Nope the Benz GL got that one, sorry and the Aciada wasn't there to be test so the SUV went to the Pilot. The small SUV Rav-4 (ugh) not the Subie Forester and the Van well duh the Honda.

Damn. For their contest thing, I predicted SRX, Pilot, RAV-4, Odyssey, and Silverado. Didn't see the GL coming... as car-like as it is for a full-sizer, it's too un-sporty for them.

If you ask me, no frame (BOF construction) =/= truck or SUV.

Crossover = unibody.

Therefore crossover = tall wagon or goofy lookign minivan.

So in other words... RAV4 = Corolla Minivan.

How do you feel about the Jeep Cherokee/Commanche?

i would classify Jeeps with the uniframe design (unibody with welded-on trame) like the Grand Cherokee, Liberty, XJ Cherokee and Commander as SUVs. They are true SUVs, not truck-based and not car based.. the Comanche was a truck, but it's been gone for 20 years...

I am happy to report the winner of the pickup award in Car and Drivers 5 Best Trucks is the Silverado. Oh and yes it DID BEAT the Tundra! *So much for the four speed automatic!*

Wahoo!

Well I haven't read the article, but I believe that C&D's rules state that the truck has to be on sale as of press time......

I'm not sure if Tundra JUST missed being considered or not?

At the DC auto show they had a blue 2007 Silverado LTZ on a turntable, in the bed was a HUGE replica of the Motor Trend Truck Of The Year award.(I should have gotten a picture of that)

I did! :D

My camera didn't feel like taking good pictures that day for some reason, so I apologize for the fuzziness. But the display did draw a fair number of people to it by the time I walked by it to head downstairs to see the other displays.
