New York's Auto Show will see your North American Car/Truck Of the Year award, Detroit β€” and they'll raise you the rest of the world. Wait β€” seriously? Yes, seriously.

Guess that for them, a continent's just not big enough to hold them, it can only hope to contain them. After the jump, we've got the list of what vehicles they think represent their Letterman-like top ten list.
