The verdict came down this morning as the NACTOY (North American Car and Truck of the Year) Vehicle of the Year awards were presented in the industry's three main categories: Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year.
The jury charged with selecting the winning vehicles is made up of 50 automotive journalists from both Canada and the United States. Last fall, we presented you with finalists in each category.
To be nominated, a product must, within the past year, have been completely redesigned, or significantly improved or be completely new. In all three instances, we're talking about something new on the market.
In the case of the Chevrolet Corvette, it nipped the Toyota Supra and the Hyundai Sonata at the finish line. It was the first victory for a sports car since 2014, the year we saw the renewal of the seventh-generation... Chevrolet Corvette.
