Motor Trend Awards Announced for 2015

Motor Trend AwardsThis year’s Motor Trend Awards have been released, and it’s a really good year for Chevrolet. The brand sporting the bowtie for its logo took home two of the three awards as the major automotive publication announced their favorite car, truck and SUV for 2015.

Winners of Motor Trend Awards
