The list of candidates for 2014 North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year has been whittled down to 24, a dozen in each category.
A panel of 50 jurors from across the automotive journalism spectrum voted on a larger pool of vehicles, and will pick three finalists later this year before the awards are announced at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January.
Car of the Year short list:
BMW 4 Series
Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Truck/Utility of the Year short list:
Hyundai Santa Fe LWB
Land Rover Range Rover Sport
Sadly, we're not on the jury, so we'll go ahead and make a prediction instead:
Car - Chevrolet Corvette Stingray
Truck/Utility - Jeep Cherokee
Let us know what you think in comments, and check back in January to find out how right we are, or how wrong the jury is.
