Range Rover Evoque Becomes 2012 North American Truck of the Year

The fact that the North American Truck of The Year initiative has gained a negative reputation due to the selection of vehicles that are by no means actual trucks is no secret, but we’ll go ahead and announce the winner.

The Range Rover Evoque has received the title for 2012, with the CROSSOVER being crowned at the Detroit Auto Show. The Evoque was selected over two other finalists (just as crossover-ish): the BMW X3 and the Honda CR-V, with the criteria being the following: value for the dollar, innovation, handling, performance, safety and driver satisfaction.

"We are honored that the all-new Range Rover Evoque has been named the 2012 North American Truck of the Year, one of the most celebrated automotive awards in our industry," said Andy Goss, President, Jaguar Land Rover North America. "This recognition is in keeping with the overwhelmingly positive global response from consumers who are selecting the vehicle for its ideal combination of luxury and capability, within a sustainable package."
