Honda Civic is NACTOY Car of the Year, Ford Takes Other Two Categories



The North American International Auto Show, aka the Detroit Auto Show, isn’t taking place in January anymore. It’s set for a move to September.

But that didn’t stop the traditional North American Car and Truck of the Year award ceremony from taking place at Cobo Center Huntington Place this morning.

Meanwhile, I watched via live stream from Chicago as the winners were unveiled. They were the Honda Civic (car), Ford Maverick (truck), and Ford Bronco (utility).

Can’t say we’re shocked — Chris and I gave the Maverick our car/truck of the year nod, and I gave the Bronco an honorable mention in that piece. Somehow, I’ve still not driven the Civic — I was scheduled for a loan a while ago but the car was damaged and I didn’t get to see it — but everything I’ve heard so far has been positive.

The other finalists were the Lucid Air and Volkswagen Golf GTI/Golf R (car), Hyundai Santa Cruz and Rivian R1T (truck), and Genesis GV70 and Hyundai Ioniq 5 (utility).
