The 2012 Ford F-150 has won several important awards over the course of the year. However, no award won has meant more to the Ford Motor Company than the Motor Trend Truck of the Year award. The F-150 impressed Motor Trend with its engineering excellence, advancement in design, efficiency, safety, value, and performance.
The Award was presented to Mark Fields, Ford President of the Americas, at the Ford headquarters in Dearborn. “The 2012 F-150 is a no-compromise solution that can be tailored to fit virtually every customer’s needs, and the Motor Trend Truck of the Year award further reinforces that this is truly the best choice for America’s truck owners,” said Fields. “We are proud to receive this award and even more pleased that our F-150 customers have additional validation of their top choice.”
Since 1989, the Ford F-150 has won the Truck of the Year more times than any other truck with a total of four. These model years include 1997, 2004, 2009, and 2012.
When Motor Trend editors chose the 2012 F-150, they explained, “F-150s are built to work and felt better the more they were challenged. Ford offers an enormous variety of configurations and designs, making the truck tailorable to just about any need. It’s the combination of advancement in design, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value, and the performance of intended function that has earned the Ford F-150 the title of Motor Trend’s 2012 Truck of the Year.”
With 516,639 trucks sold in the U.S. this year through November, the F-150 is the nation's best-selling vehicle. The F-150 has led the truck market in 35 straight years. It was Ford's 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine that helped capture the award.
