Lexus IS Nominated for North American Car of the Year Award
There's so much stiff competition this year, that even being on the list should be considered an accomplishment. And given that the nominees span such a wide variety, it's kind of strange that an ultimate winner will be crowned from the crowd.

But let's ignore the sometimes nonsensical reasoning of the jury and keep our fingers crossed. The full list is below.
