COTY: Well done, Chevrolet!!
For 2014, the Silverado and the Corvette Stingray won the North American Truck of the Year and Car of the Year respectively. Very nice!

I used to ready MT but came to the realization that their COTY simply goes to which ever vehicle in the test is the newest.

And going on how "American" a vehicle it now a days is very hard to tell. If its how North American it is then the Silverado, F-150 and Ram are close to tied because they are made mostly in the US and Canada. The Ridgeline may be assembled here but a lot of the parts start their life in Japan.
I think my 96' is about 90-95% made in North America, but only 80% in the USA.

There are all kinds of write ups on how "American" or if you will "North American" vehicles are. I guess alot of it depends on personal opinion on what value is put on assembled here as apposed to where each and every part is made that makes up the vehicle and also where the "technology or engineering" for each make and/or model was created. I myself would put the most "American" Make and/or model is the manufacturer that puts the most of us "Americans" to work. But thats a whole other subject compared to what we are talking about here I guess.
My Silverado was assembled and painted in Mexico and so far Ive seen a lot of parts that say canada and believe it or not China on it. I have yet to see a Made in the USA stamp on it but I havent looked for it really either.

The "North American" part of the title has nothing to do with where the vehicle is made. It's more like "this panel of North American auto journalists chooses the XXX as the car of the year."
But, then again, there are plenty of Silverados made in Canada and Mexico...but that is still North America.
