    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?

    While I think the chances are good, Model X isn't going to surprise the automotive world in the same way Model S did. There are a number of classic ICE competitors with new CUVs out this year that should provide competition. XC90 and Pilot are all new for 2016.

    I heard it is very likely to win the "Most Falcon Winged Car" award.

    The Autopilot will help against the competition, if the release of 7.0 wasn´t too late...

    It feels a bit like a bad omen starting the thread expecting the awards will come anyway though.

    Beats the alternative: "Best Concept Car that Never Made it Into Production." In that sense, the Model X is still really early, compared to the "competition."
