Just updated today, CNN Money gave props to Hyundai's Genesis as the best ride of the year.

And I think they deserve all the credit. I remember when Hyundais were considered jokes. And now they can sell a $34k luxury car. Brilliant!

In other news, the F-150 was tagged "Truck of the Year."

To be eligible for the top prize, a vehicle had to be all-new, completely redesigned or "substantially changed," and available to customers during calendar year 2008.

The three finalists for Car of the Year this year were the Genesis, Ford Flex, and Volkswagen Jetta TDI. The Jetta is powered by a diesel engine.
Not a surprise.
