In all honesty, I think the Genesis Coupe should get it. It represents such a giant leap for Hyundai, and a very good showing for their first performance car. Even if it isn't necessarily the best car, it is no doubt significant.

Camaro should. Considering how GM is in such trouble and I think this car can help them out of their slump. Just hope it's not to late for them. Also think North American Car of the year award should actually go to aNorth American built car. But that's my opinion and opinions are like azzholes everybody has one.

Buick LaCrosse will take it. That is one refined car. CTS is badastic as well. Although, I would not be upset if Camaro takes it since we'll be owners.

Would like it to be the Camaro but with all the Eco this and that.... the Taurus SHO with the Eco Boost engine may squeeze in there.

This Camaro is well built, safe and good looking. That's why it should win.

So are the other GM vehicles in the list. They deserve it just as much.

Fusion Hybrid and Taurus SHO are very strong contenders.

I just have this gut feeling that the Prius is going to get it being that it is the most "politically correct" car on the list...

Uhhhhh, it won last year. (Genesis)
The year before was the Malibu.
I think the Camaro has a great shot & I hope wins!

The Camaro has a chance due to popularity and sales, however if it becomes a political decision, then the Prius will win..

I would love to see the Camaro win and I think it deserves it as much as any other car on that list, but I have a feeling the Prius will be given the award. The Fusion hybrid or the Taurus may have a chance also.

Even if I wasn't buying a Camaro, I would have voted for the 2010 Camaro.
Clear out winner all around.

As much as I hate to say it, I think the 370z should be a close contender as well. Though, I have my doubts that it will be able to pull it off.
