DETROIT (AP) -

The Cadillac ATS and Ram 1500 pickup are the North American Car and Truck of the Year winners.

The winners were unveiled Monday morning at Cobo Center in Detroit.

Car finalists were the Cadillac ATS, Ford Fusion, and Honda Accord. Truck and utility vehicle finalists were the Ford C-Max, Mazda CX-5, along with the Ram.

Forty-nine automotive journalists voted on the winning vehicles from the selected list of finalists.

A vehicle must be all new or substantially changed to be eligible.

This is the 20th year for the awards. Organizers accept no advertising, though carmakers try to capitalize on the marketing value of the honors.
