The 2013 North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year Award short list has been released. These lists of cars and trucks have been edited down from a long list of 45 vehicles that we detailed back in August.
Ford has the most vehicles on this year’s short list, with 3 combined. Nissan’s most innovated year ever is off to a great start, as they have two vehicles in the running.
Soon enough the jurors will edit this list down further to three finalists that will be announced at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2013.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced recently that the 2013 Ford Escape has received a four star crash rating.
The 2013 Ford Escape was remodeled for 2013. NHTSA gave it four stars in frontal testing and rollover testing, and it received five stars in side crashes. So along with being stylish, safety is another feature of the 2013 Ford Escape.
