DETROIT -- Chevrolet's Corvette Stingray and Silverado were named 2014 North American Car and Truck of the Year today by a panel of automotive journalists.
The Corvette faced the Mazda3 and the Cadillac CTS in the finals for the car award, while the Silverado was up against the Jeep Cherokee and Acura MDX in the truck/utility finals.
It was the first time Chevrolet swept the awards, although GM swept the awards in 2007 with the Saturn Aura and the Silverado. It also was GM's sixth Car of the Year and its fourth Truck of the Year.
Two other automakers have swept the awards: Honda Motor Co. in 2006 with the Civic and Ridgeline and Ford Motor Co. with the Fusion Hybrid and Transit Connect in 2010.
