It seems to happen on a yearly basis. Naming of the North American Car of the Year. Each year a bevy of journalists get together and name the Car of the year. Who took it this year, you might ask? Well let me tell you. Volkswagen, with their brand new 2015 Golf. Beating out the Ford mustang and the Hyundai Genesis. Currently in its seventh generation the Golf offers more selection than most of its competitors. So no wonder why it was chosen as the winner.
That wide range of choices is one of the factors that led us to choose the Golf as our 2015 Best Car To Buy. Volkswagen’s last win was the North American Car of the Year in 1999, with the New Beetle.
Meanwhile, the 2015 Ford F-150 full-size pickup truck took home 2015 North American Truck of the Year honors.
For the 2015 model year, the F-150 was fully redesigned with several efficiency-focused features such as a lightweight aluminum body and downsized 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine option, joining the previous 3.5-liter version.The F-150 was chosen over the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado mid-size pickup and 2015 Lincoln MKC crossover, giving Ford its eighth Truck of the Year award.
The awards–now in their 22nd year–judge vehicles based on a number of factors including innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction, and value for money.
