2012 Ford F-150 Named "Truck of Texas"

The 2012 Ford F-150 has received the Truck of Texas award from the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) at its annual Truck Rodeo.

“Texan consumers put their trust in TAWA’s automotive journalists. After lining up vehicles from major auto manufacturers, our members determined Ford simply had the best trucks and crossover,” said Mike Herzing, president of TAWA. “But the real winners here are Texas’ truck buyers. Ford delivers the trucks that fit their lifestyles.”

“These honors show Ford trucks still reign supreme in Texas, and it is rewarding to see that the truck-savvy Texas auto writers appreciate just how innovative our F-Series pickups are,” said Mark Fields, Ford’s president of The Americas. “These awards validate what our customers have been telling us about our ‘Built Ford Tough’ F-150, and we are honored by their recognition of the strength of our truck lineup as well as our crossovers and EcoBoost engines.”

A total of 48 vehicles were entered in the rodeo and evaluated by the 57 registered TAWA members.

The 2012 Ford Edge was awarded the honor of Crossover of Texas and Best Midsize CUV of Texas.

Ford’s lineup of trucks also was named Truck Line of Texas for the 12th consecutive year.
