At a ceremony in Detroit on Tuesday, two Ford SUV and pickup models and a Honda compact car took home the top prizes in the annual North American Car, Truck, and Utility Vehicle of the Year Awards, also known by the acronym “NACTOY.”
The winners were voted on by a panel composed of automotive media from the U.S. and Canada. Here’s a look at the winners as well as finalists in the three categories:
Car of the Year
The win was the first in the category for Honda since 2018, when the Accord took top honors. Honda has won six awards since 1994.
Truck of the Year
Ford also took home Truck of the Year last year when its F-150 was awarded the top honor.
Utility of the Year
Utility vehicles — including SUVs and crossovers — have been granted their own award since 2017. Previously, the awards paired them with pickup trucks. See new car models for sale
