DETROIT (WLNS) - The Lansing-made Cadillac CTS did not win the 2014 North American Car of the Year. The car is made at the Grand River Plant in Lansing.

The Chevy Corvette Stingray beat out the CTS and the Mazda3.

The award is given based on factors including "innovation, design, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value for the dollar," according to their website.

The Cadillac ATS was named the winner in 2013. It's also made at the GM plant in Lansing.

The announcement came at the North American International Auto Show on Monday. The auto show runs from January 13 through the 26.

Lansing Plant Communications Manager, Erin Davis said, "congratulations to the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Silverado 1500 on being named the 2014 North American Car and Truck of the Year. This is back-to-back wins for GM, since the Cadillac ATS won the 2013 North American Car of the Year award. We, at LGR, were excited to be in the running again with the all-new Cadillac CTS this year. It's such an honor to be recognized for the hard work and high-quality vehicles we are producing in Lansing."
