ROCKY MOUNTAIN AUTOMOTIVE PRESS ANNOUNCES 2011 VEHICLE OF THE YEAR AWARDS


The striking Cadillac CTS Coupe, go-anywhere Jeep Grand Cherokee, tough Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD, fuel-efficient Ford Fiesta, and high-value Hyundai Sonata are the 2011 Rocky Mountain vehicles of the year as chosen by automotive journalists.

Winners of the fifth annual Rocky Mountain Automotive Press Vehicle of the Year Awards were announced today in a ceremony at the opening of the Denver International Auto Show.

The field for the 2011 awards included every significant new car, pickup, crossover and SUVs for sale in the region.  More than 75 models received test-drive evaluations in Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming over the past months by members of the Rocky Mountain Automotive Press (RMAP).

Assessing the manufacturer-provided models for value, performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety, RMAP presented awards in five categories.
·         Chiseled good looks and refined performance earned the elegant 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe the RMAP 2011 New Vehicle of the Year award for the top redesigned or new-to-market model.

·         Nearly unstoppable off-road and comfortable on-road, the all-new 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the RMAP 2011 Rocky Mountain SUV of the Year among crossovers and sport-utility vehicles.

·         Capable of pulling a 17,800-pound trailer and boasting a new frame and a revised turbodiesel V-8, the re-engineered 2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD has what it takes to be the RMAP 2011 Rocky Mountain Pickup Truck of the Year.

·         The RMAP 2011 Rocky Mountain High-Mileage Vehicle of the Year must be fuel-efficient but also comfortable, safe, and fun to drive. That describes the all-new 2011 Ford Fiesta, which rates 30/40 mpg city/highway and delivers European-bred road manners.

·         Head-turning styling, a roomy interior, and a choice of four-cylinder engines, including a turbo and a gas-electric hybrid, makes the redesigned 2011 Hyundai Sonata midsize sedan the most impressive all-around 2011 automobile and the RMAP 2011 Rocky Mountain Car of the Year.
This is the fifth year for the Rocky Mountain Vehicle of the Year Awards. Representatives of the winning manufacturers were on hand to accept the trophies and the recognized vehicles were on display during the Auto Show’s public days, March 30-April 11 of 2o11.
