The 2018 Honda Accord was named the North American Car of the Year at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit Mich. Monday

The 2018 Lincoln Navigator took the top truck honor, while the 2018 Volvo XC60 took top utility honor.

The all-new 2018 Honda Accord, the 10 generation of America's most popular vehicle, has earned the prestigious 2018 North American auto of the Year award.

Larger than models from previous years, the Accord edged out the Toyota Camry and the Kia Stinger for the honor presented in Detroit. The award program, now in its 24th year, has twice gone to the Honda Civic.

2018 marks the third win in a row for Honda.

Completely redesigned from the ground-up, the all-new Accord features a lighter and more rigid body structure, an advanced new chassis design wrapped in a more sophisticated, sleek and athletic design with top class interior space and comfort.

"It is a very competitive segment, and in the past we have had much better share in this segment", he said. "The entire Lincoln team is very proud of the work that was done to create a truly differentiated, luxury Lincoln experience in our all-new Navigator". "It was time to create a new Navigator and take that rightful place in the segment for Lincoln".

The winners were voted on by a panel of more than 60 jurors, who made their picks based on "segment leadership, innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar".

Last year's winners were the Chevrolet Bolt, Honda Ridgeline and Chrysler Pacifica minivan.

Organizers accept no advertising, though automakers try to capitalize on the marketing value of the awards.
