Interiors Of The Year Named

INTERIORS OF THE YEAR NAMED
The Chevrolet Avalanche and Ford Thunderbird have been named 2002
Interior if the Year for new cars and trucks, respectively. Auto Interiors
magazine presented the awards at the Auto Interiors show in Detroit May
14.
The other finalists for the car award were the BMW 7-Series and Mini
Cooper. The truck finalists were the Lincoln Blackwood and Honda CR-V.
The editorial staff of Auto Interiors magazine judged the contest. They
evaluated more than 30 cars and trucks that were either new or
substantially redesigned for the 2002 model year.
"The objective of the judging was to identify the car and truck whose
interiors stand out for their beauty, functionality and innovation," says
Auto Interiors editor Carmen Pang.
Criteria for the award were: appearance, functionality, innovation and
overall impression of the vehicle.
Ford studied Thunderbirds from 1955 to 1961 when it designed the 2002
model's interior, Ford designer Mark Conforzi says. The design team
focused on exposed metal and the "expressive use of color" for the car, he
said.
GM designer John Cafaro called the Avalanche's award "a recognition of GM'
s innovation and development of products our customers 'gotta have.'"
Key interior suppliers were also recognized. For the Avalanche, they
included Autoliv, Collins & Aikman, Delphi, Findlay, Lear, Meridian,
Takata-Petri and TRW.
Thunderbird suppliers included Alps Kiekert, Lear, Visteon, Takata-Petri
and TRW.- Mark Phelan
