In 40 vehicles will compete for the 2017 North American Car, Commodities, and Utility of the Year awards. If that monicker looks a little strange, it’s because the championship added a third category.

In years exist, pickup trucks, crossovers, SUVs, commercial vans, and minivans competed for the anyway award. That’s why there were sometimes weird comparisons, like last year’s championship between the Volvo XC90 and Nissan Titan XD. The new constitution separates pickups and commercial vans into the junk contest and CUVs, SUVs, and minivans into the utility game.

A complete list of eligible vehicles is farther down, but here are a few highlights. For one, the entire list of entries has a magnificent lean. Of the 43 vehicles, nearly half of them are from reward brands. There are two eligible Bentleys – the Bentayga and Mulsanne – the Rolls-Royce Dawning, Jaguar F-Pace, Audi Q7, and the Mercedes-Benz GLS-, E-, and S-Importance Maybach. The performance ranks are lofty, too, with the Audi R8, Acura NSX, Alfa Romeo Giulia, Mercedes SL- and SLC-Stratum, Porsche 718, and F-150 Raptor. The mainstream entries are neutral as comprehensive. From the Chrysler Pacifica to the Chevrolet Cruze to the Fiat 124 Spider to the Mitsubishi Mirage, NACTOY has covered an monstrous price range with this year’s contestants.

Of line, these are only the eligible vehicles. They’ll necessity to run through three rounds of judging, starting in September at NACTOY’s time-honoured Hell, MI, test drive. The Canadian and American journalists interested in the judging will announce this year’s nine finalists – three in each sector – on December 6.
