2015 NACTOY shortlists

Following an initial voting round, the shortlists for the 2015 North American Car of the Year and Truck / Utility of the Year awards have been announced.

Some high profile candidates have not made it through. For example, in the car group, the BMW i3, Cadillac ATS Coupe, Dodge Charger and Jaguar F-Type Coupe weren’t considered good enough by the jurors. Among the SUVs that won’t be going any further in the process are the BMW X4, Jeep Renegade and Volvo XC90.

This year, Chevrolet took both prizes with the Corvette Stingray and Silverado. It won’t be able to repeat that feat in 2015, but Audi, Ford, Mercedes-Benz and Toyota could score a double victory.
