The 2009 Hyundai Genesis left the Dodge Challenger, Nissan GT-R and the Honda Fit in the dust when it accepted the award for the 2009 North American Car of the Year. The 2009 Ford F-150 once again reestablished its territory taking the 2009 North American Truck of the Year award.
The Genesis also beat the 2009 Ford Flex and the 2009 Volkswagen Jetta TDI. In the final round of voting, the F-150 beat the Dodge Ram and the Mercedes-Benz ML320 BlueTEC.
So it wasn't a bad show after all, Detroit!
