Today is the day that we present the Long List for the 2020 Victory & Reseda Vehicle of The Year Award!
This year's Long List continues to be representative of the work V&R is doing to present these vehicles to you. Some of which are considered stalwarts in the marketplace. Other vehicles represent the latest, the greatest, and the freshest ideas for their intended consumer.
Just like every #VOTY before it, the idea of "vehicle" is not one to put into a row of silos. In our automotive world, we continue to recognize the continued realities of the marketplace, where the SUV is king and queen of the showroom floor. Trucks also played a huge role in this year's #VOTY2020 Long List, as they continue to drive sales volumes in this industry.
Yet, you will find some vehicles that represent the enthusiast. If you are one of those people, take solace that you have not been ignored through this work.
Without further ado, here is the Long List of nominees for Victory & Reseda's 2020 Vehicle of The Year Award – #VOTY2020:
Chevrolet Silverado HD
Ford F-Series Super Duty
Hyundai Santa Fe
Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross
Mitsubishi Mirage G4
Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
Toyota GR Supra
Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport
What we have here are 46 nominees up for #VOTY2020. Five of which are pickup trucks, along with 23 SUVs and crossovers. This amount for over half of the nominees on this list.
As far as brands go, Toyota has seven nominees, followed by Ford and Volkswagen with five nods. Among OEMs, Toyota Motor North America has 11 nominees, followed by Hyundai-Kia with eight.
As for their counties of origin, this list are vehicles that were assembled in seven different countries – including our first vehicle ever nominated to #VOTY that was assembled in Austria.
One more interesting fact about this Long List: Four of the nominees are no longer being manufactured.
In a couple of weeks, this list will dwindle down to five finalists. When we announce the finalists for #VOTY2020, then it will be your turn to cast your vote to choose which one will take home the coveted award!
This year, you will only have ONE DAY to cast your vote online!
