Hello Honda. The Honda Accord took home the highest prize at the North American International Auto Show. Among other things, judges look at innovation, safety and value for vehicles redesigned for 2018. The judges dubbed the new Honda Accord car of the year and say it’s roomier than previous models.
Volvo’S XC60 won utility vehicle of the year. It’s a compact SUV with a plug-in hybrid system.
The Lincoln Navigator won truck of the year. This is the first time in the model’s history that the Navigator was completely re-engineered. A judge called it a dramatic update for the brand.
Lincoln’s sibling Ford also made news at the auto show. In addition to it’s sporty edge SUV, Ford unveiled the 2019 Ford Ranger, giving the model new light after pulling it from U.S. and Canadian markets seven years ago.
Ford also announced that it will more than double its previous promise to spend 4 and a half billion dollars on electric vehicles, which could make a difference in the kinds of cars you’ll see on the roads.
