The 2011 Ford Explorer has been named North American Truck of the Year at the 2011 North American International Auto Show in Detroit this morning. As a finalist it beat out the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Dodge Durango for top honors.

In the North American Car of the Year competition, two of the three finalists are electric vehicles, although one does have a range extending gas engine onboard and this is what kicked it over the top to make the Chevrolet Volt as the top car over the Nissan Leaf and Hyundai Sonata.
