SANTA MONICA, California Edmunds' Deputy Editor Erin Riches will serve on the prestigious North American Car/Truck of the Year jury.

"Ms. Riches is a highly respected and talented automotive journalist and NACTOY is delighted she'll be sharing her time and expertise with us," said Chris Jensen, a NACTOY juror.

Riches said the selection "means that everything we at Edmunds.com have done (and continue to do) on an editorial level to make car buying easier and more transparent for consumers is being recognized at a high level."

She added: "I will bring the same scrutiny and enthusiasm that has served me well as a writer to the NACTOY jury."

Scott Oldham, Edmunds' vice president of editorial and editor in chief, also is a member of the NACTOY jury.

The awards are unique in the United States because instead of being given by a single media outlet they are awarded by a group of automotive journalists from the United States and Canada who represent magazines, television, radio, newspapers and Web sites.

Designed to recognize the most outstanding new vehicles of the year, the awards are given to vehicles that are benchmarks in their segments based on factors including innovation, comfort, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar.

The jury is composed of no more than 50 automotive journalists. Most have covered the auto industry for decades.

In January, the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Silverado were named the 2014 North American Car and Truck of the Year.

Edmunds says: Kudos to Erin Riches on this major achievement.
