There are two Ontario connections to a pair of North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year finalists.
The Chrysler Pacifica is built at FCA’s Windsor assembly plant and is a finalist for North American Utility Vehicle of the Year. The Ford F-Series Super Duty is up for Truck of the Year. The company’s Essex engine plant in Windsor builds the trucks' engines.
The nine finalists were chosen by an independent jury of 57 automotive journalists from short lists of 15 cars, 11 utility vehicles and four trucks. Two of the jurists are Sharon Silke Carty and Richard Truett of Automotive News.
The Honda Civic and the Volvo XC90 won the awards for 2016.
