The American Truck Dealers (ATD) will select from seven nominees for distinction as 2014 ATD Commercial Truck of the Year, an annual award recognizing the top truck entries in the heavy- and medium-duty categories.

Winners will be announced during a special presentation at the NADA/ATD Convention and Expo in New Orleans on Sunday, Jan. 26.

The heavy-duty (Class 8) nominees are:

• International ProStar with Cummins ISX15



• Kenworth T880 Vocational Truck with PACCAR MX-13 engine



• Peterbilt Model 579



The medium-duty (Class 3-7) nominees are:

• Hino 195h-DC



• International TerraStar 4×4



• Kenworth Class 6 K370 Cabover



• Peterbilt Model 220



The award recognizes a winner in each category, and winners will be announced Sunday, Jan. 26, during the 2014 ATD Convention & Expo, which runs concurrently with the National Automobile Dealers Association Convention & Expo in New Orleans from Jan. 24-27.

Winners were determined by a panel of journalists, who test drove and evaluated the trucks at the Manheim’s auction site in Orlando in October.
