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.
