FREE PRESS AUTO CRITIC
General Motors accounts for four of the six finalists for 2008 North American Car and Truck of the Year, the panel of journalists who present the award announced in a news conference at Cobo Center in Detroit today.
The Cadillac CTS sport sedan and Chevrolet Malibu midsize sedan are finalists for car of the year. The Buick Enclave crossover SUV and Chevrolet Tahoe hybrid SUV are finalists for truck of the year. The other finalists are the Honda Accord midsize sedan and Mazda CX-9 crossover SUV.
The winners will be announced at a news conference of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit Jan. 13.
The strong showing is the latest good news in what's been a very good award season for GM's 2008 models. Motor Trend magazine named the CTS its car of the year. The Tahoe hybrid won Green Car of the Year. The CTS and Malibu are both among Car And Driver magazine's list of the the ten best cars. The Malibu made Automobile magazine's all stars list.
Forty-seven American and Canadian auto writers, including Free Press auto critic Mark Phelan, select the North American Car and Truck of the Year. The awards have been presented every year since 1994.
Jurors evaluate every new vehicle introduced in a year and chose the car and truck of the year based on criteria that include value, innovation, significance and performance.
General Motors won North American Car and Truck of the Year honors for 2007 with the Saturn Aura and Chevrolet Silverado.
Who cares about the Blue Oval crowd and their little Ponys? We're getting our Camaro back-and it'll be Supercharged!-MDAII

I'm loving it!!! GM is back in the game, and on the fast-track to the top. And anybody who says otherwise can suck on the above! I can't wait until the Camaro comes out, just to wipe the competition clean with another, performance enhanced GM-punch! BAM!

I always wondered how they came up w/ car/truck of the year. That's awesome that GM has 4 of the 6 vehicles up for best auto of the year. That says a hell of a lot about GM.
