DETROIT (AP) - The Hyundai Genesis G70, Hyundai Kona and the Ram pickup have received North American car, sport utility and truck of the year awards.
The awards were announced Monday at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
This year's car finalists also included the Honda Insight and Volvo S60/V60. Truck finalists included the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500.
SUV finalists also included the Acura RDX and the Jaguar I-Pace.
Last year's winners were the Honda Accord, Lincoln Navigator and the Volvo XC60.
About 55 automotive journalists serve as judges. Eligible vehicles must be new or substantially changed.
Organizers accept no advertising, though automakers try to capitalize on the marketing value of the awards, which are now in their 25th year.
