It's that time of year again.

Jurors have combed the list of 28 new cars and 18 utility vehicles on sale for the 2014 model year and picked the short list for North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year awards.

The North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year awards are handed out every year by a jury of 50 U.S. and Canadian automotive journalists, representing all forms of media.(Our own High Gear Media editorial director Marty Padgett is one of the jurors).

The secret voting took place last month; jurors will pick a list of finalists before announcing the winners for Car and Truck/Utility of the Year at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show.

In the meantime, check out the car and truck shortlists to see if any of your favorites made the cut.
