The Chevrolet Malibu was named 2008 North American Car of the Year at the opening of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The vehicle was chosen by this year's media jury from a field of 15 cars and 13 trucks. GM vehicles captured four of the final six candidate spots for the awards and for the second consecutive year a car from General Motors won the award. The North American Car and Truck of the Year (NACTOY) awards are given annually by prominent automotive journalists who evaluate the vehicles on factors including value for the dollar, innovation, handling, performance, safety and driver satisfaction.
