It’s finally time to learn the winners of the North American Car, Truck, and Utility of the Year awards. The announcement will be today at 10:55 AM EST in Detroit, Michigan.

This marks the first time that an electric vehicle is a finalist in all three categories. Having six EVs competing for the awards is also a new record.
The NACTOY jury consists of 50 automotive journalists from the United States and Canada. Each year, they start with a list of new or substantially updated vehicles. They whittle down this long list to a group of semi-finalists and eventually three models in each category that are up for the award.
