50 US and Canadian automotive journalist will decide which is the truck and car of the year 2012 for the north American market. The winners will be announced at the Detroit Motor Show in January 2012.
There is no Saab among the 17 nominees for the Car of the Year prize, but the Saab 9-4X has managed to enter the list of 7 nominees for the Truck of the Year prize.
- BMW X3
- Honda CR-V
- Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
- Mercedes-Benz M-Class
- Mini Countryman
- Nissan Quest
- Saab 9-4X
I don’t know how good are the chances for Saab to win that prize, as some of the contenders are also very good cars, so lets keep our finger crossed.
BTW, what is the American definition of truck. I mean, the Countryman do not really fits in that list, does it?
From the NACTOY site you can see that this already the short list. So the 9-4x is not in the list only because its a new truck.
And looking at the winners of the previous years, it is not bad that the 9-4x has the most US genes in that list. 😉
