The North American International Auto Show opens each year by handing out various prestigious awards. The most coveted awards include the North American Car of the Year and North American Truck/Utility of the Year. On Monday, Chevrolet took home both.
That’s right. Two of Chevy’s magnificently redesigned vehicles grabbed the top spots in each division. General Motors had another impressive showing, as several models appeared on the finalist list.
For Chevrolet it would have been a big year, regardless of the awards. The much anticipated release of the Stingray and Silverado were met with much adulation, and at NAIAS the praise continued.
To receive the North American Car of the Year and/or North American Truck/Utility of the Year, 48 full-time automotive journalist vote on winners from a list of finalist.
Awards for both the Corvette Stingray; the seventh production of the bringing back a famed moniker, and the Silverado; a complete redesign and third evolution of the truck, show how dedicated Chevrolet has been to making consumer focused vehicles.
Recently promoted GM CEO Mary Barra said, “I hope that people look and if they haven’t considered General Motors or Chevrolet, they’ll get into the showroom, because I’m confident if they get into the showroom they’ll see a lot of vehicles they like.”
