automotive journalists. The vehicles chosen must be popular sellers so this means that many exotic cars are ruled out. The award has been around ever since 1994 and last year the winners were both from Chevrolet, the Corvette Stingray and the Silverado 1500. The final winners will be announced during the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit. You can check out the short list of the 2015 NACTOY below.
