Esteemed members of the automotive reviewing corps have chosen the "short list" of nominees for the 2011 North American Car and Truck of the Year awards — including the Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, which no one outside of reviewers has driven.
Chosen by a panel of no more than 50 of the best press automakers can buy from a group of only the finest press cars automakers can provide, the actual award will be announced to great fanfare in the basement of Detroit's Cobo Hall during the Detroit Auto Show. Likely during a blizzard.
2011 North American Car of the Year Nominees:
Hyundai Sonata Turbo/Hybrid
Jeep Grand Cherokee
