Starting this off although there aren't any yet. We are on the cusp of having the Motor Trend 2016 "Car/SUV/Truck of the Year" awards being announced. This typically happens in early November going by past years: Car, SUV and Truck of the Year Awards - Best Cars - Motor Trend The Model S snagged the COTY award almost exactly 3 years ago and got a huge boost from it. Tesla has generously used the award to promote the car on its website and other literature. So... wonder if Tesla managed to give Motor Trend a (Founder's?!) Model X for testing in time for "SUV of the Year"? (Please, let's leave the discussions on the "utility" aspect of the X - including second row foldability or lack thereof - to other threads) My understanding is that the X would only be eligible this year for the MT SOTY - as a new or a significantly redesigned vehicle - and may not be so, next year. Thoughts? Chances of winning?
