If there’s evidence General Motors is building some of the most competitive vehicles it ever has, its standings in the North American Car and Truck of the Year semifinals list is a good place to start.
GM has eight vehicles represented on the NACTOY semifinals list from each of its North American brands. They include:
- Buick Cascada
- Buick Envision
- Buick LaCrosse
- Cadillac CT6
- Cadillac XT5
- Chevrolet Bolt EV
- Chevrolet Cruze
- GMC Acadia
It’s the most of any other manufacturer or brand this time around, giving GM a real shot at taking home the significant honor. However, GM is missing from the truck category. Ford, Honda and Nissan took the semifinalist spots for truck of the year, leaving the Silverado, Colorado, Sierra and Canyon out of the running.
Now jurors will evaluate each semfinalist for their respective categories before voting a winner. The winners will be announced at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in January. The entire list of contenders can be found right here.
