The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 walked away empty-handed from the 2018 North American International Auto Show. The North American Car and Truck of the Year judges named the 2018 Lincoln Navigator the truck of the year.
The finalists also included the 2018 Ford Expedition, which judged deemed impressive, but the Navigator edged the Colorado and Ford-twinned SUV out.
“The 2018 Navigator received a more dramatic update than its Ford Expedition sibling and its impact for the brand will be stronger as a result,” said NACTOY juror Ron Sessions of the New York Daily News. “With its design now aligned with the Continental, the Navigator becomes an even more important image – and the profit-maker for Lincoln.”
The Colorado as a whole hasn’t gone unnoticed in recent years, however. Chevy’s mid-size pickup won Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year award two years in a row.
