When it comes to crafting capable vehicles, Ford’s philosophy can be summed up pretty succinctly: go big or go home. In the state where everything is bigger, this is a mantra that is certainly appreciated, and with good reason.
As a result, the team at our Aztec area Ford dealership wasn’t surprised to see the automaker do particularly well in the Texas Automotive Writers Association awards.
During this year’s Texas Truck Rodeo, nearly 70 of the organization’s writers put trucks and SUVs to the test under brutal off-road conditions. The rodeo was held at Knibbe Ranch in San Antonio this year, and Ford solidified its place as an all-American favorite with a handful of coveted accolades.
Ford Brings Home Big Kudos from Rodeo
After the competition was complete, some of the event’s biggest distinctions were handed to vehicles that you’ll find waiting for you in the showroom here at our Ford dealer serving Aztec. Among them, of course, was the legendary Ford F-Series pickup line.
As America’s best-selling truck for the last 38 years, it’s no surprise that hard workers love this beastly truck lineup. The nameplate was honored as the Truck Line of Texas, solidifying the F-150 and Super Duty as the most advanced and hard working F-Series trucks yet.
Another exciting accolade for the brand came in the form of the SUV of Texas award. The title has gone to the same competitor for the past five years, but now the alluring Ford Explorer Platinum has unseated the competition and ascended to the throne. With a long history of providing capability alongside comfort, it’s easy to see why this award-winner is also America’s best-selling SUV.
Finally, Ford earned a significant nod for one of its latest and greatest innovations. The automaker’s Pro Trailer Backup Assist system was named the Best Technology after a day filled with rigorous testing across the board.
