Every year at the Detroit auto show, a gaggle of automotive journalists kick the event off by voting on the North American Car and Truck of the Year. This year the car finalists were:

  • Cadillac ATS
  • Ford Fusion
  • Honda Accord

The truck choices were, of course, mostly things that aren't even remotely trucks, as usual:

  • Ford C-Max
  • Mazda CX-5
  • Ram 1500

The winners were the Cadillac ATS, which is really bringing the fight to BMW in a way that Cadillac has never managed before, and the extremely innovative new Ram 1500, which is the only thing that is actually a truck on the list.
