What happened to the Ridgeline? So much for the "truck of the year". Good to see C&D didn't fall for it like Motor Trend did.

Motor Trend's award is for new or substantially redesigned vehicles and C&D is for the best vehicle regardless of whether it is new or not. The F150 is in it's 3rd. year and wouldn't be eligible with Motor Trend.

No, C&D is only open to new/redesigned and the previous years winner, not every single model.

I know that, which is why I was being sarcastic about it.
