Some of which are considered stalwarts in the marketplace. Other vehicles represent the latest and greatest ideas for their intended consumer.
Today is the day that we present the Long List of Nominees for the 2023 Victory & Reseda Vehicle of The Year Award – #VOTY2023!
This year's Long List continues to be representative of the work V&R is doing to present these vehicles to you. Some of which are considered stalwarts in the marketplace. Other vehicles represent the latest, the greatest, and the freshest ideas for their intended consumer.
Just like every #VOTY before it, the idea of "vehicle" is not one to put into a row of silos. Even in the face of continuing supply chain shortages and inventory challenges, we continue to recognize the continued realities of the marketplace.
You will find some vehicles that represent everybody – trucks, SUVs, minivans, sedans and coupes…and, this year, battery-electric vehicles!
To review the #VOTY2023 process so far, please read our introductory post.
Without further ado, here is the Long List of nominees for Victory & Reseda's 2023 Vehicle of The Year Award – #VOTY2023:
Alfa Romeo Giulia
Alfa Romeo Tonale
Hyundai Santa Fe
Jeep Grand Cherokee

This year, we have 39 nominees up for #VOTY2023. That includes 15 electrified vehicles – including battery-electric vehicles.
