January 23, 2018

As Matthew McConaughey would say: All right, all right all right.

The Lincoln Motor Co. spokesman would probably be pleased to hear the luxury carmaker’s 2018 Navigator drove away with the highest honor in The Detroit News’ annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

One hundred judges selected from the public voted the SUV as Best of Show as well as Best Road-Trip Ride at the Detroit auto show.

Ford Motor Co. also took the prize for Best Dream Machine with its Ford GT.

Two Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV vehicles also took first-place in two categories — the Chrysler Pacifica for Best Family Fun Finder and the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon for Baddest Off-Road Vehicle.

Other winners include:

BMW i8 roadster in the Coolest Technology categoryInfiniti Q Inspiration for Best Future ConceptKia Stinger for The Most For Your MoneySMART fortwo for Most Eco-friendlyToyota Concept i-Walk for Most Amazing Mobility.

The announcements were made Tuesday at a Detroit Economic Club annual luncheon.
