Finalists revealed for first Internet Car and Truck of the Year award
Tuesday 03 November 2009
On October 30 the shortlists for the premiere edition of the Internet Car and Truck of the Year awards were announced.
Based on the premise that consumers have unique opinions and experiences with cars distinct from those of journalists, the awards are outlined as "the first time Internet-savvy consumers have the opportunity to select their Car and Truck of the Year in one place at a site not dominated by manufacturer advertising," on the US-based website.
More than 10,000 voters from around the world have declared their favorites: The finalists for car of the year have been narrowed to the Chevrolet Camaro, Ford Taurus SHO and the Shelby GT500.
In the truck segment the Audi Q7 diesel, Ford Raptor and Chevrolet Equinox will vie for the people's prize.
The poll winners, as well as the choices from a panel of 12 web-based journalists, will be announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show, opening December 2.
Votes are accepted until 5 pm November 13 at: http://www.internetcarandtruckoftheyear.com/Consumer_Car___Truck_Voting.html
