Following three rounds of voting by 50 members of the print, TV, and electronic media in the U.S. and Canada, the North American Car, Truck, and Sport Utility of the Year awards have been announced. The NACTOY awards are celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2024.

Winner of the North American Car of the Year is the Toyota Prius/Prius Prime. Truck of the Year is the Ford Super Duty, and the winning SUV is the Kia EV9.

NACTOY jurors (full disclosure: I’m on the jury) narrowed their picks down from 52 eligible vehicles to a preliminary list of 25, announced in September at the Detroit Auto Show. After a ride and drive of the semi-finalists, the list was narrowed to nine vehicles, three in each class, announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The other finalists in those classes: The Honda Accord and Hyundai Ioniq 6 (car), the Chevrolet Colorado and Chevrolet Silverado EV (truck), and the Genesis Electrified GV70 and Hyundai Kona (SUV).

“Our winners reflect the fact that a modern vehicle must be a combination of style, utility, and technology,” said NACTOY president Jeff Gilbert. “I commend our 50 jurors for coming up with some excellent choices.”

The full list of NACTOY winners, dating back to 1994, can be found here.
