Cadillac CTS-V, Jeep Grand Cherokee Are 2011 Internet Car and Truck of the Year

Jurors at Internet Car and Truck of the Year have deliberated and came up with two winners. At the same time, Average Joes as the website calls its voting users, chose their favorite car of the bunch. American brands took the accolades in all four categories.

The Internet Pros are a team of fifteen carefully selected online writers from famous automotive websites, while Average Joes is an extremely unoriginal title they came up with for the group of voting users on the website.

The automotive writers and motoring public disagreed upon choosing a single winner, instead they awarded two vehicles to make it look like the public actually cares about the Pros' opinion when it chooses a car to buy or contemplates photos of it over the interwebs. Internet Pros voted for the 2011 Cadillac CTS-V, while Average Joes have named the 2011 Ford Mustang GT as Car of the Year, which actually makes sense,
considering that the car was upgraded and might not handle like a log on a river anymore. Both sides of the barricade agreed upon the Truck of the Year winner which was the new Jeep Grand Cherokee by wide margins.

The Internet Car of the Year also awarded defunct automotive writer Jerry Flint, who had been covering the industry for more than 50 years, as Automotive Journalist of the Year. He was one of the most prominent business reporters, having collaborated with Forbes magazine, The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal. The award will be presented to his widow, automotive journalist Kate McLeod, at the Dec. 9 International Motor Press Association meeting in New York City.
