You have just read the most diverse listing of nominees in VOTY history. It is also the largest field presented for consideration ever. It features first-time nods for American Honda's Acura division, Audi of America, BMW of North America and Mercedes-Benz of North America. Chrysler Group LLC's Ram truck brand received their first nod separate from Dodge.

You can reference the guidelines for consideration, along with the procedure and timeline of the award by re-reading this particular post.

The next step is to whittle down this Long List onto a Short List of ten nominees. This will be announced on November 1 when the polls open on SurveyMonkey.com. That is where you come in – to finally seal the deal for one special vehicle. It will be announced on November 17 after the polls close for this year's VOTY.

The ballgame has begun. The evaluations are being calculated and the panel has been engaged. What happens next is anyone's guess…
