Big things have been happening in Texas recently. The Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) had a lot of great things to say about the new Ford F-150. In fact, they happened to name it the “Truck of Texas.” They went through 75 vehicles from over 18 brands and the one that stood head and shoulders above the rest was the redesigned 2015 Ford F-150, which will be available at our Farmington Ford dealer.
That wasn’t the only Ford vehicle that won an award at the annual Truck Rodeo, the new Ford Transit was named Commercial Vehicle of Texas as well. It was certainly a good year for the car company. Farmington Ford fans have known for a long time how dependable the F-150 is, which is why it’s the best-selling pickup truck in America for 37 consecutive years.
Big Awards In Texas
The TAWA members were excited to be some of the first people to experience the all-new 2015 Ford F-150 that features major upgrades in the design of this popular truck, and it didn’t disappoint. The engineers improved the signature fully boxed ladder frame. It has more high-strength steel in it than ever, which makes it stronger and lighter at the same time. That has made it the most fuel-efficient F-150 to date.
Great fuel economy is big plus if you’re looking for a Ford in Farmington. The powertrain options finally include some EcoBoost® engines like the 2.7-liter and 3.5-liter versions, which will make a difference in MPG as well. These provide great fuel economy without sacrificing capability, which really resonated with the TAWA members in San Antonio.
