Ford F-150 Named Motor Trend "Truck of the Year"

Since its introduction as a 2009 model, the Ford F-150 in many respects has raised the benchmark when it comes to 1/2 ton full-size pickups. Incorporating many features that improved ride, handling, capability and practicality, the lineup received a major boost (literally) with new powertrains for the 2011 model year.

Collectively this has resulted, not only in maintaining the one-fifty's position as sales leader in the segment, but also in a truck that consistently stands apart from the herd.

This is something Motor Trend magazine duly noted, during it's annual truck of the year test for 2012 models. When all was said and done, the F-150 scored a solid lead over rival contenders, including Nissan's new full-size van, the NV, the Ram HD Laramie Longhorn and Toyota Tacoma.

Dang, I sure thought the F-150 had been around longer than that. Coulda sworn I owned one back in 85 or so. Good job though. Way to go Ford.
