Honda Accord wins auto of the Year

This morning in Detroit, the judges of the North American Car of the Year Award announced that the 2018 Honda Accord would be taking home the prize. It will go on sale early this year, Honda News reported.

With contenders hailing from around the world, swarming to the US for the largest auto show on the continent, this year's winners came from lands near and far away.

The Accord, which went on sale last fall, is among many revamped auto models hoping to snare buyers as sales fall and SUVs rise.

Last year's winners were the Chevrolet Bolt, Honda Ridgeline and Windsor-made Chrysler Pacifica. The Truck of the Year is the Lincoln Navigator. It's the first award for the Lincoln Navigator SUV.

"Lincoln is honored to be named the best among such a strong field of competitors", said Kumar Galhotra, president, The Lincoln Motor Company.

For added durability, the engine features a forged-steel crankshaft and connecting rods, and chain-driven dual overhead cams. It'll sit below the Ford F-150, the market-leading full-size truck, with Ford hoping to attract legacy Ranger owners.

The awards, on their 24th year, are handed out based on innovation, design, value, driver satisfaction and safety.

This marks the third year in a row that Honda has received an award from the North American jury of automotive journalists.

Organizers accept no advertising, though automakers try to capitalize on the marketing value of the awards.
