The North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year (NACTOY) Award™ winners were announced at 11 a.m. EST today (Monday, January 11) during a virtual event with representatives from winning automakers.

2021 Hyundai Elantra wins North American Car of the Year award.

NACTOY officers have made the decision to hold the event virtually rather than at Detroit’s TCF Center in light of ongoing COVID-19 concerns. There will be a media Q&A period with representatives from the winning automakers. The event was held in partnership with the North American International Auto Show.

The nine Finalists for the highly anticipated North American Car of the Year™, North American Truck of the Year™ and North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™ were announced earlier this month after jurors voted to narrow the field of candidates from a very competitive 27 Semifinalists.

The Finalists include:

The Ford F-150 has just been named North American Truck of the Year.
The 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E has just been named North American Utility Vehicle of the Year.

Now in their 28th year, the NACTOY awards are selected through a series of three separate votes by a diverse jury of automotive journalists from numerous outlets in the United States and Canada.

This event was livestreamed on the NACTOY website, on the NAIAS website as well as on this direct livestream link: https://livestream.com/accounts/5297578/events/9459187/open_rtmp
