DETROIT (WKZO) -- Autoweek Magazine has, for the first time, named a single manufacturer in granting its Best of Car and Best of Truck Awards. Chevrolet has won best car for its Corvette while the Silverado takes home the best truck award.

Autoweek Editor Wes Raynal says that each year hundreds of new cars and trucks are tested and evaluated, some going on vacation with editors and writers with others zig-zagging through Detroit's streets for weeks. Raynal says that unlike other publications, Autoweek runs its competition completely under the radar to minimize any automaker's ability to sway the results with lobbying of specially prepped vehicles.
