Ford Fusion / Explorer nominated for Car /Truck of the Year

From Edmunds.com

Ford, Honda Dominate Car and Truck of the Year Finalists
Date posted: 12-13-2005

DETROIT Ford and Honda took four of the six finalist spots in voting for North American Car and Truck of the Year. The winners will be announced in early January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The top three finalists for Car of the Year are the Ford Fusion, the Honda Civic, and the Pontiac Solstice.

The top three finalists for Truck of the Year are the Ford Explorer, the Honda Ridgeline, and the Nissan Xterra.

What this means to you: U.S. and Canadian auto writers narrow their list of favorites to six, with the finalists evenly divided between Detroit and Tokyo.

I don't know about that...The Fusion has been selling REALLY well. Ford has gotten a LOT of great reviews on it. I hope they can pick up the win. Maybe they will pull off a double-whammy with the Exploder.....I mean, Explorer too...

Ford won't win. It can't. You all know that precious honda can't do anything wrong. The civic and that pos ridgeline will walk with the awards. Explorer for sure won't win. It is still an evil suv after all.

come on dude don't hate on hondas. every car maker does a redesign and they win when they do. when the new f150 came out it won truck of the year. when the new mustang came out it won car of the year i think. so now honda did its redesign. the fusion is just a rebadged Mazda 6. which is a tarus essentially anyway. people hate the taurus so its about time they got rid of it.
