It'll come down to the CTS and Malibu, guaranteed. And I bet the Malibu will take it, it's apparently a MAJOR surprise from Chevy/GM.

I think the CTS will take it, the overall design is just awesome.

Honestly I've been in the new Town and Country and it's freaking SWEET it has tv from sirius sat radio. Super comfortable, great space, it even has good power. It's weird I've never thought of a minivan as cool, but that thing rocks. Chrysler knows their stuff when it comes to that market.

Idk why that is in for "car of the year" though...
