'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

The two American automakers that emerged from bankruptcy protection in 2009 have earned bragging rights for a pair of new vehicles.

General Motors' Cadillac ATS and Chrysler's Ram 1500 pickup on Monday won the 2013 North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year. The winners were revealed at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

“We worked tirelessly with blood, sweat and tears to come through the hell we've been through,” Fred Diaz, president and chief executive of the Ram brand, said.

Other truck and utility finalists were the Ford C-Max and Mazda CX-5. The other car finalists were the Ford Fusion and Honda Accord.

This is the 20th year of the awards, voted on by 49 automotive journalists from the United States and Canada. A vehicle must be all new or substantially changed to be eligible.

The word utility was added to the name this year because of the rising number of crossover vehicles.
