The Ford Mustang, Hyundai Genesis and Volkswagen Golf were named finalists on Tuesday for North American Car of the Year. The Lincoln MKC, Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Colorado were named North American Truck/Utility of the Year finalists.
The winners will be announced on January 12 at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

Edmunds says: Kudos to the finalists in this tough competition.
