Corvette wins car of year award, Kia Telluride takes top SUV

Chevrolet logo

The new mid-engine Chevrolet Corvette is being named the North American Car of the Year. The Kia Telluride took Sport Utility of the Year honors and the Jeep Gladiator won the Truck of the Year Award. About 50 automotive journalists serve as judges for the awards, which are announced every January. They're chosen from dozens of candidates and must be new or substantially changed. Automakers often use the awards in advertising. The judges evaluate finalists on value, innovation, design, performance, safety, technology and driver satisfaction.
