2016 NACTOY short list announced image

The short list for the 2016 North American Car and Truck of the Year has been announced recently.

The North American Car and Truck of the Year awards, or NACTOY as they are being called also, are now in the 23rd year and if you are curious to see which vehicles have made it to the “short list”, than you have come to the right place, because this has been recently announced. Each juror has voted for as many as 15 cars in each of the two categories and, in order to be eligible for the award, the vehicle must be brand new or substantially changed. These must also be popular sellers so this basically means that the exotic brands are being ruled out. The winners will be announced at the 2016 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), in Detroit, next January.
