As much as I like the Ford C-Max, I was quite surprised by the announcement yesterday by the NACTOY jury composed of fifty automotive journalists. The Ford C-Max is one of three finalists as the 2013 Truck of the Year. The winner will be announced on January 14th. Did they really mean truck? Yes they did. I did a little research. In 2011, the 2012 nominees were Honda CR-V, BMW X3, and Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. Are these really trucks? The NACTOY changed the award category to Truck/Utility of the Year in early 2012. OK. Most of the news reports state truck, but it should be Truck/Utility. I guess Ford should use the “Built Ford Tough” logo on the C-Max now. With a tow hitch, maybe the C-Max can pull a semi out of the mud too. Yeah. Sure.
