Malibu Wins Car of the Year!!

Score another one for GM!

Quote:
Malibu Wins Car of the Year

By Bob Lutz
GM Vice Chairman

Moments ago, the North American Car & Truck of the Year were announced at the North American International Auto Show here in Detroit. I'm proud and pleased to tell you that the Chevy Malibu just won Car of the Year.

46 independent expert jurors – men and women who review automobiles for a living – judged the Malibu to be the best car available in North America. That's honor enough, but then you have to remember that GM swept the awards last year with the Saturn Aura and Chevy Silverado. We've now won three of the past four awards handed out by this jury. I can't tell you how gratifying it is to get this kind of validation from the experts — it's proof that our efforts to bring the best cars and trucks on the planet to market are paying off.

We told you we were going to make the new Malibu the best mid-size sedan on the market -- one that wouldn't just be "as good" as the competition, but would be better than the competition. Well, we've done it; critics and consumers have been saying so since the Malibu was launched in the fall, and now the NACTOY jury has agreed.

And speaking of the competition, congratulations to Mazda on the CX-9, a fine vehicle that won North American Truck of the Year honors.

More details to come, but I wanted to share the good news with you while it's hot.
Now we can look forward to next year as the '10 Camaro wins yet one more award: The North American Car of the year - it already won 2006's best concept car award - and score one more for GM, and Chevy!!!

The other finalists for NACOTY were the CTS and the Accord. For NATOTY the other finalists were the Enclave and the Tahoe Hybrid. So 4/6 finalists were GM, not bad at all

I've not been a traditional fan of the Malibu platform, but the new one is hot. GM does good work!

I don't know how the Camaro could lose, honestly. I can't wait for that award.
