The nominees for the 2016 North American Car and Truck of the Year awards have been recently announced.
No less than 19 vehicles in the Car category and 21 in the Truck one have been announced so far as the jury has the tough job of voting them step by step until a single one remains in each category. Over the following months, the list will be reduced to ten vehicles for each category and in December, each of these models, from the short list, will be tested. The finalists will then be decided for each category and two winning vehicles will be finally announced. The winners will be made public at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, next January, and last year they were the Volkswagen Golf and the Ford F-150.
