The Lexus NX has made the short list of ten vehicles that are in the running for the North American Truck/Utility of the Year award. It looks like some pretty stiff competition but I think that the Lexus NX has a good shot at the top prize. Check out the list below and let us know if you think the NX will win, or if something else will instead.

- Audi Q3
- Chevy Colorado
- Chevy Tahoe
- Ford F-150
- GMC Canyon
- Lexus NX
- Lincoln MKC
- Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class
- Nissan Murano
- Porsche Macan
- Subaru Outback
- Toyota Highlander

I was excited when I saw NX on the list. Then I read that 49 journalists submit and vote on the vehicles - sorta like the Golden Globes for movies. Anyone could win - but since I'm a SUV person I'm pulling for the NX. Just need the pricing to see if the value is there.

The new Chevy Colorado looks good too....
I briefly saw pictures of it scrolling through autoblog and it does indeed look great, far better than the outgoing model. Even the new GMC Canyon looks great, i like it better than the colorado.

Full frame, e-locker in rear, 300 HP, high tow rating........but knowing that it is a Chevy, something is screwed up.... >:D

I'd still be considering a truck if they hadn't gotten so long as to not fit in my garage. I used to have a compact truck sometime ago and it was great except for people throwing empty cans in the bed (before recycling days).

Well there is a bit of a backlash to that and we do see companies coming out with smaller SUVs. Cars are pretty big these days though. I think in the future they will shrink down a little bit again. Seems pretty difficult to compare luxury CUVs like the NX and Q3 with trucks like the Colorado and F-150.
