Two Cadillac CTS models – the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V and the CTS Concept Coupe –swept the production and concept car categories at the 2008 EyesOn Design Awards at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The new BMW X6 and the Chrysler ecoVoyager took respective production and concept truck honors. The only automotive design awards selected and judged by top automotive design experts from around the world, the EyesOn Design Awards for Design Excellence was the final event of the Press Preview Days portion of the 2008 NAIAS. This year's panel of 20 automotive design experts that selected the winners was led by a trio of chief judges that included Chris Bangle, BMW Group design chief, Jack Telnack, vice president of global design, Ford Motor Co. (retired) and Nate Young, of the Art Center College of Design. The EyesOn Design Award for the BMW X6, which the manufacturer calls a Sports Activity Coupe, was accepted by Anders Warming, exterior design director of BMW cars, on behalf of the entire BMW Design Team.
