Chevrolet kicked off the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Style, sweeping the awards for the North American Car and Truck of the year with its new Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Silverado.
The coveted awards have been given out annually since 1994 at the opening of the Detroit Auto Show. They are selected by a panel of automotive journalists from the U.S. and Canada. This year, the list of eligible vehicles included 28 cars and 18 truck and utility vehicles.
The Corvette won the award for the first time since 1998, edging out the Cadillac CTS and Mazda3 in the top 3. And the Silverado last won in 2007 and defeated other top 3 finalists Acura MDX and Jeep Cherokee for the Truck/Utility of the Year.
“Chevrolet is in the midst of the most aggressive product transformation in the brand’s more than 100-year history,” said Alan Batey, General Motors senior vice president, global Chevrolet. “The Corvette and Silverado truly embody the passion commitment and focus that is driving us to deliver the most expressive designs, innovative technologies and engaging performance in every vehicle that wears the bow tie.”
This is definitely a huge win for Chevrolet and showcases how incredible the current line-up of Chevy vehicles are today.
